The Corfu Club's beautiful course has been praised by many as one of the best kept in Europe. It was designed by the famous Swiss based architect, Donald Harradine and he has blended the natural resources of the lovely Ropa Valley including the river Nafsika (Odyseus was rescued by Princess Nafsika at its exit on Ermones beach), with man made hazards to make the course a good test but a fair test. It is as enjoyable for the scratch player as it is for the long handicap one.
The magnificent greens of Penncross Bent are considered to be the finest in the Mediterranean; the treelined fairways and the sandtraps combine with the several lakes and meandering steams, to make an attractive picture against a backcloth of high hills. The course has been extensively renovated, with major work carried out on the bunkers and an upgrade to the irrigation system, therefore keeping the course in perfect condition at all times.
From March to November and sometimes beyond, there is warm sunshine and blue skies in Corfu but even in high summer on the golf course there is almost always a cooling breeze blowing in from the sea. Golf can also be played during the very mild winter in Corfu so any time is golf time. There are three sets of tees thus providing enjoyment for all categories of players. The turf is very good so it is easy to walk on and every hole on the course provides infinite variety - and its own problems. Corfu is a great golf course and its fame is spreading rapidly as golfers come from all over the world to test their skill at golf and to enjoy an island which offers spectacular scenery, fine hotels, good food and a warm welcome.
The attractive looking clubhouse built of local stone has recently been refurnished and is not only impressive outside but charming and comfortable inside, with a lounge area - offering snooker and satelite TV, and a bright cheerful restaurant where appetizing snacks and meals are served at very reasonable prices. We can extend our catering to weddings and christenings as our own small church "St. Charalambos" is situated beautifully next to the clubhouse and putting green.
There are locker rooms, shower and changing facilities.
The professional's shop is well stocked with items of golf equipment and golf bags and golf clubs can be hired. The practice ground is particularly large and buckets of balls can be supplied to those wishing to indulge in serious practice. In front of the clubhouse there is a putting green.
The professional staff are on hand at all times to give lessons and to make all visitors feel very welcome making sure they thoroughly enjoy their Corfu Golfing Holidays and all that the beautiful island has to offer.Corfu Golf Club
