Golf in Cyprus
With par facilities in beautiful surroundings, Pafos is the latest destination on the golfing map, a place where you can play the game all year round.
There are four top class golf courses in the Pafos region, while a few others currently under construction. Situated in peaceful surroundings amidst landscaped hills with spectacular views, these offer luxury villas or apartments for rent or sale, clubhouses, shops, hotels and all the necessary facilities. They are far from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist resorts, yet near enough for easy access.
Aphrodite Hills is an award winning integrated golf, leisure and real estate development. It is an 18-hole championship standard golf course, has a double ended 350m practice range, 4 target greens with bunkers, short game practise facilities, 3 academy holes, two residential professional golf instructors, a large clubhouse with a bar and restaurant and terraces overlooking the green. It features one of the most spectacular par 3s in Europe, which can be found on the 7th hole. A signature hole, it plays steeply down across a canyon onto a large green nestled in a grove of olive trees.
