Elea Golf Club Paphos  
Elea Estate Golf Club Course
4 Stars: Rated by visitors to this course

Elea Golf Club - Geroskipou,  Koloni, Paphos, Cyprus
Golfing Resorts Cyprus - The Sir Nick Faldo Designed and created 18-hole layout commands a striking location with fantastic views over the shimmering Mediterranean Sea. It has been meticulously crafted through rolling countryside and features imposing weathered outcrops of limestone and mature carob and olive trees that offer a unique character across the golf course.

Sir Nick Faldos thoughts on his build of this golf course:
"I would like to thank the entire team here at Elea and of course in particular Zenon Eliades, whose relentless dedication and vision has made this stunning project possible.
All of us at Faldo Design are proud of our own achievement here. We have created a course that offers not only strategic golf in a beautiful setting, but is also very sympathetic to its environment with minimal water-usage and a concentration on native plant species. This is a golf course that sits comfortably and in harmony with its landscape.
I'm certain that this course will become a real talking point in the Mediterranean and the Elea Estate certainly has the potential to help develop the perception of Cyprus as a special golfing destination."

One of the most important new European golf courses of recent years, the Elea Golf Club located in Geroskipou, Koloni, Paphos, Cyprus, will be officially opened on Thursday 21st October 2010 by the course's designer and six-time Majors winner Sir Nick Faldo. The Elea Golf Club, which is situated in Paphos and only 8km from the international airport, will be the centrepiece of Elea Estate, a premium development that will boast luxurious villas and apartments, a boutique hotel supported by a range of dining options and extensive spa facilities.

This magnificent par 71 golf course commands a striking location above the shimmering Mediterranean Sea and has been meticulously crafted through dramatic landscape, featuring imposing weathered outcrops of limestone that offer a unique character across the course. Commenting on his vision for Elea Golf Club, Sir Nick Faldo said: "This golf course certainly has the potential to play a pivotal role in establishing this part of the world as a leading European golf destination. When we designed the golf course at Elea Golf Club we decided to put the emphasis on thoughtful, rather than big-hitting golf and there are plenty of strategic riddles for the golfer to explore and unravel over all 18 holes."

The fascinating layout circulates through stands of mature carob and olive trees, while the dramatic outcrops of weathered limestone strike a contrast with the deep green of the seaside paspalum grass fairways and semi-roughs. In a carefully planned ecological design, individual holes are fringed by undisturbed and un-irrigated swathes of colourful native 'garrigue' flora. This stunning visual effect invokes a truly Mediterranean feel, while retaining the ethos of a traditional and dramatic experience for the golfer. In addition, the wildlife of partridges, birds of prey, butterflies and lizards thrive on the benefits of this carefully protected environment. One of the significant features of Elea Golf Club is the 2,260sqm Clubhouse that also boasts underground parking facilities.

After driving into the Estate, visitors will be welcomed into a beautiful tiled plaza which leads into a luxury Clubhouse featuring multiple terraces with sensational views over the course and down to the Med, a relaxing lounge area, library, and an international culinary and event experience which will no doubt be one of the best in Cyprus.

Ross Robertson, Director of Golf Operations at the Elea Golf Club, said: "The Elea Golf Club is without doubt a golfer's golf course and most of all we want to deliver a golf experience where our guests can feel the spirit of the game as soon as they drive through the gates. For too long the international golf business has been focused on turning over numbers. At Elea we intend to change that. We want everyone, whether a golfer or non-golfer, to experience a real club; where everyone is welcomed and everyone can feel at home. Furthermore, with a brilliant golf course that blends seamlessly into the beauty of the natural landscape, our guests will be in awe of what is a truly remarkable place. Our mission at Elea Estate is to deliver a supreme experience for everyone. Whether for golfers on the course, or visitors relaxing in the Clubhouse and enjoying our world-class culinary experience, our focus will be on delivering levels of service throughout our operation which surpass all their expectations."

The Elea golf course estate is also supported by the Elea golf academy that sits alongside the clubhouse. It features a full length driving range complete with target greens and bunkers, a short game practice area and a stunning putting green that commands an imposing location overlooking the entire estate.  Although Elea Golf Club will undoubtedly attract visitors from across Europe and beyond, the management team is also keen to develop a club-style atmosphere for the residents of Paphos and the island of Cyprus.

With this in mind, a limited number of annual memberships will be available and successful candidates will enjoy a host of benefits, including a members' trophy bar, wonderful locker rooms, a private terrace,  

Ross Robertson added: "We have a responsibility to serve the community in Cyprus as well as attracting visitors from overseas. We are keen to develop a healthy membership that will enjoy all the benefits, both playing and social, of being a part of a golf club which epitomizes all that is good about our great game."
