The course, which is located just a stone’s throw from the hotel, was originally constructed in the late 1990s by the golf course architect David Mezzacone - he laid out 18 holes within a local nature reserve.
However the American duo of Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry were commissioned to re-design the layout for a reopening in 2009.
Today the course features many a water hazard, particularly on the back nine where five of the holes (10, 12 & 16 to 18) are routed around lakes. Watch out for the trio of closing par-4s, they are stroke indexes of 4, 8 and 2 respectively – so they can easily ruin a good score.
Acaya Golf Club held the first ever Acaya Open in 2010, and since then it has become a regular event on the European Challenge Tour – a testament to the quality of this wonderful golf course.
