Coffee Table Travel Book on Golf in Greece

8.35am 24th August 2010 - Travel

Just as The Dunes Course at Costa Navarino (part of the largest tourism development project in Greece in recent years) opens to the public, a new book Golf in Greece (186 pp) brings to light the history and current status of the sport.

Golf in Greece is a golf book and travel guide in one: Athens, Corfu, Rhodes, Crete, Olympia, Messinia. Travel writers Burke and Euser offer insight into what is no doubt one of the biggest investments in Greek tourism in recent years.

The reader travels to Greece’s seven existing golf courses and beyond to nearby beaches, archaeological sites, casinos, spas, vineyards, resorts, restaurants, hiking trails and more. All the existing courses and the two courses under development are described in detail and illustrated with striking full-colour photographs. The Off the Green sections provide the reader with an insider’s guide to historical and cultural day trips.

Golf in Greece begins in Rhodes and Glyfada home of the country’s first courses (they opened in 1928 and 1930 respectively) and brings readers to the current mega golf developments, Costa Navarino, undertaken by TEMES (Tourism Enterprises of Messinia) and The Olympia Golf Course by John and Nicholas Papapolitis.

Golf in Greece, written in both Greek and English, is available through
