Golfing in Greece
For many travelers, a trip to Greece includes bringing along more than just a suitcase. A set of golf clubs is a must have for avid golfers looking to experience new and different courses. There are several locations that offer the best golf in the area along with breathtaking views and an enjoyable round on the green. Consider checking out any one of the following courses located in Greece:
The Westin Resort Costa Navarino
As the first signature golf course in Greece, the Dunes Course is impressive to say the least. It makes up the best of everything that Greece has to offer. While there are seaside views to behold while taking a swing, there are also various dunes as well as olive groves along the way. The course is a par 72 and offers several starting points at each hole, allowing a golfer to choose the best location to begin a game.
The Bay Course is just down from the Dunes Course and was designed by Robert Trent Hones, Jr. Aside from the Bay Course being a par 71, there are lots of other differences between the two locations. Most golfers agree that it takes a little extra strategy to succeed and come out on top when it comes to the Bay Course.
Porto Carras Grand Resort
The view alone makes the courses at the Porto Carras Grand Resort in Northern Greece worth the visit. There are several different courses available, including the Olive Course that encompasses views of vineyards and as well as the Agean Sea. There is no doubt that players with a high standard for golf and its challenges will be completely comfortable out on the green.
Afandou Golf Course
When the time comes for a real challenge, many golfers head over to the Afandou Golf Course. The maintenance is kept up year round, making this a great location to play no matter what time a visit is planned or what the weather is like outside. There are several other services available at this golf course in Rhodes for golfers, including club rentals and caddy carts.
Crete Golf Club
Looking for a little bit of desert golfing while in Greece? The Crete Golf Club, located in Crete, offers something completely different from the other courses in the area. Despite the plethora or sand, there is no doubt that the views of the mountains will get the attention of golfers as they make their way through the course.
Hotel Porto Elounda Mare Golf Course
Also located in Crete, the Hotel Porto Elounda Mare Golf Course has only nine holes but players can go through the course twice to get the full experience and take advantage of what they learned the first time through. This is a course that will be enjoyable for everyone and one that requires less effort, planning, and strategy when compared to some of the other courses in Greece.
For those looking to find someone to sell my timeshare, consider what you want to do with the money that you make. Many sellers choose to take advantage of their windfall and some vacation time and head out on an excursion to Greece with golf clubs in hand.
