World Golf Awards 2022 Winner

Costa Navarino (Greece)


Meet the winner

Located in the Greek region of Messinia in the southwest Peloponnese, Costa Navarino is the prime, sustainable destination in the Mediterranean, and the venue has taken its status to new heights with the eagerly anticipated opening of Costa Navarino’s new 36-hole Navarino Hills golf development.

The world’s first International Olympic Academy Golf Course and the neighbouring Hills Course were officially unveiled to the golfing world alongside the new Hills Clubhouse – marking a new era for the venue and the arrival of Europe’s newest golf destination.

Designed by two-time Masters champion José María Olazábal, the two layouts provide the ideal complement to Costa Navarino’s two existing signature golf courses – The Dunes Course (designed by Bernhard Langer in association with European Golf Design) and The Bay Course (created by Robert Trent Jones Jr.) Costa Navarino’s guests can now enjoy the challenge of four signature golf courses within a 13km maximum distance.

The quality of golf is matched by the high standard of Costa Navarino’s leisure and lifestyle facilities away from the fairways and further exciting developments are on the way with the opening of two more luxury resorts by spring 2023.
