Golfing on Crete

There is a beautiful golf course on Crete, built in 2003. It’s about a one hour drive from the hotel, 20 km East of Heraklion. The courses are 6,000 meters long for men and 5,200 meters long for women (international tournament standards). The course is tucked away within the rocky hills and you’re provided with an imposing view of the sea and mountains. Surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, some courses go diagonal to fall the hill and on one challenging hole a deep canyon has to be overcome. The facility also has a driving range for practice or golf lessons. The cost for three plays at 18 holes is 155 euros per person and five plays at 18 wholes is 249 euros per person. This price is year-round (price changes are possible).
