The Corfu Club's beautiful course, has been praised by many as one of the best kept in Europe. It was designed by the famous Swiss based architect Donald Harradine who has blended the natural resources of the Ropa Valley, with man made hazards to make the course a good test but a fair test. It is equally enjoyable for the scratch player as it is for the long handicap one. The magnificent greens of Penncross Bent are considered to be the finest in the Mediterranean. The treelined fairways and sandtraps, combine with the several lakes and meandering streams, to make an attractive picture against a backcloth of high hills. A modern irrigation system keeps the course in perfect condition at all times. There are three set of tees, thus providing enjoyment for all categories of players. The turf is very good, so it is easy to walk on and every hole on the course provides infinite variety-and its own problems.
Corfu is a great Golf course and its fame is spreading rapidly, as golfers come from all over the world to test their skills at golf and to enjoy an island which offers spectacular scenery, good food and a warm welcome.

Corfu was inhabited since Middle Paleolithic Times. History begins in 734 BC with the
colonization of the island by the Corinthians. As a province of the Roman Empire since 229 BC, it became part of the eastern Roman Empire known as Byzantium.
After many invasions and pillages by Crusaders and pirates, in 1386 AC was accepted the dominion of Venice, which lasted for about 400 years. After the fall of Venice, the Democratic French took over and stayed for about 7 years.
The creation of a semi-independent state of the 7 Ionian Islands followed, with Corfu as the capital city, under the Russian protection. The state lived until the arrival of the Imperial French. After the defeat of Napoleon, Corfu became a British protectorate, until 1864 AC when it joined Greece.
