Where golf overlooks Aphrodite's birth place

With the opening of Aphrodite Hills Golf Club, Cyprus is becoming a new destination for golfers. Out of a course near Larnaka which is always requisitioned for the British Royal Forces, there were still two eighteen hole golf courses on the island, Tsada Golf Club and Secret Valley Golf Club, but the new one is a great championship course which will attract, and satisfy the most blasé golf trotters.

Aphrodite Hills Golf Club has been designed by the world-renowned Cabell Robinson. The course has been carved out of a forest of carob and olive trees on two high plateaus divided by a ravine and overlooking the legendary sea-birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite. The course is 6,665 meters long and is a par 71 with a double ended practice range, short game practice facilities and golf academy.

Each hole has five sets of tee markers authorizing international tournaments as well as more enjoyable course for the average player. Hole 7 is one of the most spectacular par 3s: it plays steeply downhill across the canyon to a large undulating green nestled in a grove of olive trees. At 150 meters over, the tee shot is complicated by the 30m elevation. The hole 3 is another signature hole: it needs, from the back tee, a 200m carry over the canyon… It's shorter from the other tee boxes.

But the most impressive on this course are the numerous places where one can overlook the coast and the Mediterranean blue sea. It is a really good consolation for bad shots.

Aphrodite Hills includes a large club-house with pro-shop, locker rooms, bar and restaurant on terraces with spectacular views. Refreshment facilities are provided around the course. Golf carts are quasi obligatory due to certain difficulties to walk over the canyon.
