The Dunes Course

The 18-hole Dunes Course has been designed by former US Masters Champion and Ryder Cup Captain Bernhard Langer, in association with European Golf Design. Set in diverse topography with spectacular sea and river views, tall dunes divide some of the holes adjacent to the golden beach. Inspired by the character of the natural landscape, much of the contouring mirrors the rugged outlines of the distant mountains. Close to the sea, there is a links-like feel, adding to its unique style and playability; further inland it reflects a more typical Greek landscape of olive and citrus groves. Several holes run along a small river that meanders through the site and there are large undulating greens, wide fairways and steep-faced pot bunkers.

The course is designed to provide an exciting challenge for all golfers, measuring from a little more than 5,000 meters from the front tees to almost 6,018 meters from the back tees with a par of 71.

It features a full-size driving range and a short-game practice area, an impressive clubhouse including Flame restaurant, a designated members’ lounge and an exclusive pro shop.

The Bay Course

The second signature-designed course sets Costa Navarino on its path to becoming a golf destination. Playing to a par of 70 and a little shorter than The Dunes Course at 5,422 metres from the back tees, The Bay Course is situated a few minutes’ drive away and offers an alternative set of challenges. Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr., the course places a slightly greater emphasis on strategic play and positional golf.

The idyllic setting runs through foothills and right alongside the historic Bay of Navarino. Most tees offer breathtaking sea views and the course twists and turns through three (Seaside, Canyon and Grove) distinct natural landscapes, providing striking contrasts that create a dramatic and memorable round.


The Bay Course Costa Navarino has been named ‘Greece's Best Golf Course 2019’ for the 6th consecutive year at The World Golf Awards.
