  • Visited Crete Golf again..satisfied with everything but the course was under a bit of maintenance with slower greens and scarified tees/fairways. A bit unlucky for me! Well worth a visit!!  more »
  • We have several rounds (9 partly 18 hole) played. The place is very well maintained, the fairways, bunkers and Greens are largely impeccable. The front hole is nine by the two strips of 6 (par 3) and 7 (par 4), require the two tees about canyons across, slightly more sophisticated. The distances between the cars are sometimes not quite short - when you're traveling like to actually walk, you should include weather 18 hole in the decision - very sunny/warm days, a cart is certainly not a bad choice. The staff is very friendly, you get a small bottle of water and some tea before the game and after the game there are cold (on hot days) or warm (on cooler/windy days) wipes on the return station for the carts. The clubhouse is very nice and inviting after the game on the large covered terrace, watching the 18th hole. In the preseason, a tea-time is actually not necessary - we have to start always ad hoc basis without further ADO. Who wants to go to play it safe, the reserved (and paid for) online. The Crete Golf course is priced more in the upper segment - 55 EUR for 9 holes, 85,-EUR for 18 holes (without cart). This is already a word - but you can of course also strike where it is virtually monopoly. Built next to the clubhouse, might arise here are some hotel rooms? Otherwise that offers itself to stay close to Chersonissos (about 5-7 minutes by car) on or else the village heights resort (5 minutes by car; Caution: there is no special conditions more for guests of the village heights resort on the golf course, even though the resort Web page it still advertises). We have probably come back to the play here, if we travel to Crete.

  • We had a great day of golfing at the Crete golf club. The staff was friendly, the course in good condition and food was great. I enjoyed the course layout, especially the back nine. A few holes on the...  more »

  • Excellent course with great greens, well manicured, friendly staff, close to the airport on the great Island of Crete! Food is delicious, ambience is even better. Great place for a golf trip!
  • Elegant place !
  • We love to golf, and we had a great time as a result. The views are breathtaking, but the actual golf course has much to improve upon. The clubhouse is quite pretty, with a nice view of the 18th hole and surrounding mountains from the restaurant. The staff in the restaurant is attentive and the food is excellent. We paid for 18 holes (two adults), a drive cart, and club rentals for each. You can rent a beaten up, well aged set of clubs for 20 Euros or a relatively new set of clubs for 30 euros. We opted for the premium clubs. When we got down to the area where you pick up the cart and your clubs, the guy manning the station first insisted that we paid for a pull cart (not correct). He then brought out an actual golf cart with one set of terrible looking clubs. I insisted that we paid for two sets of premium clubs. He then hastily pulled out a set of women's clubs for my wife, which looked decent. I then asked if the men's clubs he put on the cart were premium. He said, "yes, yes, yes..." and off we went to the driving range. Speaking to the guy who was running the driving range (who seemed to be a lot less lazy, and a lot more focused on customer service) he took one look at the clubs and said "those are absolutely not premium clubs." He put together a really good set of clubs for me, all brand new Taylor Made, although we were in such a rush by that point neither of us noticed that he didn't put a P wedge in my bag. When we get out on the course, the first two holes have their greens torn up at the front (literally big holes where the green is being fixed). When you travel, there's plenty of things that might be different from what you expect when you're at home, and you need to accept that in different places, there are different standards for how things are done. Some things are cultural, and you need to be respectful of where you are. However, if I'm paying a total of 290 Euros all included (about $430 CAD, or $325 USD) for a round of golf for two people, I don't want to be reminded of golf courses that I can play at home for less than $20 CAD, which is exactly what happened at the Crete Golf Club. If you're dying to play golf, you'll probably like it. But just go into it expecting to pay a heavy premium over what you might pay for the same quality at home, especially if you're Canadian (don't know how this compares with what you'd normally pay in Europe).
  • 18 hole golf course. The only one in Crete
  • Pretty challenging and well maintained golf course. All around good. Good practice facilities. Court catering. Nice clubhouse and very friendly staff
