Golf In Cyprus
Golf and Golf Courses
Golf is relatively new to Cyprus but with the mild winter climate and plenty of sunshine, golf is set to take off in Cyprus over the coming years with plans to be the number one golfing destination on the Mediterranean.
The courses close to Paphos are about 110 km away and are accessible by the main motorway route and take about 1-2 hours to reach.

This award-winning 18-hole golf course in Paphos opened in 2002 and is the newest golf course in Cyprus- 6299 metres – par 71/72.
Green fees cost between €105 – €150 for 18 holes – Aphrodite Hills Golf Course website.

Minthis Hills Golf Course
The Minthis Hills golf course is set on the grounds of 12th century monastery in the hills. A par 72 measuring 6060 metres. Being 500m above sea level usually means a cool breeze during the hot summer months.

Vikla Golf Course and Country Club
This 18 hole golf course is near the village of Vikla, about 20km from Limassol and is the closest golf course to the villa. 5250 yards and a par 72, this golf course is open to the public, and you don’t need a handicap to play. The golf course, with its country club, is ideal for families. You get to play a round of golf while the family can sit by the pool and enjoy some Cypriot hospitality. Probably not the best golf course for real enthusiasts.
You can play all day for €30 and club hire is €7 including a golf trolley – Vikla Golf Course website.
