north cyprus golf esentepeGolf Holiday In North Cyprus

Golfing holidays have become extremely popular over the last number of years and North Cyprus is no exception.  Golf is a rapidly growing sport and because of the great climate that North Cyprus experiences, golfers can play all year round.  November to March is cool and provides the perfect weather for golfers.  You may encounter the odd rain shower but they can be quite rare.

In May the weather is much warmer and if you are intending on getting in a round of golf it is recommended that you choose early tee off times and avoid the midday sun.  September and October again offer ideal golf playing weather.

Korinium Esentepe Golf And Country Club

The Korinium Esentepe Golf and Country Club is the newest addition to North Cyprus.  This is the first 18 hole international standard golf course to be built in North Cyprus and it boasts some amazing features.  At this golf course you will find greens, sand bunkers, and the usual water hazards.  The course itself is 6,600 yards long and is set amongst natural scenery making it feel like it has been here forever.  Two man-made reservoirs water the greens and this helps to reduce any impact on the North Cyprus water reserves.

This golf course also features a 30 bay driving range, a golf academy where you can take lessons, and a great clubhouse where you can relax and enjoy a meal.  Golf carts are available if you need them too.

The development is still not complete though and there are plans to include some course-side villas and a hotel.
