Corfu Golf Club in Corfu
The mild winter temperatures create a heavenly environment to enjoy golf in “one of the greatest courses in Europe”, as classified by the Encyclopedia of Golf, and “one of golf's best kept secrets’’ by Golf Monthly Magazine.
Donald Harradine, the famous golf architect, designed Corfu Golf Club’s course in 1969, combining the natural resources of the Ropa Valley with the man made water hazards. The mature 18-hole course includes the river, where the myth tells that Odysseus was rescued by Princess Nafsika at its exit on Ermones beach (only 900m away). The excellent condition of the greens, the tree lined fairways and the bunkers together with the 7 lakes create a unique golf course for the professional or the amateur golf player.
At the Club House, built of local stone, visitors can enjoy traditional dishes and beverages by one of the best chef’s on the island at the golf club’s restaurant. The club’s pro shop gives the opportunity to rent golf clubs, buy equipment and some memorabilia, too. The professional staff gives lessons and makes sure all visitors enjoy their golfing holidays to the utmost.
