Golf Course
“This golf club of Glyfada is the oldest in Greece, founded in a coastal landscape of dunes, pines and a natural creek in 1962. This 18-hole course was landscaped by the feted architect David Harradine, and it was later remodelled by another famous designer Robert Trent Jones in 1978. Green fees are pretty reasonable considering this heritage, with 18 holes costing €50.00, and nine holes at half that price. The fairways are fringed by fig, olive, cypress and pine trees and your round will be accompanied by vistas of the sea, Mount Hymettus and the little church of St Dimitrios at the 10th.”
