The international-standard 18-hole Golf course with the mild Mediterranean climate all year round and the state-of-the-art, fully equipped facilities, make Porto Carras Grand Resort the ideal Golf destination. The course was initially designed by Geoffrey S. Cornish and William G. Robinson, two of Americas most renowned course architects in 1974, rating Porto Carras Golf & Country Club as one of their finest creations. It was renovated in 2003 by Roy Mc Ray.
The "Olive Grove" course is often characterised as "romantic" and is widely recognised by all golfers who have played on this course even once. It was designed as a course par 72, to present a challenge to the good golfer but yet not discourage the less experienced players. The strategic water obstructers and the bunkers provide tension in every stroke, while from each starting point a player may enjoy different views, such as: Mountains Itamos and Meliton, Porto Carras vineyards in the middle, Villa Galini, the sea, the sea side village of Neos Marmaras and of course the natural landscape of unparalleled beauty at Porto Carras.
The "Olive Grove" is the first golf course in Northern Greece and hosts top level international championships.
