The course enjoys a historical location, situated in the grounds of a twelfth-century monastery, from which the resort took its name. Its tranquil setting and mesmerizing mountain views provide the perfect backdrop for a challenging game with its fairways swathing through mature trees and water features. At an altitude of 550m above sea level, it’s a course for all seasons, enjoying cool breezes even during the summer.
Originally designed by Donald Steel in 1994, Minthis is the oldest golf course in Cyprus and has recently undergone extensive enhancement by Mackenzie & Ebert. Mackenzie & Ebert are fervent believers that golf courses should fit into the landscape and be in keeping with their setting. Widely known and praised for their work on four out of the nine British Open Championship venues, Tom Mackenzie and Martin Ebert have also created 60 new projects in 16 countries during their architectural careers over the past 20 years.
The ancient gardens in which the course is set to lend a unique flavor, with holes surrounded by grapevines, walnut, almond, and olive trees. Only a few places are so tranquil for a friendly game, being fun to play for all standards of player, with a high variety of holes. Elevated tees invite everyone to “have a go,” yet narrow tree-lined fairways provide a challenge, with each shot requiring careful assessment.
