Fun golf course, fabulous back 9
Sep 2021
A tough 'track' but greens were great and some beautiful holes on the back 9 in particular. We hired clubs which were of a very quality and the reception staff did a great job in receiving us, we had a fun couple of rounds and would not hesitate to recommend this course. Well done everyone at the Club.

Wonderful experience. Very friendly staff at the reception, very helpful caddy master. Well maintained terrain and holes that are challenging in different ways. Lots of variation in the holes, wonderful views. Played the course twice, hope to play here once again.

Spectacular Golf in Crete!
Jul 2021
What couldn’t be more perfect than my recent golf stay at The Crete Golf Club, just a mere 30 minutes from the islands capital of Heraklion. Embracing the wild, magnificent, local scenery, the hotel is modern and cozy with large, beautiful picture windows framing the mountains, sea and course. Should you choose not to be fully air-conditioned, a quiet overhead fan will lure you off to sleep with the fresh country air at night. The pool is a sanctuary of its own, tucked off on a quiet backside with a gentle breeze, the aroma of wild herbs and local vegetation, and the jingle of the local goats bells.
The restaurant veranda for breakfast, lunch or dinner, offers you not only specular views over the 18th hole, but the best of Cretan dishes catering to all diets. Don’t miss the local hand-made spinach pies… light and thin as air.

The course with its challenging holes, superb greens and undulating hills (I defiantly recommend a buggy) guarantees to challenge ALL handicaps. Each tee box, fairway and green is in immaculate condition. The modern driving range, and practice area, along with superb coaches guarantee you will make more than ample progress during your stay should you choose.

The caddy master not only sets you up with a sparkling clean buggy, clubs and tees, but also fills the attached ice filled cool box with complimentary water for your round - Cretan hospitality all the way!

The professional, friendly staff cannot be helpful enough, but the hole in one goes to the Clubs manager Nicholas Sotiropoulos, who does a fabulous job of leading his staff. Young, respectful and mentored by one of the best in the industry, he shares just enough of his busy day with the guest listening to their needs and experiences without being intrusive.

Over all, an amazing experience!! I’m only sorry I couldn’t play more and better to honour such a fabulous place. More reason to come back and try again, again ... and again!

Beautiful, well maintained and challenging
Jun 2021 • Solo
Excellent maintenance of the greens, which are utterly immaculate. A beautiful up and down course that is quite challenging. With my 34 handicap, I lost quite a few balls hitting over hilltops halfway down the fairway and, on reaching the lip of the hill, having no idea where my ball might be. But that’s something I now learned not to do by playing here. Other reviews describe holes 6 and 7 as being a drive across a ravine. They’re really across a fairly wide valley, so you need quite a lot of distance to make it. I walked the course, which is demanding in the summer heat, and it’s clearly designed more for golf buggies. The rental clubs are good. The drinks car offers free bottled water during your round. Very good course and a good experience.

Lastest Experience At The Crete Golf Club
Nov 2019
I have traveled, played golf around the world but very seldom found the ideal package all in one location. The setting in the mountaineous area, courtesy of staff at both restaurant and golf venue, and conditions on the course itself were delightful surprises. A relativley short course but taxing with rolling hills, superb greens and challenging holes from the uphill #1 to the finishing # 18. The 19th hole offered a great menu at reasonable prices with friendly and professional servers. Best of all was so few golfers with no waiting for tee times probably due to the end of season.
I would recommend a round which I'm sure will be remembered.

Perfect but for the transport cost
Oct 2019 • Family
The course it’s breathtaking. The holes each have beautiful vistas and each hole has its own special character. The cost of the round was reasonably cheap 80euros but the transfer to and from Elounda killed the joy.... 160 euro round trip! We are amazed there are not more courses as this setting is idyllic for golf.

Quality of the golf course, restaurant and hotel is exquisite. It’s not busy, but that’s a good thing. No need to hurry on the golf course.

Golf course is not very long, but still difficult due to small fairways and green. Couple of nice risk reward holes.

Restaurant is good although this could be a bit busier. We have been dining alone which is not pleasant. Waiter told us we were in the low season.

Hotel is excellent. Spacious rooms. Nice pool area and sporting facilities. Every day the room is completely cleaned and looked after in detail.

To conclude. The course can compete with the more known Spanish and Portuguese courses. Hotel is excellent, restaurant is good, but a little quiet.
