Cyprus Classic (Matchplay)

The Aphrodite Hills Golf Resort, So named after the supposed emergence from the sea of the goddess Aphrodite, the goddess of love! In modern terms a short 6,289 metres (6918 yards) .

The golf course opened in 2002 designed by the architect, Cabell Robinson. Robinson features superb views, tough pot bunkers,  Bermuda fairways and large multi tiered greens. The course meanders through native olive and carob trees and is built on two headlands, dramatically featuring a dividing ravine with views over the Mediterranean. The  130 metre gorge provides a location for the renowned par three 7th hole. This event finalises as a matchplay event and thus an upset result is more than possible.

Houston Open

The $7.5 million Vivint Houston Open is to be played on the 7309 yard (6683m) par 72 redesigned Memorial Park municipal course. Tom Doak, the world class designer of Barnbougle and Tara Iti redesigned the course using Brooks Koepka as his PGA Tour consultant with the intention of creating a world class public facility for the 60,000 annual,patrons and a venue for a PGA Tour event capable of testing modern players. It will be inter3ting this week to see whether he has achieved the second ambition. The Public of Houston love the course and its challenges.
