The world’s first International Olympic Academy Golf Course (see above) and the neighboring Hills Course, as well as the new Hills Clubhouse, made their debut at the start of the 2022 golf season.

These two new courses provide the ideal complement to the destination’s existing signature golf courses, The Dunes Course and The Bay Course.

Nuno Sepúlveda, General Manager, Costa Navarino Golf said

“The Hills Course and The International Olympic Academy Golf Course are both outstanding golf courses situated within Europe’s newest golf destination.

We are looking forward to further developing our guest experience at both courses and with Troon’s renowned level of service, operations and agronomy standards, the expansion of our partnership is a very exciting milestone.”
