Elea Estate Golf Course
The Elea Estate course is Nick Faldo’s first foray into Cypriot course design, but has already won a huge number of fans. The course boasts stunning Mediterranean views which will enchant any lover of European golf. Although the course was only opened in 2010, it has already rocketed to the top of many golfers’ lists in Cyprus.
Using modern course design techniques, this luxury course has been built so that it sits harmoniously within the natural Cypriot landscape. Mature native trees such as carob and olive stand along the edges of the fairways. Over 450 trees were transplanted around the course to help to maintain the gorgeous natural environment.
True to any Faldo course, there are an abundance of bunkers which need to be circumnavigated by anyone wishing to make par. The 4th and 17th holes are particularly well known for their sandy hazards. The green of the 17th is given an island-like feel by strategically placed bunkers and areas of native scrub.
If you wish to make par on the Elea Estate course you will need to be able to blend skill, strategy and precision. The natural hazards and the constructed bunkers mean that careful shot placement is absolutely essential on every hole. Being able to read the conditions properly is vital for any golfer who wants to succeed. Regardless of your final score, you will have fun trying to unpick this challenging course.
The stunning clubhouse offers fantastic facilities to all visitors by blending indoor and outdoor spaces to maximum effect. There are several different restaurants and bars within the clubhouse, so it will always be possible to find something that caters to your needs. The onsite Golf Academy attempts to blend art with science to give users uniquely tailored expertise to improve their game. A Golf Shop is also open to allow you to pick up new gear and essential items.
