This is a tough review to write; as I refer to my notes from during the round it is difficult to fault the experience but in all honesty it can only be a 4-ball rating from me. The hotel, the restaurants and all of the après golf is first class and I defy anyone not to have a wonderful time here but as a golf course I am remembering the dramatic setting more than the holes. The first couple of holes are pretty
straight forward, then the first piece of drama;- a 1000 metre trek from the 2nd green to the 3rd tee – nice par-5 when you get there though. More drama after the par-5 6th… a very tricky buggy drive down the side of the ravine (ultra slow is the order of the day) to the par-3 7th – A spectacular hole example of a tee, a ravine with a 100 metre drop needing a mid-iron to carry, then the green, a fun hole to play that is for sure. The 8th is another that is pleasing on the eye, especially at the green. On the back nine, I enjoyed the short par-4 14th (probably as it suits my left to right shot!) – also the 18th is very good, a reachable par-5 in two but water short and front of the green adds to the difficulty. All in all I really enjoyed my day here (despite the very slow greens) and I would love to return again but this is based on the whole day and experience rather than just the course – this certainly is holiday/resort golf but done very well . As a side note, there is a fair bit of investment in Cypriot golf at present (new courses and re-designs) which is great news for the island.
