GREECE

Greece is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, with its thousands of unique islands, numerous pristine beaches, myths, cheese and olive groves; it has endless attractions and activities. It has a lengthy history, and in fact, Greece is believed to be the birthplace of civilization. It is intriguing with its love for mysterious gods, legendary tales and firm traditions, which still stand firm.

Though it is the birthplace of the Olympic games, golfing is still a sport to be embraced in Greece. It has only seven 18-hole golf courses in the whole Greece mainland and its islands. Corfu and Rhodes have one course each; Crete has two while the rest of the courses are on the mainland. The Dunes course designed by Bernhard Langer and the Bay Course at Costa Novarino by the famous Robert Trent Junior have raised the standard of golfing in Greece. Golfers will enjoy golfing in some of the most scenic regions of Greece, and the best part is that you can combine a golfing break with any other kind of holiday, including beach or family holiday.(Image by Eirini Zag)
