Minthis is a beautiful and challenging course that winds its way past a 12th-century monastery with breath-taking views of the Troodos Mountains and beyond. The 18-hole, Par 72 championship course plays at 5974m off the back tee and boasts outstanding holes that organically follow the natural undulations of the topography, looping past water features and ancient groves, with hundreds of olive trees, fruit orchards and grapevines. As part of a Natura 2000 site, nature is an ever-present element and the Golf Club was recently the first in Cyprus to be awarded with a GEO Certification, recognising the eco-friendly sustainable approach and commitment to nature, resource conservation and community value.
Designed by legendary golf architect Donald Steel in 1994, Minthis is the first grass course to be built in Cyprus. Renovated by renowned course designers Mackenzie and Ebert, the course is a flawless example of their philosophy that golf courses should fit into the terrain, be in keeping with their setting and focus on the details. Their latest work at Minthis from 2017 to 2020 comprised the construction of two spectacular new holes, a three hole academy course and a complete upgrade of all greens to full USGA specification standards.
Few places are so tranquil for a friendly game, elevated tees invite everyone to “have a go”, yet narrow tree-lined fairways provide a challenge, with each shot requiring careful assessment. The opening nine holes is the shorter half of the course, encircling the historic monastery, vineyards, orchards and olive trees. The back nine holes are all about precision and there is great variety of challenges. The newly designed Par 5 10th hole is a perfect example of the accurate insight to the challenges you will face. It undoubtedly requires some skill and is a hole to remember with one of the best views in Cyprus. In addition the short Par 4 14th offers the best risk and reward tee shot on the course. The ultimate test is the Par 3 15th hole, an impressive island green and Minthis’ signature hole.
The contemporary Clubhouse is the social heart of the golf club, enjoying fantastic views of the golf course and dramatic valley. The lounge, golf terrace and cocktail bar offer the perfect space for pre and postgame drinks, while the restaurant transforms the finest local and international ingredients into culinary delights.
