Golf holidays in Greece

Greece

The Peloponnese covers an area of some 8,320 square miles and constitutes the southernmost part of mainland Greece. The peninsula has a mountainous interior and a very rugged coastline, with Mount Taygetus its highest point at 2,409 m. The scenery is spectacular and it really is a wonderful hideaway venue for a golfing holiday thanks to a superb development by Starwood Hotels and the Westin and Romanos Resorts and 2 classic golf designs of the Dunes and the Bay which are laid out right next to the ocean. A holiday to the Peloponnese will be one of the most rewarding especially from May to September when the weather is wonderful.

Bay Course:Just a stones throw away from Navarino Dunes at the Navarino Bay development lies the Bay course which offers a different, but equally enjoyable, test to the Dunes course. This 6,299 yard par 71 places an emphasis on straight hitting and course management and it is no surprise that it is an extremely enjoyable golf course as it was designed by the revered architect Robert Trent Jones Jr. Multiple tee positions makes the course accessible for golfers of all abilities who will no doubt be inspired by the sweeping views of the coast and the nearby mountains.
