The 18-hole Dunes&Course, located at the Resort and designed by Bernhard Langer, is set in a landscape of diverse topography with spectacular sea and river views; incorporating some links style features in areas closest to the sea, with tall dunes dividing some of the holes adjacent to the golden beach. Parts of the course venture into olive and fruit groves, while some holes run along a small river that 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 18hole Bay&Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., is situated at Navarino Bay. This seaside course offers sublime sea views and two holes playing along the historic bay. The course meanders through three distinct natural environments: the Seaside, Canyon and Grove holes provide striking contrasts that create a dramatic and memorable round.
Both courses have a golf academy featuring a state of theart teaching center and are managed by Troon Golf, the world’s leading highend golf development, marketing and Management Company.
