But the Bay Course is not the only spectacular golf course in Costa Navarino. The Dune is another incredible golf course you can enjoy in the same resort. It is slightly different than the Bay Course and it may not be that spectacular, if we are to think about the surrounding scenery, but golf will be played at the same standards here as well. This is the first signature golf course in Greece, designed by Bernhard Langer, former Ryder Cup Captain and US Masters Champion, in collaboration with the European Golf Design. It has a total of 18 holes and it is a rather impressive golf course. It is rather rare for one resort to have two golf courses and both of them to be this good. Costa Navarino has two golf courses and they are both top notch course. You will be surprised of how green both courses are, because the management of the resort invests significant amounts of money every year for keeping them in great shape. The founder of this resort, Vassilis Constantakopoulos, who passed away in 2011, was very fond of golf and respected nature at the same time.
