Costa Navarino is relatively new when it comes to golf resorts, but it quickly has become a favourite amongst our loyal customers and avid YGT staff golfers. It is located near the town of Pylos in Greece and is home to two stunning championship golf courses, a superb spa and 2 luxury 5* resorts. There is an excellent array of restaurants and bars along with plenty of activities to do away from the courses. The resorts are set right on the Mediterranean Sea and the views are simply spectacular, across the golf courses and from the resorts.
Home to Two Championship golf courses
Costa Navarino is home to TWO stunning championship golf courses, that are amongst the very best in the world, The Bay Course and The Dunes Course. Our very own YGT Rory was lucky enough to visit Costa Navarino last year along Youtubers Mark Crossfield. Take a look at the video below to see how they got on.
Both courses offer unique tests of golf and are a challenge even for the lower handicappers who head to Costa Navarino. The scenery is spectacular and both courses offer incredible views of the sea and the natural beauty. Take a look at the images below to see how beautiful Costa Navarino really is.
The Dunes Course
The Dunes Course was designed by former Ryder Cup Captain and Masters Champion Bernhard Langer along with the support of European Tour design. The Championship Golf Course offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea and offers a links-style feel along with tall dunes, which divide some of the holes apart.
