The most unique golf course close to Belek, Lykia is around 25 minutes away from the main hub of Belek and is an absolute gem!!
It is just so different from the rest of the courses in the region. Designed by Perry Dye, Son of the legend that is Pete Dye has designed some stunning golf courses over Europe including one of my favorites in the Costa del Sol, San Roque Old course.
The course is laid out over a classic links landscape with natural sand dunes and uneven fairways.
A most notable difference from the surrounding courses is its length, it is Long!!!!
A Long Golf Course.
Playing nearly 7600 yards from the back tees, you will find yourself playing all manors of interesting and imaginative golf shots, Drivers from the deck, putts from 30 yards, Flop shots from the sandy dunes.
In the height of the summer these fairways are so firm and the greens almost impossible to land on, but if you like playing a different style of golf (and believe me links is not for everyone) Then make sure to tick this off of the wish list.
Pro Tip, “This is a risk and reward golf course, take a chance where possible the slopping fairways often favor low running shots and will always give you a chance to get close to pins with the right method of stroke. The greens are not as fast as everywhere else in the region so you can really try to find the back of the cup and make a score.”
