Aphrodite Hills is home to one of the best championship courses in Cyprus. Stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and surrounding hills, and dramatic elevation changes on the course, all play their part on this testing Cabell Robinson design.
Visually spectacular and built on two plateaux separated by a dramatic ravine, the course winds through indigenous olive and carob trees, with many spectacular views along the way. Villa-style housing flanks some holes, but not to detract from the memorable golfing experience the layout offers. Plenty of golfing challenge, stylish bunkering, huge greens, impressive elevation changes and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted design.
Pick of the holes: among several dramatic holes, the par-3 7th with a deep ravine separating the tee box and a huge square green, will linger long in the memory. The hole can be set-up o tplay anywhere between 100 yards and 230 yards.

The Aphrodite Hills resort is uniquely located on two plateaux, divided by a dramatic ravine. Close by is Petra tou Romiou, the exact spot where Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure and passion, is said to have emerged from the sea. In Roman mythology, her counterpart is Venus. Most of the tales of Greek Aphrodite and Roman Venus are identical.
