Set in a picturesque valley surrounded by vineyards and orchards, overlooking an unspoilt panorama of rolling hills and deep blue sea, lays Minthis Hills.
At the heart of the resort is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Donald Steel in 1994, it has been the first course in Cyprus and has recently undergone extensive enhancement by Mackenzie & Ebert. Mackenzie & Ebert are fervent believers that golf courses should fit into the landscape and be in keeping with their setting. This natural character is greatly appreciated by our golfers, as is the fact that it’s a walkable course.
The golf course enjoys a historical location as it is situated in the grounds of a 12th century monastery, from which the resort took its name, with holes surrounded by grapevines, walnut, almond and olive trees. Views and vistas are a distinctive feature at Minthis Hills, with the resort possessing expansive and dramatic views of the Troodos Mountain range, which despite great distance is completely uninterrupted. Minthis Hills is located just 15 minutes from Paphos Town at an altitude of 550 metres above sea level, it is a course for all seasons, enjoying cool breezes and low humidity during summer and a pure freshness during the cooler months. Its year-round playability is a key reason for its popularity amongst resident and foreign golfers.
Its tranquil setting and mesmerising mountain views provide the perfect backdrop for a challenging game with its fairways swathing through mature trees and water features. Few places are so tranquil for a friendly game, being fun to play for all standards of player, with great variety between holes. Elevated tees invite everyone to ‘have a go’; yet narrow tree-lined fairways provide a challenge, with each shot requiring careful assessment. In fact, Minthis Hills offers the only island hole in Cyprus, challenging and memorable it leaves little room for error and an unwary golfer will lose many a ball to the lake that surrounds it!
In addition to an excellent golf course Minthis Hills has a Golf Academy which is dedicated to creating outstanding golf learning experiences to improve your game while making it all more enjoyable. Providing the highest quality in golf instruction – whether one-to-one, with a partner, or for corporate groups – the club offers strategic training from a PGA professional. Perched on the brow of a hill the driving range offers 16 elevated tees with fine views of the Troodos Mountain range. It’s the perfect place to practice, where even a topped shot will travel a fair distance, and the ‘hang time’ on a well struck ball seems like an age.
A luxurious two-thousand square metre clubhouse is the social heart of the resort, enjoying fantastic views of the golf course and dramatic valley. The Clubhouse lounge, golf terrace and sports bar offer the perfect space for drinks, while the restaurant, with its award winning culinary team, trained by Alain Ducasse, transforms the finest local and international ingredients into culinary delights.
