Elea Estate Golf Club
Elea Estate Golf Course, Paphos, Cyprus – Designed by Sir Nick Faldo
The much anticipated opening of Cyprus’ and Paphos’ next championship standard golf course has arrived! Elea Estate, designed by Sir Nick Faldo, near Paphos airport is now open for play. The course has a challenging but very playable layout in immaculate condition with spectacular Sea views from most areas of the course. The clubhouse is something to behold, with massive presence and stature from the outside, and a real luxurious (and hospitable) atmosphere on the inside.
From arriving at the course and having your car parked by the caddymasters in the underground car park through to your round of golf and sumptuous food and cool drinks served in style, you cannot help but be overwhelmed by the experience at Elea Estate.
The course itself measures 6900 yards from the back (black) tees with 2-3 tees in front making golf at Elea playable for all. The driving range is inspiring with manicured grass bays hitting down to approximately 15 greens with the sea as the backdrop. There are 2 chipping greens, one with bunkers and a putting green all designed to hone your skills before or after your round.
Buggies and electric trolleys can be hired and the pro shop which has a great selection of designer labeled clothes embossed with the ‘Elea Estate’ logo.
The addition of ‘Elea Estate’ makes Paphos & Cyprus a much more viable option for golf holidaymakers with a good choice of courses available in the immediate area. (Aphrodite Hills, Secret Valley and Minthis Hills being the others).
Elea Estate Golf Course designed by Nick Faldo is well worth the visit.
