Cyprus: Plan your Next Golf Vacation on the Greek Island


0 Flares 0 Flares ×


While many golfers like to spend time pursuing golf in such poplar places as Hilton Head, Palm Springs, or Miami, aficionados of the game also like to spend such leisure hours on the Greek island of Cyprus too.


Cyprus, which is located in the Mediterranean Sea, lies south of Turkey, east of Greece, and north of Egypt. Because of its mild, pleasant climate, the island is not only an ideal place to view ancient architecture but also an idyllic venue in which to play golf.


Aphrodite Hills

So, if you love the game of golf, you’ll no doubt want to visit the 18-hole Aphrodite Hills Golf Course on Cyprus– a development which boasts five-star accommodations, magnificent villas and dining and shopping. In addition, the leisure estate features a spa and tennis facility. Golfers appreciate the tiered links and lush trees and greenery. Indeed, the course is named appropriately as Aphrodite, according to Greek mythology, was known as the goddess of love and beauty.

Set up some practice time on the course’s practice range or obtain some instruction from one of the course’s instructors. The clubhouse on the estate is a nice place to unwind too as the restaurant and bar both provide patrons with terraces that supply panoramic views of the grounds and the Mediterranean.


Another Popular Cyprus Course

Secret Valley, another popular 18-hole course, is located a little over 10 miles from the town of Paphos and, like the Aphrodite Hills Golf Course, provides plenty in the way of stunning scenery. Surrounded by majestic hills and trees, the course features a driving range and myriad putting greens. The restaurant in the clubhouse is situated so patrons can savor the landscape as well as the cuisine.


Master the Game of Golf at the Eléa Golf Links

Still yet another popular 18-hole course is the Eléa Golf Course on the Eléa Estate – a home to luxurious residences and a number of fine restaurants. The breath-taking terrain showcases limestone cliffs, groves of olive trees, and a rolling landscape. Golfers can practice their shots at the Eléa Golf Academy which provides golfers with a driving range and practice area.
