The Crete Golf Club is a championship golf course - the only 18-hole golf course on the island of Crete and one of the most impressive golf courses of the Mediterranean, which holds a unique challenge and a pleasant experience for both golf players and visitors all year round.
The golf course has been built to international PGA standards by architect Bob Hunt, a member of the English PGA. Each hole has been constructed separately and in harmony with the surrounding landscape, providing panoramic views of both the mountains of Crete and the Aegean Sea.
The Crete Golf Club has a mountain-style layout, it is meticulously maintained and at the same time it provides an ideal venue for international golf tournaments. On 26 - 28 October 2012 it hosted the Crete Ladies Open LET Access Series golf event and it has also hosted the EGA Mens’ Challenge Trophy with great success in July 2008, while for 3 consecutive years it hosted the Aegean Airlines Pro-Am.
The standard of service at Crete Golf Club is exemplary and adds a great deal to what is already a special experience.
The climate in the area is very mild all year round: The altitude ensures a light, cool breeze in high summer, making the game of golf very pleasant, while in winter there is very little rainfall and the average temperature is between 15 – 20°C that rarely goes below 10°C on the coldest day.
