Despite the rainfall that Cyprus has had this winter, water is a scarce, expensive, resource that needs to be carefully managed across the island. At Vikla they made a decision to follow a different path to the typical verdant green golf resort with which we are all so familiar.
By using a small amount of water to keep the greens and aprons lush, allowing the fairways to naturally dry out and green up with the seasons, Vikla sets up an interesting challenge!
To answer the problem of dry fairways in the summer, fairway shots are played from artificial grass mats supplied by the Club. Some golfers prefer to bring their own plastic ‘rocket launchers’. Both of these is are excepted by the EGA and CGF for official qualifying competition play.
The course offers eighteen holes, a mix of par 3, 4 and 5 for a total of 4,616 and 4,217 respectively.
To achieve par you will need to go round in 69 shots
You can expect to pay somewhere between 25€ to 30€ a round depending on the season.
The club house offers spectacular views out over the nearby countryside. An ideal location to eat, drink and mull over your most recent round!
Expect to find Greek, English and Russian speaking golfers on this increasingly popular course.

Here’s a review we found on Trip Advisor from January 2019
A lovely course which is exactly as advertised. If you’re expecting lush green manicured grounds this may not be the place for you, but if you want a fun day, a challenging course with good greens, stunning scenery and a friendly welcome this is well worth a visit.
