Golf Courses in Greece

THE DUNES COURSE

THE WESTIN RESORT, COSTA NAVARINO

Former Ryder Cup Captain and US Masters Champion Bernhard Langer, in association with European Golf Design, is the architect of the first 18-hole signature designed golf course in Greece.

Primarily a resort course, the variety of tee placements on offer means that it will be hugely enjoyable for the casual golfer whilst at the same time an exhilarating challenge for the best players. Measuring a full 6,018 meters from the championship tees down to just under 5,000 meters from the front, the playing areas are generously wide and cater for the occasionally breezy conditions so close to the sea.

THE BAY COURSE

THE WESTIN RESORT, COSTA NAVARINO

Just a few minutes from Navarino Dunes, at the Navarino Bay development, the Bay Course offers an alternative set of challenges and choices in a quite different setting. Designed by leading American architect Robert Trent Jones Jr., it plays a little shorter than the Dunes Course at 5,760metres from the back tees. The par 71 course places a slightly greater emphasis on strategic play and positional golf. The Seaside, Canyon, and Grove holes provide striking contrasts that create a dramatic and memorable golf round. The course  plays to a par of 71 from a variety of lengths designed to test the golfing skills of amateurs and pros alike.
