The beautiful Crete Golf Club

As a friendly warning this course is now closed since mid October 2014 until next October or whenever. Saying that, it is really a fine test of golf but not for the beginner unless your a golf masochist. While not a long course (unless your play from the gold tees) each hole is novel and unique with blind greens, heavy rough but wonderful greens and well-kept fairways. Your drive down the middle is rewarded and most shots to the green will stop. Putting on the outstanding greens is true with the usual breaks but no surprises. I believe the 6th hole par 3 across a ravine is the most exciting but followed by the number 1 rated, par 4 - monster. (it plays longer than it looks) I've been told the renovation will eliminate some of the difficulty and increase playability for beginners but truly hope they do not spoil this fine mountainous course.

Just Back from Crete Golg Club 10th Oct 2012

Loved the course, fantastic setting amongst the mountains. I play off 21 handicap and found the red tees gave me tomuch advantage on the guy i was playing with. Therefore played off blue and blacks. Probably the best golf course ive played to date. All holes memorable. The 11th has the best views ever. Par 3 across a revine awesome. Cant wait to go back. Only draw back very quiet and too expensive to play there often. I have a house in Crete and would love to play golf there in the winter.

Almost excellent

I have played this course at the beginning of September - high season of tourists spending their time on beaches. The golf course was almost empty (Sunday morning), driving range was completely empty (Saturday afternoon) - I expect that the most of visitors come in winter.
The weather was perfect, few degrees lower temperature than on the beach and neverending wind coming from the sea. I expected that buggy will be necessary because of temperature, but reality was that it is necessary because of hilly terrain.
The course is not long, but it is really hard. There is fairway, semi-rough, sometimes rough, but when you shot a little bit outside, you can say good bye to the ball. Almost no outs, but searching for the ball is very difficult outside the fairway.
You will not see the sea (or I did not), but the land-views are one of the best.
What I liked: The crete is waterless land, but the course is in very good condition. Fairways mostly perfect. Nice toilets on each 9. Greens are "clear". Difficult, but for me easy to read. Hole 6 - wonderful par 3 shooting over the valley. Hole 13 - very difficult par4 with unexpected last 100 m (you will see the flag from 80 meters, not earlier).
What I did not like: It is not excellent, there are places on the fairways that "are not fairways". roughs are sometimes several centimeters, sometimes not (not speaking about the semi-roughs). Slightly higher prices - e.g. 10 Euro range fee. On almost all holes (except 3-pars) you do not see the flag - because of hilly style. No map of greens on scorecard (pin positions).
