INCREDIBLE LOCATION, SPECTACULAR VIEWS, INSPIRED GOLF, SUPERB FACILITIES AND IMPECCABLE SERVICE
At an altitude of 550m above sea level, it’s a course for all seasons, enjoying cool breezes even during the summer. Originally designed by Donald Steel in 1994, Minthis Hills is the oldest golf 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. Widely known and praised for their work on four out of the nine British Open Championship venues, Tom Mackenzie and Martin Ebert have also created 60 new projects in 16 countries during their architectural careers over the past 20 years.
MINTHIS HILLS TO HOST THE CYPRUS MEN’S AMATEUR
The three-day open, which is a counting event for R&A’s WAGR (World Amateur Golf Rankings), will be held between 20th and 22nd April, with the overall winner receiving the title ‘Cyprus Open Champion 2012’. Registration and practice will take place on April 19th.
The course enjoys a historical location, situated in the grounds of a twelfth-century monastery, from which the resort took its name. 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. To top it off, it’s a looped course with each nine returning you to the impressive clubhouse!

THE SIGNATURE HOLE
The 13th hole has been transformed into a superb island green. Challenging and memorable it leaves little room for error and an unwary golfer will lose many a ball to the lake that surrounds it. A par three without bunkers or fairway, and just 150m from its elevated tee to green, it’s an all or nothing shot requiring accuracy and skill from even the most proficient golfer. If that’s not enough of a challenging throw in a cross wind and this shot will promise to be tested time and time again!
