Secret Valley Golf Course

Nestled in a scenic valley in Pafos (Paphos), by Petra tou Romiou – the place where legend says Aphrodite, the Ancient Greek Goddess of Love was born – Secret Valley Golf Course offers a stunning setting with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and sheer playability.

Hans-Georg Erhardt and Snorri Vilhjalmsson of Golf & Land Design are the course architects, with Tony Jacklin – four times Ryder Cup Captain and Winner of the British Open and US open – providing his signature for the golf course’s new visage.

With the course carefully laid out in the natural landscape, and with mature vegetation in the lower part of the valley, the setting is distinctly a Cyprus one with a unique Mediterranean feel. Utilising the steep hillside terrain, the course offers spectacular tee locations and long views towards valley and ocean.

Recently rebuilt and opened in 2013, the par 71 course of 5.700 metres unfolds through rolling Bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens. It is further supported by an academy that offers tuition from a PGA Professional. The modern practise area boasts 22 covered bays; large putting, chipping, and pitching greens, plus indoor solutions. A floodlight 3-hole loop for evening play is conveniently located at the lowest end of the golf courses, where the beach development links with the golf course.

The elegant clubhouse is decked out in wood and stone with cosy seating areas and fireplace, as well as valley vistas from two balconies and a menu of fine international cuisine at its restaurant. The golf club also boasts a luxury development of villas and apartments – Venus Rock Resort.
