Tsada Golf Club
The Tsada golf club, the first grass court to be built in Cyprus, was completed in April 1994. Located just 20 minutes from Paphos town, on an elevated position 550 meters above sea level. It ensures cool breezes during the summer months.
Historically it has been part of the monastery “Stavros tis minthis “, which gives an air of timeless romance. From the 7th tee, often a monk may be seen in the garden of the monastery. The 18th hole course, designed by Donald Steel, in two loops of nine, reveal the subtle hand of a man who always allows the course to blend into its natural surroundings. It plays to a par 72 and measures 6060 meters, a fine test for players of all abilities. A driving range, 2 putting areas, a pitching / chipping area and practice bunkers give you the opportunity to warm up for the game in the course.
