A fantastic course with stunning views. Excellent condition. We played The Dunes twice and The Bay three times as this was our favourite. It was so lovely driving through the Olive Groves. The entrance to the course off the main road is so understated and you wonder what you are going to but when you walk into the clubhouse you are in another world. What a stunning view.
We ate there 3 times with the best service, even remembering what we had to eat and drink!

This golf course is starting a revolution.

Just as the Greek revolution began in the hills of Messenia, and was ended in Navarino Bay, this course is already making the Pylos area a destination for serious golfers.

The views are spectacular, of course. Of the 18 holes, at least a dozen looks out to Navarino Bay. Three holes play right along the water, and five others either approach or tee from the bay. And then another four or five tower over the grand vista.

Of the holes that run back into the olive groves (holes 11-15), the beauty is no less. Imagine golfing in Tuscany. Like Pebble Beach, you turn back to the beach for the final holes.

And like Pebble Beach, all those pretty views can make you forget you are playing a wonderfully designed golf course.

The layout and bunkering is clever and challenging. The elevation changes and slopes of the fairways and greens make you have to earn your ouzo. Several creeks and barankas cut alongside and across fairways, always placed to provide risk against reward, luring your shots like the Sirens to Odysseus.

The newly installed clubhouse is a wonderful place to enjoy that ouzo when you're done. Or maybe encourage you to try again.

I absolutely positively loved The Bay Course. I recognize it is ranked slightly lower than its sister course The Dunes Course (#2 in Greece to #1 in Greece), but I actually preferred The Bay Course. Don't get me wrong... I also loved The Dunes Course. But my feeling is if you're in Greece playing golf, it's fantastic having holes that are overlooking water. The resort ran a terrific package for two rounds, rental clubs, and a cart, which allowed me to play both courses and I didn't have to bring my clubs all the way to Greece. I hope to get back there to play both again as soon as possible. They are a real treat. I'm also excited to see the new courses they are building at Costa Navarino once they are done.

We played both courses twice and the Bay is a very good test of golf without being a killjoy. Great condition with very good, fair greens with subtlety that tested you, well particularly me! The Club house is very good with good post golf food and drink, and fantastic service. The Flame Restaurant is also there which is as the name suggests, the steak restaurant which is excellent. The staff here are amazing, you come in from golf and are asked where you are playing the next day. Your clubs then appear on the back of a buggy at wherever you are playing the next day or in your room if you are leaving the next day. No fuss, no tips sought just so good. Many golf clubs could learn a lot by checking them out. Practice facilities very good and ideal for a pro to come over with a group for teaching and playing. All in all a breath of fresh air, you just seem to smile your time away there. Highly recommended

This year is the fourth year we have been playing in CostaNavarino, sometimes at the Bay sometimes at the Dunes. Last years you had some facilitations: for a couple or for the hottest hours of the day. This year nothing at all. The green fee was unbelievably expensive with the surprise that there were works in progress with bulldozers and caterpillars on the course...while playing we were overwhelmed by the noise and the view of the horrendous green nets on holes 3 and 4 was horrible. And they did not give any discount for these conditions! I can also add that the staff was not so kind as some years ago: less attentive and a little bored.
To charge 164 € is outrageous!!!

Bay is a Course that has a character.
Designed from mr.Iakovou.
It’s one of the courses thatI is been built in between and around the nature with out any additions except the water hazard at the temporary first hole.
Amazing views on most of the holes.
Particularly Short but demanding and some times tricky.
You must know well your ball flight characteristics that you can score low.
All though is plesent and friendly for beginners too.
Course conditions every year are top..
Greens and fairways well maintained every day.
Caddy master staff very friendly and professional.
I always enjoy playing it.

We played The Bay course three times during our recent holiday and it would be hard to fault it. The course is in fantastic condition and the views are just stunning. We also played the Dunes a couple of times but our favourite was the Bay - we just loved the fantastic views and the lay-out of the course. Suitable for both less experienced and experienced golfers - challenging enough for the latter without being too difficult for the former. Without doubt one of the most beautiful courses I've ever played. Very friendly and efficient staff - highly recommended.
