Golf in Crete Dec 16

The Crete Golf Club is situated at Hersonissos, near Heraklion, the capital of Crete, and it’s the first full 18-hole golf course to have been built on this beautiful Greek Island. The 6430-yard, par 71-desert style course has two loops of nine, which seamlessly blend into the existing landscape. The slopes, visible rocky ground, groundcover pants and absence of trees provide a character, which is easily identifiable as Crete.

Each hole has a selectlon of 4 tee beds, providing a challenge for all golfers whatever their standards. Where the scratch golfer will fInd the course a tough enough test from the back tee, the novice will find the forward tees more suited to their game. For the farways, we have selected Paspalum as the grass type. This requires the minimum amount of water whist providing the maximum drought resistance. Tifdwarf will be used on the greens where a finer turfgrass is needed.
