The Schacolas Group has improved plans under consideration for two new golf courses near Polychrisochou, at the site of old mining works at Limni in the Paphos district .The courses are a Jack Nicklaus design. Earlier plans were turned down as they failed to satisfy stringent environmental conditions, and further independent environmental impact studies were requested at that time, as the area is close to a Natura 2000 Network. Natura 2000 Network is a Pan-European initiative consisting of protected breeding sites and resting places for certain endangered species and some specialised habitats, but without the designated area being an actual nature reserve with prohibited access. The proposed multimillion value golfing complex will consist of two eighteen hole golf courses with their respective club houses, single story homes, onsite shops and sporting facilities, as well as cycling routes and pedestrian lanes.
A 5 star hotel with 160 rooms is also planned. Maintaining golf courses can be quite water intensive and particular attention is being paid to the consideration of water capture and reuse of water on the development. In the event of any antiquities being unearthed during the construction work, the Department of Antiquities will require work to halt whilst it is evaluated.
Golf tourism in Cyprus is rising, and the recent successful visit by professional golfers from Austria to find out about golfing facilities on the island, has led to talk of a Pro-Am golf tournament being held at the end of 2016, and golf tuition package holidays being promoted. The golfers visited the golf courses located at Aphrodite Hills, Elea, Minthis Hills and Secret Valley. An Austrian travel agent, Kuoni Golfreisen, who specialises in golfing holidays, invited the sportsmen and women on the trip to Cyprus. The Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO) approved of and supported the initiative to promote Cyprus as a golfing destination especially during the winter months when the weather makes for highly enjoyable golfing conditions.
