Caesarea Golf Course

Golf, anyone? If your idea of a great vacation in Israel includes 18 holes of golf on a professional-grade golf course, you’ll want to visit the Caesarea Golf Club. The only 18-hole golf course in Israel, the Caesarea Golf Club is located about 45 minutes north of Tel Aviv. The Caesarea Golf Club plays a singular role in Israel’s golf scene, helping the country to become a true golf vacation destination for fans of the sport worldwide.

The original golf course here opened in 1961 under the auspices of the Baron de Rothschild family, so by the early 2000s, it was time for an upgrade. World-renowned golf course designer Pete Dye oversaw plans for a major overhaul, which took place over two years and completed in 2009.

The Caesarea Golf Club’s course is now sophisticated enough to host international golf tournaments and to welcome amateur golfers as well. The full Caesarea Golf Club experience includes a golf academy, a school for young players, and a pro shop where a wide selection of golf and related sporting goods are available. The club features an upscale restaurant, expansive ranges for training and a full array of skilled instructors. The 18-hole course itself is punctiliously groomed and is diverse enough to offer challenging play to every level of golfer. Every hole challenges both the proficient player and the average golfer with its expert, environmentally conscious design.

The scenery all around the course is gorgeous, and it’s surrounded, as many of the best golf courses in the world are, by a luxury residential neighborhood and golf community. If you’re looking for spa treatments to accompany the golf component of your vacation, those are available as well at the extravagant Caesar Spa.

You can also top off a round of golf and a hot stone massage with a bit of touring in the ancient port of Caesarea. Stay at the Dan Caesarea Hotel and catch an evening concert in the Caesarea amphitheater. Enjoy the magnificent beach, the restaurants, cafés and art galleries. Tour the archeological ruins and learn the history of Caesarea, a city that dates back more than 2000 years.
