FIFTY KILOMETRES north of Nicosia, the capital city of Cyprus, lies Korineum Golf & Beach Resort, a golfing paradise in the Mediterranean from the moment it opened back in April 2007.
Boasting an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Peter Harridine, who has worked on more than 160 golf courses in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, the par-72 layout is routed so that golfers can enjoy mountain and sea views from each hole.
The paspalum playing surface maintained in excellent condition all-year round, as well as the strategically placed bunkers and water hazards, help to contribute to the breathtaking experience the golf course provides.
The signature fifth hole has players engulfed by the mountains. Teeing off towards the Mediterranean Sea, the ball travels through the olive, carob and pine trees, with the Beşparmak Mountain Range directly behind and visible when putting out on the green, which is adjacent to Lake Korineum.
As well as a highly-rated course, Korineum Golf & Beach Resort also offers extensive practice facilities, including a 34-bay driving range, two putting greens, a short game area and a three-hole Academy Course featuring full length par-5, par-4 and par-3 holes, giving players a taste of what they will encounter during their rounds.
The high standards found out on the course are replicated elsewhere at the resort. With the accommodation, there are 86 luxury rooms pleasantly hidden among the pine forest at the heart of the resort, offering privacy, yet it is only a short walk from the rest of the site.
The rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished, while there is an attractive outdoor pool, which is nestled between the pines and located directly in front of the hotel room building entrances.
The spa and wellness centre, meanwhile, allows guests to experience peace and tranquility with treatments performed by the resort’s masterful therapists.
Korineum Golf & Beach Resort also has its own beach, which is located 1.5km away from the main building and accessible via a free shuttle bus. Whether it’s sipping on a cocktail, reading a book in the shade or swimming in the glistening waters, a trip to the 70-metre private beach is undeniably a holiday must. The beach has a prestigious pier, while the Korineum Beach Snack Bar offers a selection of tasty lunch options and a variety of beach drink favourites.
