European Sport Vacations - Golf In Cyprus
With hundreds of quality golf courses to choose from in Europe, Cyprus is one of the top favourites for golfers.
The Mediterranean island has the advantage of being one of the few places in the world that offer golfing as a year round sport. In other areas of the
world, tourism often slows during the colder winter months. Due to the location and year round mild climate of Cyprus, the island is becoming one of
the best places in the world for year round golfing and other tourist activity.
Golf courses, clubs and resorts on Cyprus range in difficulty from novice to professional level. The Cyprus Golf Federation (CGF) is golf's official ruling
body on the island. Five of the major resorts on Cyprus offer first class 18 hole golf courses. They offer special training areas for beginners, some in
the form of a golf academy. Aphrodite Hills Golf Club and Korineum Golf and Country Club both offer three-hole academy courses to accommodate
Aphrodite Hills Resort
The Aphrodite Hills Golf Course is named after the area it overlooks: the birthplace of the Goddess Aphrodite. Located near Paphos, where it
overlooks the Mediterranean, the Aphrodite Hills Golf Course was designed by Cabell Robinson and built in 2002. This 578 acre golf course
encompasses the resort, offering great views of the hotel and village centre. A dramatic ravine between two of the course's plateaus offers a unique
golfing opportunity. Surrounding the golf course is a protected forest.
Korineum Golf and Country Club
The Korineum Golf and Country Club is a private club. It was the first 18 hole golf course built on the northern part of Cyprus. The course offers great
views of the Mediterranean and the Five Finger Mountain Range. Located near Esentepe, the course consists of 18 holes, a driving range, Korineum
Golf Academy and a shop where golfers may purchase or rent equipment. The Club House houses a fitness centre, spa, massage parlour, hairdresser
and sauna, as well as executive meeting rooms, c
