Aphrodite Hills becomes the PGA National, Cyprus

Aphrodite Hills

Aphrodite Hills Resort has officially reopened under its new guise of Aphrodite Hills PGA National, Cyprus, after the completion of a €4m upgrade.

The Cabell Robinson-designed 6,877m course, which is located in the Paphos area and first opened in 2002, has attained the highest standard recognition in golf upon the significant enhancement of the layout – with an entire rebuild of the greens and bunkers.

Visually spectacular, the course is built on two plateaux, separated by a dramatic ravine with outstanding views over the Mediterranean, with the staggering 130-metre gorge dividing tees at the seventh hole providing an enticing challenge for all players.

Golf Director at Aphrodite Hills Resort, Andrew Darker, said: “For more than 15 years, Aphrodite Hills has created a strong reputation as both a golf course and a state-of-the-art resort.

“We believe that collaboration with PGA will further develop our profile in the conscience of golfers and the thousands of visitors hosted daily throughout the year.”

PGA Chief Executive, Robert Maxfield, added: “We are pleased that Aphrodite Hills has become the PGA National, Cyprus, which exalts the quality of the remarkable and newly renovated golf course, as well as the excellent five-star leisure facilities.

“We are proud to promote PGA National, Cyprus alongside its other national facilities in Europe, further strengthening PGA’s global reputation.”

Aphrodite Hills Resort is one of the highest regarded integrated resorts in Europe. Nestled in the midst of a protected forest and views of the Mediterranean Sea, the resort covers 234 hectares of land, 92% of which is pure indigenous plantation, greenery and landscaping.

Meanwhile, the renovation of the clubhouse facilities and the creation of a Members’ Lounge is well on schedule and will open in the months to follow.
