The Corfu Club's beautiful course has been praised by
many as one of the best kept in Europe. It was designed
by the famous Swiss based architect, Donald Harradine
and he has blended the natural resources of the lovely
Ropa Valley with man made hazards to make the course a
good test but a fair test. It as is enjoyable for the
scratch player as it is for the long handicap one. The
magnificent greens of Penncross Bent are considered to
be the finest in the Mediterranean; the treelined fairways
and the sandtraps combine with the several lakes and meandering
steams, to make an attractive picture against a backcloth
of high hills. A mod.ern irrigation system keeps the course
in profect condition at all times.

is warm sunshine and blue skies in Corfu but even in high
summer on the golf course there is almost always a cooling
breeze blowing in from the sea. Golf can also be played
during the very mild winter in Corfu so any time is golf
time. There are three sets of tees thus providing enjoyment
for all categories of players. The turf is very good so
it is easy to walk on and every hole on the course providers
infinite variety - and its own problems. Corfu ist a great
golf course and its fame is spreading rapidly as golfers
come from all over the world to test their skill at golf
and to enjoy an island which offers spectacular scenery,
fine hotels and private Apartments or Villas, good food
