Olazabal to build two courses at Greek resort

GREEK GOLF RESORT Costa Navarino has announced a partnership with two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal to design two new courses on-site.

The two new 18-hole courses at Navarino Hills will overlook The Bay Course and the historic Bay of Navarino, set high above the coastline offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and the Ionian Sea.

Stretching over 150 hectares, the Navarino Hills property will have two courses that will complement and adequately expand the renowned quality golf offer at Costa Navarino, which already boasts the award-winning Dunes and Bay Courses, designed by Bernhard Langer and Robert Trent Jones II respectively.

“Costa Navarino is extraordinary and for us to have a chance to play our part in the destination’s legacy fills us with immense pride,” said Olazabal.”

The Navarino Hills property is spectacular and the views are simply breathtaking, particularly on the northern edge where you will find it almost impossible to take your eyes off the striking Bay of Navarino, famous for its naval battle history.”

“The rest of the site will also quickly win the hearts of golfers with extended views over rolling hills. For us, it is a privilege to have the chance to design not just one but two golf courses and we will do everything to do this incredible land justice and deliver a golfing experience you will want to return to over and over.”

Work on Olazábal’s signature design, his 20th course construction, has just begun and is expected to open for play by 2021.
