The 18-hole Dunes Course was designed by former US Masters Champion and Ryder Cup captain Bernhard Langer, in association with European Golf Design. Set in diverse topography with spectacular sea and river views, tall dunes divide some of the holes adjacent to the golden beach. Inspired by the character of the natural landscape, much of the contouring mirrors the rugged outlines of the distant mountains Close to the sea, there is a links-like feel, adding to its unique style and playability; further inland it reflects a more typical Greek landscape of olive and citrus groves. Several holes run along a small river that meanders through the site and there are large undulating greens, wide fairways and steep- faced pot bunkers. The course is designed to provide an exciting challenge for all golfers, measuring from a little more than 5,000 metres from the front tees to almost 6,018 meters from the back tees with a par of 71.
