Golf club

The Corfu Club`s beautiful course has been praised by many as one of golf`s best kept secrets in Europe.

 

The idea came from the Prime Minister and President of the Greek Republic Konstantinos Karamanlis. His shared his dream to his best friend Charalambos Tsaousoglou who implemented it.

 

The field was designed by the famous Swiss based architect, Donald Harradine and he has blended the natural resources of the lovely Ropa Valley including the river of Nafsika (Odyseus was rescued by Princess Nafsika at its exit on Ermones beach), with man made hazards to make the course a good but fair test. It is as enjoyable for the scratch player as it is for the long handicap one.

 

Today is a magic place with seed trees around the fairways, lakes, streams having as a background surrounding hills.

It Is filled with animals and birds (kingfishers, herons, otters, fish).

In front of the first tee the Nausica’s river is flowing, she was the beautiful Corfiot princess who was rescued by Odysseus when he wrecked at the Ermones’s beach.

 

From March to November and sometimes beyond, there is warm sunshine and blue skies in Corfu but even in high summer on the golf course there is almost always a cooling breeze blowing in from the sea. Golf is also played throughout the winter in Corfu, so anytime is golf time! There are three sets of tees thus providing enjoyment for all categories of players. The turf is very good and easy to walk on and every hole on the course provides infinite variety - and it`sown problems. Corfu is a great golf course and it`s fame is spreading rapidly as golfers come from all over the world to test their skill at golf and to enjoy an island which offers spectacular scenery, Corfu Palace, good food and a warm welcome.

 

The course is open 7 days a week. If you are interested to play cricket in Corfu, please click here
