Corfu Golf Club
The beautiful golf course of Corfu has been characterized by many as one of the best hidden secrets in Europe. The Corfu Golf Club course, located only 14km away from Corfu town, was designed by the famous Swiss architect Donald Harradine, who combined the natural beauty of the Ropa Valley with his own interventions in a harmonious way, to create a course pleasant for both advanced and beginner players.
Today, it is a magical place with tree groves around the fairways, ponds, streams and a background of the surrounding hills. It is a habitat filled with animals and birds (Terrapin,Otter,Carp,Kingfisher,Heron,Egret,Hoopoe). In front of the 1st tee there flows the river of Navsica, the beautiful Corfiot princess who rescued Odysseus when he shipwrecked at its mouth, a few meters away, at Ermones beach.
Golf can be played there throughout the year, as the winter is mild. There are four sets of tees for all categories of players. The course is excellent and easy to walk while every hole offers endless variety as well as a challenge.
