Golf in Greece: landscapes of unique beauty and high standard facilities will transform your holidays in Greece. Each golfing destination is exceptional. On Corfu, the golfing fairways are surrounded by a unique natural habitat for birds from herons to kingfishers as well as animals such as otters in the waters of the Nausica river. In Costa Navarino, two awarded courses are set in diverse topography with spectacular sea views. In Glyfada, pine, cypress, olive and fig trees flank the fairways.

Picture yourself a part of these beautiful scenes enjoying your favourite sport – golf. Golfing in Greece is a delightful experience, which has flourished in recent years with the addition of new, award-winning signature courses in new destinations such as Messinia as well as the renovation of the classic golfing haunts.
