Minthis Hills golf course enjoys a historical location in Cyprus, situated in the grounds of a twelfth century monastery. Its tranquil setting and mesmerising mountain views provide the perfect backdrop for a challenging game with its fairways swathing through mature trees and water features.
At an altitude of 550m above sea level it’s a course for all seasons, enjoying cool breezes even during the summer.
Originally designed by Donald Steel in 1994, Minthis Hills has recently undergone extensive enhancement by Mackenzie & Ebert. Widely known and praised for their work on four out of the nine British Open Championship venues, Tom Mackenzie and Martin Ebert have also created 60 new projects in 16 countries during their architectural careers over the past 20 years.
The ancient gardens in which the course is set lend a unique flavour, with holes surrounded by grapevines, walnut, almond, and olive trees. Few places are so tranquil for a friendly game, being fun to play for all standards of player, with great variety between holes. Elevated tees invite everyone to “have a go”, yet narrow tree-lined fairways provide a challenge, with each shot requiring careful assessment.
The sporty short par four 12th hole is an example, where the green can be reached with a well struck drive, although danger lurks all along the left with the steep valley cascading away.
The Clubhouse at Minthis Hills is iconic, designed by world-renowned architects Woods Bagot. The impressive architecture has been complemented by designer interiors and commissioned sculptures providing an ideal social atmosphere.
In settings designed to inspire, Minthis Hills offers an array of dining experiences. The lounge, golf terrace and cocktail bar offer the perfect space for pre and post game drinks, while the restaurant transforms the finest local and international ingredients into culinary delights.
