The allure of teeing off amidst stunning natural surroundings, along with the opportunity to enjoy golf all-year-round in the island's excellent Mediterranean climate are just two of the factors that are seeing Cyprus emerge as a leading golfing destination - and attracting both amateur and professional sportsmen to the island and its internationally-acclaimed courses. Located in some of the most picturesque areas of Cyprus, the select handful of courses have been applauded for the way they are integrated into the breathtaking natural landscape of dramatic ravines, cliffs and sea vistas – backdrops that have been carefully used to enhance the game on each course.
Golf is a fairly new sport to Cyprus, with the first courses being popularized during the late 1990s. Over the last years, the Island has flourished with an array of beautiful courses offering exceptional 5 start facilities.
The heritage of the courses is pedigree, with some of the world’s most renowned golf course architects leaving their signature on the challenging courses they have designed on the island, from luxury golfing resorts to stand-alone greens.
The Cyprus Golf Federation (CGF) was established in the year 2000 with the objective of promoting and managing amateur golf on the island. The Federation is a member of the International Golf Federation (IGF) and the European Golf Association (EGA). The four courses open for play in Cyprus are all CGF members.
