Two new 18-hole golf courses at Costa Navarino in Greece are set to enhance an already spectacular golfing destination when they open for play in the spring of 2022.
Designed by two-time Masters champion and Ryder Cup legend José Marίa Olazábal, and set above the coastline, the new golf holes will offer panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, the Bay of Navarino and the Ionian Sea. And recently, José Maria Olazábal returned to Costa Navarino to oversee the fast progress of the developments at Navarino Hills.
Olazábal’s signature golf courses will extend the world-class golf offering of Costa Navarino and further enhance a unique year-round destination blessed with an ideal climate, lush seaside landscape and direct access. Navarino Hills will also boost Costa Navarino’s position as one of the world’s most environmentally friendly golf destinations, complementing the signature golf courses The Dunes Course and The Bay Course.
With 4 golf courses, each with a different concept, from a more easy-to-play course for amateurs and leisure guests to more challenging courses for pros and veterans, Costa Navarino enhances the overall golf experience and furthers its standing among the top golf destinations in Europe.
Olazábal’s 20th-course construction is expected to open for play in Springtime 2022, establishing Costa Navarino as one of the few upscale golf destinations around the world which combine such characteristics.
Navarino Hills will be developed as a year-round integrated resort with alternative tourism elements featuring additional innovative tourism and recreation facilities, excellent golf, dedicated wellness and countryside activities, while highlighting the uniqueness of the area.
