Open since October 2011, the 18-hole seaside Bay Course at Navarino Bay, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, provides both a fun experience and a challenging test for golfers of all levels. Troon Golf, the world's leading luxury-brand golf management company, also operates The Bay Course.
With the majority of tees offering sublime sea views and two holes playing along the historic Bay of Navarino, the course meanders through three distinct natural landscapes. The Seaside, Canyon, and Grove holes provide striking contrasts that create a dramatic and memorable golf round.
Seaside: Golfers experience four different Seaside greens framed by a scenic backdrop of the tranquil waters of the Bay of Navarino. The bay's natural beauty is showcased on hole #4, a short and strategic par 4 directly fronting the bay with the town of Pylos visible in the background. This challenging hole offers tremendous visual appeal.
Canyon: On The Bay Course's numerous Canyon holes, golfers play from elevated tees and pursue their drives into and through box canyons as the course switches inland from the sea. These holes feel more intimate than the Seaside holes and offer very different views and a greater variety of strategic options.
Grove: More than 1,000 mature olive trees - some more than 500 years old - were saved during the construction of the course and transplanted along the perimeter. The Grove holes meander through this treed landscape, providing distinctive mountain views in striking contrast to the Seaside and Canyon holes.
The golf course plays to a par of 71 from a variety of lengths designed to challenge golfers of various skill levels. Crafted across natural terrain, the layout offers panoramic seaside and mountain views in addition to having several holes that play directly along the sea, providing an unforgettable golfing experience. Moreover, players are welcome to sample the ripe fruit from the trees around the course at their leisure.
