Golf in Greece & Cyprus
Aphrodite Hills Golf Course
The first ever leisure and golf development of its kind in Cyprus, Aphrodite Hills Resort is home to a magnificent 18-hole championship golf course, spreading over 6,299 metres and overlooking the site where Aphrodite, the goddess of love, is said to have emerged from the sea. The golf course also has a dedicated 3-hole Golf Academy and magnificent Clubhouse.
This award-winning golf course was officially opened in 2002 and was designed by the acclaimed architect, Cabell Robinson. Robinson believes Aphrodite Hills to be the perfect mix of challenging pot bunkers, manicured fairways of lush Bermuda grass and generous tiered greens. Visually spectacular, the course expands through indigenous olive and carob trees and is built on two plateaux separated by a dramatic ravine with outstanding views over the Mediterranean. A 130 metre gorge dividing tees at the par 3, the 7th hole is the perfect opportunity to put your skills to the test.
Beginners and experienced players of all abilities are encouraged to learn and improve their game at the Aphrodite Hills 3-hole Golf Academy, where a team of resident PGA qualified golf professionals equipped with a 'full video swing analysis system' can provide the very best one-on-one tuition.
With a large, double-ended driving range, a short game area with a large pitching and chipping green and a 3-hole Academy course, Aphrodite Hills Golf provides the perfect environment for learning golf before progressing to the full course.

Secret Valley Golf Course
The aptly named Secret Valley Golf Course is tucked away in a superb valley just 18 kilometres east of Pafos (Paphos) near “Petra tou Romiou”, the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the mythical goddess of love. It is set in scenic hills surrounded by mature trees and dramatic rock formations offering panoramic views.
The course plays to a par 71 and measures 5.989 metres. The front nine offers four nice holes for warming up, two birdie opportunities and an easy dog leg. The back nine plays longer than the first nine and the challenge starts immediately. Practice facilities include putting greens, chipping areas, fairway bunkers and a large driving range.
The clubhouse has recently been refurbished to the highest standards and has a well-stocked sports shop with equipment for sale or hire, locker rooms, bars and a restaurant with verandas overlooking the artificial lakes and the golf course.
