As the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite,
the Goddess of love, the island
of Cyprus has many connotations
with the divine nature of beauty and desire,
not least when it comes to its stunning
natural heritage. Harnensing the potential
offered by this unique resource, the island’s
modern and exhilarating golfing greens, often
envelope Cyprus’ natural features, making
this one of the most impressive emerging
golfing destinations in the Mediterranean.
Named after the Goddess of love herself,
Aphrodite Hills Golf Club has become
famed as a world-class venue, offering the
pinnacle of challenges, including a dramatic
gorge running through the course. Eléa Golf
Club has proven to be a new star for the island,
originating from the tactically unique
conception of Sir Nick Faldo.
Minthis Hills is well-known for its unique,
undulating terrain, as well as narrow fairways,
while Secret Valley summons precision and
skill to navigate around the course.
In line with the Strategic Tourism Plan
of Cyprus, golfing tourism is an ongoing
development, which seeks to continuously
improve the island’s offering to the game’s
enthusiasts as well as promote the sport as
a fulfilling and challenging pastime. Each
course provides an academy and top-quality
facilities for golfers wishing to train and improve
their game, with club Pros at hand to
teach new skills. Exclusive lessons for juniors
as well as beginners are available.
Already a booming tourist destination with
year-round sunshine, Cyprus is the new jewel
in Europe for golfers seeking breaks in the
warmth of the eastern Mediterranean. It boasts
the longest golf playing season compared to all
other popular destinations in Europe.
