The Crete Golf Club

The Crete Golf club is a marvelous new addition to Europe’s rich reservoir of courses and it will soon be regarded as one of the finest tests in the whole of the southern Mediterranean.

golf in greece, crete golf clubThe Crete Golf Club is home to the first 18-hole golf course on the island of Crete, offering to golfers and visitors a challenging and enjoyable golf experience throughout the year. The course has been built in an exciting desert style design. Each hole has been individually sculptured to blend into the existing landscape.  Designed by Bob Hunt of PGA DC of Great Britain, this course offers dramatic views and truly tests every aspect of the golfer’s repertoire. The architects have made every effort to protect the environment. Many ecologically friendly features, such as modern water treatment and large untouched areas, are to be found.  This mountainous golf course, the most challenging in Greece, is meticulously maintained and compliments the typical landscape of Crete.

Continually breezy conditions allow play in the summer. As the mildest climate in the Mediterranean makes it suitable for play in all seasons, the course will be open all year round.

The use of battery-operated buggies insures a continuous quick pace in the game.
