Untouched golf destination North Cyprus
Reviewed June 27, 2012
The 18-hole championship golf course "Korinuem Golf & Country Resort" in North Cyprus is about 15 minutes, the capital of Girne. Here the world is in a good mood Mediterranean weather, nearly 41 degrees (in the square) in June still in order.
On 65 acres of untreated stocked with hundreds of olive trees and pine land, breathtaking views of the mountains, the sea and a tricky landscaped course is a real challenge. The designer "David Hemstock" has doglegs, bunkers and undulating greens on holes created so clever that even low handicappers are required powerful. Yellow (Men) 72 5646 m. Red (Women) 72 4790 m. The front 9 are kept quite flat. In contrast, the back 9 are mostly uphill and the greens are always placed on top towards the sea.
Water is available only to 2 lanes on 18 holes.
The fairways are playing in an excellent condition and a real pleasure. The greens were aerifiziert, therefore, have been difficult putts. However, the conditions are the same for all golfers. Especially hole 13, a par 3 Yellow 177m - 151m-red here is advisable to keep to the right towards the rock and let the ball roll then purely on the green. The hole is marked by obstacles right out line and bricks and left a large and wide gorge ditch which it is to play and infamous. Here Bäller are often lost.
On the web 14 Par 4 421 meters with the most birdies are played - a long long drive down the canyon with the second blow to the aprons end and onto the green. He beautiful hole.
The 17th hole, a par 3 Yellow 136m - 115m red are specifically and strategically to golf exactly. Felt 50m longer hole, but it was measured by GPS from the air and the crossroad remains the specified length. Spilene uphill and put the flag back also a challenge that remains in the memory. Here we recommend at least 1 club to beat. Clear advantage is the golfer who knows the place.
Tee 9 and 18 provide a clear overview of the fantastic piece of land to the club house and the sea.
The Pro Shop to get to rent clubs, trolley and buggy, and well-equipped textile offer. Is really comfortable to have, that's all Fusnähe. The range with 33 tees even has a bar attached. The 86 rooms of this boutique hotel are furnished exclusive (depending on availability), dining options Mediterranean, fresh and varied. Especially delicious is the dessert offerings. The service is exceptionally friendly, fast and courteous. The staff speak several languages and are helpful with questions.
The gym and spa area is nicely furnished. Besides golf, day trips by boat along the coast to enjoy bike rides, animal attractions such as the Schildkrötenschlüpfung (depending on season). Northern Cyprus is located between Africa and Europe, the many birds (about 350 species unertschiedliche) there are or skim resident. Culturally monasteries such as Bellapais, gorgeous locks are exploring ways in Girne and varied beach.
October to May is the peak season for golfers here.
Each time and very much like I'm going to play there again.

We were there from 10:11.17:11:11 until the Korineum ago and found a well prepared course with great design, spectacular views and challenging play. It makes a lot of fun to play this course, it is not easy, but still fair. The special highlight in the truest sense of the word is track 14 (Vertigo), a par 5 with 421m length of yellow. Man hitting from the highest point on down into the valley and then a dogleg left can be in good position to attack the green, a beautiful par is always there. Even the ladies tee which is about 10m deep joy is announced. The four par 3 tracks, twice over small ravines with increased underlying greens (2 & 13) are just great. The tracks are all par playable, you should not like the many olive trees, shrubs and pine forget that line the entire course and also sometimes stand in the way middle and require a special impact. We had the place played 5 times and it was never boring, you simply looking forward to the new game.
The training facilities at the resort are excellent, the Academy has 34 tee boxes that are partially covered with sea view. What we found really great for upload, the Practice course (Par5, Par3 Par4) was representing well what awaits one on the round.
After the round is the most beautiful place on the clubhouse terrace with a drink and a tasty snack with views of the grounds and the ocean. The staff is very friendly and fixed.
We had booked the new room (Elite Rooms) at the club and were very satisfied, great, spotlessly clean and very well decorated.
The restaurant food is good and varied, the highlight was always the dessert buffet and a sin.
You should definitely book more HP.
The only negative for us was the new club restaurant, which although has a tasteful, but still retains the charm of a train station restaurant. When has become less and less number of guests during the week they came in a very large room right before and lost of comfort you could not talk, shame really.

A top spot!

Mild climate and pristine nature archaic form the fine ingredients for this plant in a class, a secret among connoisseurs.
The teppfichfeinen fairways run through a shady forest of pine and olive trees, while providing fantastic views of the Mediterranean Sea and the legendary Besparmak Mountains. However, one should not be too distracted, because the super-maintained facility requires extreme precision. This is especially true for long hitters, their balls there can easily get lost in a deep gorge once. But that should not spoil the good mood, because the chic clubhouse will be reimbursed for the best. This place is one of my personal darlings and well worth the journey.

Golfing with spectacular views
Reviewed July 10, 2010
On two occasions we spent a week at the Golf Residence Korineum and played the wonderful golf course every day.
During our first stay in February it rained strong.
The par 72, with a length of 6232 m (from white), as might be expected after all the heavy rain in a rather soggy condition, the bunkers are more water hazards and the greens are in pretty bad condition.
And the best: Watering is computer controlled. But apparently no one here can change the controller... because even after the massive rainfall in recent days, which are not common in this form is irrigated bandwagon...
But what upset us the puddles in which we enjoy the views on every hole. The sea shines Us turquoise blue counter and seems close, the Five Finger Mountain watches over the greens and the individual holes have interesting names such as Down & Around, which applies to the whole place, as we have partly to do with very beautiful slopes, particularly on the back nine.
And we are among the golfers carry their bag and thus come quite at our second stay in April at about 30 degrees to sweat... and our limits.
But each tee with spectacular views compensates us. This time the place is in an excellent condition.
And the good, on request also very individual kitchen of the hotel, excellent massages and swimming pool to cool off after the round have the rise and the beads of sweat quickly forgotten.
Who does not want to play golf every day use the shuttle bus service to Girne, hiking in the mountains or sunning on the beach, to which there is also a shuttle bus.

Not common, but challenging
Reviewed May 5, 2010
One should not let the beautiful Mediterranean landscape and the view of the sea or the mountains distracted - this place is demanding!
Even golfers with good condition will quickly work up a sweat, not in vain, the green fees are lower in summer than in the winter half of the year, and a game you have to deal with not only the 18 (usually quite fast, but well-maintained) tracks of over 5 km, but also a difference in height, and the like might well account for 200-300 meters. An Electro-one should therefore treat themselves without inhibitions.
Also technically, the course offers some that you only can "enjoy" the game - lots of pine trees, the fairways sometimes line very closely or even stand as a group in the middle, three deep canyons that are very "ball hungry," a water hazard and paved Cartwege on the edge, the jump a batted ball diagonally and then disappear, never to be seen again. Nine tracks going uphill, downhill intervening repeatedly, sometimes quite steep, so that the ball rolls far, far too often, especially if the ground like most, is dry and hard. The greens are surprisingly well despite the general scarcity of water (the system is supposed to supply its own desalination plant).
A large driving range (with Golf Academy) and kept club house (good restaurant) and some apartment blocks complete the positive impression.
Total - not an everyday place (because of the political situation), technically challenging and beautiful game experience (owing to its scenic location).
