Two-time Masters champion and Ryder Cup legend José María Olazábal was recently announced as the designer of two new golf courses at Navarino Hills, which will open for play in 2021.
The new Olazábal designs will take the Costa Navarino golf offering to an impressive four layouts, alongside The Dunes Course – designed by Bernhard Langer together with European Golf Design – and The Bay Course, created by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr.
Further developments at the destination will upgrade the sporting facilities, with an emphasis on tennis, alongside the opening of a unique, sustainable earth-sheltered clubhouse at The Bay Course, which will add further drive to Azalea’s mission for worldwide recognition for the destination.
One of the world’s most sustainable destinations, Costa Navarino is renowned for its pristine coastal location, breathtaking landscape, cultural heritage, luxury hospitality and real estate. A commitment to the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility exist throughout its operation, as well as a desire to promote the entire region of Messinia, while protecting and preserving both its natural beauty and heritage.
Luke Frary, Azalea account director, said: “This is a fabulous opportunity for us to communicate Costa Navarino across the marketing spectrum in order to heighten its status within European and global markets, and to spread the word about the unique proposition that the destination has to offer.”
