The magnificent development at the Aphrodite Hills Resort is capped by designer Cabell B. Robinson's outstanding championship golf club. A painstaking five-year development programme was necessary to realise Robinson's vision, but the consensus is that it is worth the wait.
Since being awarded PGA National status in early 2017, it was later named as the European Golf Resort of the Year 2018 and the Best Golf Resort in Europe by IAGTO. The course will also host new back-to-back tournaments in 2020 with some of the biggest names in golf due to take part in the Cyprus Open and Cyprus Showdown, each carrying a prize fund of €1million.MORE ABOUT THE HOTEL

Spanning the contours of the landscape's two plateaus, Aphrodite Hills is carved through lakes, carob trees and delightful olive groves, all of which are part of its immediate position among the elite of European golf. Aphrodite Hills golf club, the PGA National hosted the prestigious PGA Europro Tour Championship in 2010 and will host back to back tournaments for the European Tour in 2020. However, it is essentially a resort course, and as such the variety of tees ensures that this course also remains playable for the average visitor.
The course spans the magnificent cliff-tops to the south of Paphos Cyprus and affords incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea. Robinson has also used this landscape to create a number of awe-inspiring holes; the most notable are the short 7th, at the foot of a gaping ravine, and the nerve-jangling island green at the long closing hole.
This superb golf course does justice to both the 5* quality and the natural beauty that are the trademarks of the resort, and should ensure a truly memorable golf holiday at Aphrodite Hills.
