THE KANIKA GOLF HOLIDAYS

 

Cyprus is establishing itself as an attractive destination for golf holidays, especially among European golfers who are forced to take a break from the game during the winter months. On the contrary, the Cyprus autumn/winter climate is in fact ideal: pleasant temperatures, low rainfall and almost daily sunshine, which stretch the golfing season to over 10 months, excluding only the height of summer.

In addition to weather considerations, golfers coming to Cyprus appreciate the fundamental differences between courses in northern Europe and the Mediterranean features of the Cyprus terrain, which has been largely preserved to create charming courses dotted with olive trees and other typical trees and bushes. In addition, the diversity of the courses themselves offers players the opportunity to enjoy a whole range of new challenges at various levels. Although several licences have been granted for the development of new golf courses across the island, the currently existing options are concentrated in the district of Pafos (see below).

Situated on an award-winning sandy beach,
Alexander The Great Beach Hotel in Pafos is less than half an hour’s drive from the three golf clubs of Cyprus. For the benefit of our guests, we have negotiated special rates with all the golf clubs and can offer players attractive packages for a most enjoyable golf holiday experience in Cyprus.

APHRODITE HILLS GOLF CLUB

 

Aphrodite Hills' 18-hole championship golf course occupies two plateaus overlooking the Mediterranean, and is designed to harmonize with the natural environment.

The American-style course measures 6,232 metres and plays to a par 71. Here you will find a game that will challenge players of every level - and enchanting sunsets to end the day. The club also provides an academy with resident instructors, a practice range, pro shop, and a clubhouse with bar and restaurant.

Driving time from Alexander The Great Beach Hotel: 20 minutes

SECRET VALLEY GOLF CLUB

 

Set in a valley near Petra tou Romiou, the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, Secret Valley's 18-hole course winds its way through lush vegetation.

The course measures 5,094 metres and plays to a par 71. A Cypriot-style clubhouse, pro shop, restaurant and driving range complement the wind-sheltered course that is ideal in the cooler season.

Driving time from Alexander The Great Beach Hotel: 20 minutes

MINTHIS HILLS GOLF CLUB

 

The hilltop Minthis Hills golf course is set on the grounds of a 12th century monastery, at an altitude of 550m, with a delightful view across vineyards and the surrounding hills.

Created by Donald Steel, the 18-hole course measures 6,060 metres and plays to a par 72. With its excellent clubhouse, pro shop, driving range, outdoor swimming pool and tennis court, Minthis Hills offers golfers and their families an enjoyable day out.

Driving time from Alexander The Great Beach Hotel: 15 minutes

ELEA GOLF CLUB

 

The highly acclaimed Elea Golf Club, part of the prestigious Elea Estate, commands a breathtaking location alongside the shimmering eastern Mediterranean and the ancient town of Paphos.

The moment you set foot on the course you will immerse yourself in a sporting challenge that will test every inch of your game, masterminded by Sir Nick himself, arguably one of the greatest technicians and thinkers the world of golf has ever seen. Without question, a golfer’s golf course, Elea Golf Club requires a display of strategic mastery, precision and, maybe, the odd stroke of genius, if you are to stride up the 18th with victory in your grasp.

Elea Golf Club is located in Geroskipou, Paphos, only 7km from downtown Paphos and 8km from Paphos International Airport.

The 6,900-yard layout circulates through groves of mature carob and olive trees, while dramatic outcrops of weathered limestone strikingly contrast with the dark green fairways that, on many holes, are fringed by Mediterranean grasses and an abundance of wild herbs and native flora.

Note: All three courses offer individual coaching, golf carts and equipment for hire. A series of local tournaments are open to everyone. Further details are available from the reception at the Alexander The Great Beach Hotel, or from the clubs directly.
