MITSIS HOTELS WILL BE CREATING ONE OF THE LARGEST HOSPITALITY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE MEDITERRANEAN
“Nicklaus Design is very excited to be part of the design of the Afandou Golf Resort in Rhodes, Greece and collaborate with Mitsis Hotels in order to create a superb beachfront golf experience. We look forward to bringing the owner’s vision to life and helping to shape the future of golf and tourism in the area”.
To this end, Mitsis Hotels is currently working on creating a high-standard refurbishment plan while testing high-quality golf turf of 4 different varieties of Common Bermuda Grass, to ensure top-class results for the project.
- Tifway419 is a deep green Bermuda grass with a fine texture. It has excellent weed and disease resistance and is a superior turf for athletic fields and lawns. It is also providing an excellent impact-absorbing cushion.
- Tahoma 31 is a hybrid bermudagrass exhibiting exceptional winter survivability, a high level of drought resistance, and wide climatic adaptation. This type is demonstrating excellent establishment characteristics, fine texture, high turf density, early green-up, dark green colour, and sufficient sod strength for reliable turfgrass production.
- Latitude 36 is a natural variety of grass and is considered one of the top grasses, showing resistance to spring dead spot. This variety offers high traffic tolerance and exceptional visual appeal, while it is flexible and ideal for hot areas.
- Ibiza Artificial Grass is a dense premium range of grass with a c-shaped yarn making it slightly more robust and suitable for all locations, it’s made up of 3 shades of green with brown curly thatch.
All above-mentioned varieties are drought resistant and resilient to the water with relatively high salinity, ideal for the construction of a stunning beachfront gold course, set along a stretch of Rhodes’ coastline.
