Costa Navarino, in the Southwestern Peloponnese Greece, has been awarded the prestigious title of 2017 European Golf Resort of the Year at the IAGTO Awards ceremony held in Palma on 17th November 2016. The award of European Golf Resort of the Year is voted for by almost 640 specialist golf travel Tour Operators, who are each members of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators, and based in more than 61 countries worldwide.
Costa Navarino is the prime, sustainable destination in the Peloponnese, nestling in one of the most unspoiled and breathtaking landscapes in the meditteranean. Situated amongst olive groves and complemented by the azure Ionian Sea, the destination features two 18 Hole signature golf courses, “The Dunes Course” and “The Bay Course”. The Dunes Course, designed by Bernhard Langer, former US Masters champion and ex-captain of the European Ryder Cup team, together with European Golf Design, is set in diverse natural scenery, with spectacular sea and river views, where tall dunes divide a number of the holes adjacent to the golden beach. The Bay Course is designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr, with a layout offering panoramic seaside and mountain views, in addition to featuring holes that can be traced directly along the historic Bay of Navarino, providing an unforgettable golfing experience. Both golf courses have been accolated, as “Best Newcomers”, in 2014 and “Best Service” in 2015 by the organisation, “World of Leading Golf”.
With amplified accessibility and year-round mild temperatures (25C on average), Costa Navarino provides an easy-to-reach escape for all season vacations, as, apart from the two signature golf courses, it offers an extensive variety of activities, including two luxury five-star hotels, The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort and The Westin Resort Costa Navarino, the award-winning Anazoe Spa, a 4,000 sq.m spa & thalassotherapy centre, specially designed facilities for children, as well as a variety of gastronomy venues, sports, outdoor and cultural activities.
