Holidays in Greece are ideal for everybody. Whether you are a watersports enthusiast, a sun worshipper, a history buff or a nature lover, Greece has it all. Even better, if you wish to combine sun vacation with a little golf. While the sport has recently gained some popularity, there are only eight golf courses spread out across the country. Nonetheless, here are the beautiful golf havens on offer.
Glyfada Golf Course
The first golf course in the country, the Glyfada course is located in the southern suburbs of Athens, often dubbed the Greek Hamptons. Opened in 1966, the Glyfada Golf Course is an 18-hole, par-72 championship golf course which often hosts international golf events as well as golf cultural awareness. Easily accessible by car or even public transport, the club also includes two tennis courts, a restaurant and bar, beside the main course and practice range areas. A perfect destination for golf lovers and their family and friends.

Costa Navarino – The Dunes Course
Peloponnese also has its set of golf courses. For a world-class golf experience, Costa Navarino is the answer. The Dunes Course is Greece’s first signature-designed golf course, which opened in 2010. Designed by none other than Bernhard Langer, two-time US Masters Champion, in collaboration with European Golf Design, the Dunes Course is located in an idyllic setting near the luxurious resorts. This 18-hole, par-72 course has been designed to form a links course with dunes to separate the holes near the sea. A favorite among golfers, the Dunes Course is definitely a must-see.
Porto Carras Golf Course
Designed by Geoffrey S. Cornish and William G. Robinson, the Porto Carras Golf Course was inaugurated in 1973 and renovated in 2003 by Roy Mc Rayis. The first golf course in Northern Greece, the Porto Carras is an 18-hole course situated in the seaside resort of Neos Marmaras in Halkidiki. Blessed with warm summers and mild winters, the golf course is open all year round. With its youth academy, the Porto Carras is perfect for all the family and provides a plethora of services and amenities for all.
