Costa Navarino - high class golf in Greece

Read this post in Swedish: Costa Navarino - högklassisk golf i Grekland 

Scroll down for links to the other Golf Courses in Greece!

At Peloponnese there is a new golf course of world class. The park is called "Costa Navarino" and means a lot for Messinia in the southwest of Peloponnese.

Nearby is the town Pylos, historically known under the name "Navarino". Pylos was the home town of Nestor  (Homeros).

The shipowner Vassilis Constantakopoulos, who recently passed away (January 2011), built this fantastic and environmentally friendly park/construction. During 25 years he was buying piece by piece of the land, which is close to his home village. Great consideration has been taken to the nature.

Navarino Bay. The Battle of Navarino was held here 1827!

There are two luxury hotels, "Navarino Dunes". At the park/construction there is also a lot of fun for children like for example minitennis, treasure hunting, golfschool and more.

Victoria and David Beckham were there on vacation last summer with their children...
