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.
>>From March to November and sometimes beyond, there 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 and a warm welcome.
