The Dunes Course

Par: 71

Length: 6018m


Course designer: Bernhard Langer

The Dunes Course

The Dunes Course ventures into olive groves and along a small river, whilst links-style features add to its unique playability.

Much of the contouring mirrors the rugged outlines of the distant mountains. Close to the south, there is a links-like feel with tall dunes separating the holes and steep faced bunkers; further inland, it reflects a more typically Greek landscape of olive and citrus groves, and there are large undulating greens and wide fairways.

The Bay Course

Par: 71

Length: 5760m


Course designer: Robert Trent Jones Jr.

The Bay Course

Although shorter than the nearby Dunes Course, The Bay course places a greater emphasis on strategic play and position. golf. The Seaside, Canyon, and Grove holes will provide striking contrasts that create a dramatic and memorable golf round. The imaginative layout offers panoramic seaside and mountain views, including several holes that play directly along the sea and two directly overlooking the historic bay of Navarino.

The Bay Course offers holes interchanging between three distinct environments of seaside, canyon and grove views, creating striking contrasts, blending seamlessly into the natural environment. The grove holes take in the olive uees dating centuries back.

Robert Trent Jones Jr. commented "The Bay Course is sculpted out of the earth and rock of Greek soil, much like the marble statues of the ancients. Those deities were noble and graceful, and the golf course now reflects the same sense of beauty. This golf experience will last the test of time, to be loved and enjoyed through all the senses by those who come to play the golf course".
