Information about Cyprus

While most of Cyprus' new golf courses have fallen by the wayside, and the remaining ones are only just in the final planning stages, there's one signature golf venue which has been under construction since 2007.

Set on a hillside at Agia Marinouda village just outside Paphos is the Elea Golf Course, a lavish facility incorporating a championship course, driving ranges, golf academy, practice facilities, and much more.

Elea golf course is far ahead of its competitors

Although the planned expansion works at the Secret Valley golf course are not yet underway, and Cyprus' other new venues are still barely a twinkle in their developers' eyes, Agia Marinouda's golf course has been in operation since October 2010.

Running at 6,775 yards, and playing to a par 71, Elea's golf course is, in Nick Faldo's own words, "thoughtful rather than big hitting", and takes maximum advantage of the magnificent local rock formations found in this part of the island. The course itself, and the surrounding Elea Estate, with its forthcoming luxury residential development, are located in the gently sloping coastal hills, scarcely a couple of miles from the sands of Geroskipou's Riccos beach.

Blending perfectly into its surroundings

The weather in Cyprus is hot and sunny for most of the year, and as a result, water is quite a precious commodity in the Republic. Together, Faldo Design and its contractors Southern Golf have created a course which perfectly combines superb aesthetics with the island's ever present need to conserve water.

At Agia Marinouda you'll find a golf course where lush fairways smoothly blend into, as Southern Golf put it, "desert-style rough areas, striking limestone formations, and mature carob groves". Above all else though, this thoughtfully designed, and superbly executed course creates an intriguing playing experience which golfers of all levels will want to repeat time and again.

The Elea Golf Course by Nick Faldo
is the first signature venue in Cyprus

While announcements have been made that Tony Jacklin will be overseeing the remodelling of Secret Valley's course, whereas Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player will create a pair of signature courses at the Limni Golf Resort near Polis, the Elea Golf Course by Nick Faldo will be the first signature venue to actually be finished in Cyprus.

And, just to put things into context, it's generally agreed that Aphrodite Hills is the jewel in the crown of Cyprus' golf courses. But even disregarding Nick Faldo's superior course design for a moment, Agia Marinouda's 2,260m² clubouse makes Aphrodite Hills' clubouse look positively tiny. The same holds true for the resort's other facilities, which are in a league of their own, and include a highly exclusive Palmerston Boutique Hotel.

In fact, the Elea Golf Resort is about much more than just first class golf

Elea Golf Resort is also about First Class Living, as its many additional facilities clearly demonstrate.

As you'd expect from such a highly privileged project, you'll find a fully-fledged golf academy situated right next to the clubhouse. Incorporating a massive driving range, complete with an assortment of sand-traps and target-greens, a short-game practice facility for fine-tuning your chipping and pitching, and a truly majestic practice green, it's set to become the finest facility of its kind in Cyprus. Indeed, no expense has been spared, and the Elea golf academy also boasts the very latest computer-assisted swing-analysis instruments to tweak your game even further.

But the Elea Golf Resort is about more than fairways and greens; it also encompasses a sumptuous health and beauty spa, easily the equal of any other such facility on the island. Additionally, there's an extensive retail and leisure village with an emphasis on truly exclusive luxury.

Rounding off the golfing extravaganza are around two hundred exclusive villas, lining Agia Marinouda's golf course and beautifully finished to perfection. Set on large plots and enjoying superb views of both the course and the Mediterranean Sea below, these fabulous homes are amongst the most desirable golf properties in Cyprus. Situated closer to Elea Golf Resort's amazing clubhouse, around one hundred luxurious apartments are to be constructed in an elevated position with commanding vistas of the entire amazing complex.

Don't just play golf.... 'Live it' at Agia Marinouda's Golf Course and Country Club.

Golf in the Paphos Region

There can be no doubt that the Paphos district has been the heart of golf in Cyprus since the opening of Tsada golf course and country club back in 1994. Other courses at Secret Valley and Aphrodite Hills were soon to follow, and now, some sixteen years later, the forthcoming opening of the Agia Marinouda golf course firmly boosts the district's ambiton of becoming a top golfing destination.

And, with the Limni Golf Resort, with signature links by Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, currently being in the final stages prior to planning approval, the Paphos region will soon be home to five outstanding golfing facilities.
