Glyfada Golf Club of Athens is located on the Saronic Gulf in the seaside town of Glyfada. Sometimes known as the Athens Golf Club, the Glyfada golf course opened for play in 1962 and Donald Harradine designed it. Robert Trent Jones Snr then carried out a major upgrade on the layout sixteen years later.

Wedged between the coast and the mountains, Glyfada was for many years the undisputed premier golf course in Greece and it played proud host to the 1979 World Cup of Golf, which the American pairing of Hale Irwin and John Mahaffey won by five shots from runners-up Scotland.

Glyfada is defined by the many umbrella pines lining the fairways and by the noise from nearby Athens airport. However, if you're looking for a game of golf while staying in the ancient city, then the 6,336-yard Glyfada will tick the box for you. With tight, doglegged holes encouraging accuracy rather than length, Glyfada's still a Greek course of some repute in a nation where sadly golf courses are few and far between.
