Cyprus is the new jewel in the crown for golfers. It has only recently begun to make its way in the golf holiday market, but it is fast becoming a favourite with many travelers. This is due to an improvement in facilities and, of course, it's superb all year round climate.
Cyprus offers golfers challenging world class championship courses, top quality hotels, safety and warm hospitality. The island now boasts three championship courses. All three courses are situated in the south west of the island, close to the popular resort of Paphos. More courses are planned - Tersefanou near Larnaca has provisional planning, and Limni Golf Resorts near Polis where two world class courses are presently under construction.
Paphos is a fascinating resort with a pretty harbour, a wealth of nearby historic sites and good selection of reasonably priced bars and tavernas. Visitors from Britain feel at home here, as most of the population speak English, and driving is on the left hand side of the road.
From golden sandy beaches and rich flora to archaeological treasures and Byzantine monasteries, this is an island for golf for all seasons. Cyprus combines spectacular scenery with a fascinating history and basks in year round Eastern Mediterranean sunshine.
