It’s not very often that it happens anymore…but this week has taken us to a country Ive never visited before! It’s also the first time that Cyprus has hosted a European Tour event and they have done an amazing job at picking the perfect location! Aphrodite Hills Golf Course is located on the South West Coast of the Island and the resort is built across two elevated plateaus which allows us to have stunning views of the Mediterranean along our walk.
It honestly feels great to be back in action again after a much needed fortnight of rest too. I managed to get some quality time with both my coaches, Jerome and Mich before flying out this week and my game is feeling like its in a great place so I am officially ready to attack the final tournaments of this 2020 season now!
As a matter of fact, we will be playing back to back tournaments at this venue but with different formats for each of the events. The first of these will be a traditional 72 hole stroke play.

To give you a bit more insight into the course over here, there are definitely a couple of quirky features that make this place different from your regular set up! These include a tee shot over a canyon on the Par 5 third hole, an olive press in the middle of one of the fairways as well as a hole enveloped in a ravine which requires a pretty intense buggy ride down the cliffs! Fortunately water is only in play on two of the holes and the greens are large as well as there being consistently wide open fairways too.
As you might have expected, we have been forecast with endless days of warm sunshine for the duration of the tournament and next week too! Since its a coastal track we will be relatively exposed to the elements but although there might be some light breezes to contend with in the afternoons, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue and hopefully we have the perfect conditions for playing golf and making a lot of birdies!
Day one already in the books and off to a solid start. Looking forward to a fun Friday and hopefully a great weekend as well!
