Secret Valley Golf Course
Secret Valley Golf Course is located 18km east of Paphos and 49km west of Limassol.
It lies in a scenic valley with big trees and natural rock formations, near "Petra
tou Romiou" the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Secret Valley
promises players both the beauty of nature and the pleasure of golf.
The front nine offer four nice holes for warming up, two birdie opportunities and
an easy dog leg (if you know how!). The first and third holes - par 4's 375 and
335 metres respectively - feature sand traps halfway between the tee and the green.
A good drive or a really bad one will keep a player out of trouble. The second hole
is a straight, comfortable par three. Number 4 at 120 metres has birdie written
all over it, with a tricky bunker at the front edge of the green, which requires
The back nine plays longer than the first nine and the challenge starts immediately
- no warm-up holes on this side. A long par 5 475 metres with sand traps in the
middle make the tenth hole demanding. Hole 13 is a big hitter's nightmare - a short
145 metres with water in the back (winter only). Overshoot the green and you are
out of bounds: Underplay it from the tee and bear the embarrassment of not making
the green in one. The eighteenth par 5 515 metres finishes at the clubhouse with
what appears a selection of artificial lakes on the backside of the green.
The Tsada Golf Course
Tsada Golf Course is the first grass 18 hole course, in two loops of nine, to be
built in Cyprus. Located just 20 minutes from Paphos Town, on an elevated position
550 metres above sea level, ensures cool breezes during the summer months. Historically,
it has been part of the monastery of Stavros tis Minthis, which gives an air of
timelessness and romance. From the 7th tee often a monk may be seen in the garden
of the monastery.
It plays to a par 72 and measures 6060 metres, a fine test for players of all abilities.
The fairways most of which have uphill, downhill or side hill slopes are lined with
fruit trees and grape vines. Undulating greens are not always easy to reach but
do have perfect putting surfaces. The 14th is a par 3 and the most challenging short
hole, played from an elevated tee across a ravine to a green cleverly set on the
side of the hill. The 17th (par 5) is 533 metres and has a winding fairway crossing
three unforgiving streams.
Practice facilities include putting greens, chipping areas, fairway bunkers
and a large driving range. Tuition can be tailored to suit individual requirements
and teaching can be on an individual or group basis.
The clubhouse at Secret Valley as the one at Tsada, has a wooden interior
and facilities including a fully stocked Pro-shop, locker rooms, bar and restaurant
with verandas overlooking the artificial lakes and the golf course.
The Pro-shop offers clients an array of golfing accessories, a boutique,
electrically powered Golf Carts and trolleys. A P.G.A. professional offers tuition
The local weather conditions usually permit an all the year round playtime.
In the evening down town in Paphos, visitors can explore the city day or night with
safety. A myriad of restaurants and bars will keep even the most ardent night owl
