Location of golf courses in Cyprus
On offer in Cyprus are several challenging, world class golf courses, warm hospitality and practically all year round sunshine. Golf was popularised in Cyprus in the late 1990s, so it is a relatively new sport to the country. The Cyprus Golf Federation was established in 2000, its main objective to promote and manage amateur golf on the island. The golf courses on Cyprus are clustered around the popular tourist areas of Paphos and Larnaca, in beautiful valley and hillside locations. 4VIP Tour will arrange a slot for you if you have your handicap card with you.

Once complete, it is expected to be PGA approved and will boast a five-star hotel and spa facilities. There will also be luxury villas and apartments built on and around the course.
Since the announcement of the Tersefanou golf course, several new developments have sprung up around Tersefanou and the area of the golf course. This has also had an effect on other villages in the locality, such as Kiti, Mazatos and Pervolia, which are all seeing an increase in the building of villas and apartments to accommodate the expected influx of golfers and holiday makers to Cyprus.
