The Crete Golf Club

The Golf Course

The Crete Golf Club

The Crete Golf Club has a lay-out that few visitors will ever forget. Golf Course architect, Bob Hunt,  has taken what was once an unkempt piece of rugged mountainside and transformed it into a verdant oasis surrounded by some of the most beautiful views in the whole of Europe.

The golf course itself is best described as a mountain-style lay-out, featuring expansive fairways hewn through rocks and ravines. Visitors soon realise that the emphasis is on accuracy, although the landing areas are generous enough to accommodate all but the most errant shots. All around the course, the golfer can enjoy stunning views, both of the mountains and the coastline some ten minutes drive away. It is a stunning backdrop to what will be a memorable day.
