Open since May 2010, the impressive seaside The Dunes Course is the first signature golf course in Greece, designed by former US Masters Champion and Ryder Cup Captain Bernhard Langer in association with European Golf Design.
The Dunes Course was maintained for a full year prior to opening in order to ensure its pristine condition. Troon Golf, the world's leading luxury-brand golf management company, operates The Dunes Course.
This championship course, set in a landscape of diverse topography with spectacular sea and river views, incorporates some links-style features in areas closest to the sea. Parts of the course venture into olive and fruit groves, while some holes run along a small river - the Sellas - which meanders through the site. Combined with large undulating greens, wide fairways and steep-faced pot bunkers, the links element of the course adds to its unique style and playability.
The Dunes Course has been designed to provide an exciting challenge for all golfers. Each of the 18 holes has multiple sets of tees to allow players to select the course length that best suits their game. The course measures 6,018 meters (6,581 yards) from the back tees with a par of 71. Generously wide fairways and large greens make good targets to be appreciated by most golfers.
Much of the course has been crafted to reflect the rugged outlines of the distant mountains. As you move further inland, the course evolves, its character softening to fit with the surroundings of olive and citrus groves. In season, players are welcome to sample the ripe fruit from the trees around the course at their leisure.

Open since October 2011, the 18-hole seaside Bay Course at Navarino Bay, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, provides both a fun experience and a challenging test for golfers of all levels. Troon Golf, the world's leading luxury-brand golf management company, also operates The Bay Course.
With the majority of tees offering sublime sea views and two holes playing along the historic Bay of Navarino, the course meanders through three distinct natural landscapes. The Seaside, Canyon, and Grove holes provide striking contrasts that create a dramatic and memorable golf round.
Seaside: Golfers experience four different Seaside greens framed by a scenic backdrop of the tranquil waters of the Bay of Navarino. The bay's natural beauty is showcased on hole #4, a short and strategic par 4 directly fronting the bay with the town of Pylos visible in the background. This challenging hole offers tremendous visual appeal.
Canyon: On The Bay Course's numerous Canyon holes, golfers play from elevated tees and pursue their drives into and through box canyons as the course switches inland from the sea. These holes feel more intimate than the Seaside holes and offer very different views and a greater variety of strategic options.
Grove: More than 1,000 mature olive trees - some more than 500 years old - were saved during the construction of the course and transplanted along the perimeter. The Grove holes meander through this treed landscape, providing distinctive mountain views in striking contrast to the Seaside and Canyon holes.
The golf course plays to a par of 71 from a variety of lengths designed to challenge golfers of various skill levels. Crafted across natural terrain, the layout offers panoramic seaside and mountain views in addition to having several holes that play directly along the sea, providing an unforgettable golfing experience. Moreover, players are welcome to sample the ripe fruit from the trees around the course at their leisure. Bay Course is a Buggy only course.
