The Top Golf Courses in Turkey
Turkey has been the most sought after golfing holiday destination for a few years now. It is not hard to see why Golfing holidays Turkey are so popular. The Three Factors that make for a truly memorable golf break are ever apparent when you consider playing the top golf courses in Turkey.
Firstly there is the weather. As the weather is pleasant throughout the day, the best time to visit Turkey for Golf is between April and October. You can expect to be playing in Shorts and Polos for the best part of the year.
Secondly, there is the All-Inclusive offering that all of the Golf Hotels offer to customers. Now All-Inclusive sometimes historically has had a bit of a reputation for being a bit sub-par. In Turkey, all-inclusive means premium drink brands, Superb buffet restaurants, and multiple bars and A' La Carte restaurants. All-Inclusive golf holidays do not get any better than in Turkey.
And Lastly, there are Golf Courses. We always use the comparison to Quinta do Lago in the Algarve. The Quality of golf on offer is really high grade. Course's have been sculpted by Sir Nick Faldo, Colin Montgomerie, Dave Thomas, and Perry Dye. With 13 Championship standard golf courses on offer all within a stone's throw of each other.
Overall, Turkey has really bolstered its reputation as being the finest golf destination in continental Europe. But which are the best golf courses in Turkey? Well, that is where we can assist you and make sure that your next trip to Belek is the very best golf break ever.
The Montgomerie Maxx Royal is one of the most premium golf courses in Belek. The Clubhouse also offers all-inclusive as part of your green fee.
The Montgomerie Maxx Royal Golf, was developed in tandem with European Golf Design. A championship test, recognised by the European Tour showcasing the golf course for the Turkish Airlines Open. One of the Race to Dubaiv Final Series signature events on tour. In 2019 Tyrrell Hatton claimed victory under the floodlights in a six-man playoff.
Another European Tour Venue, the Regnum Carya golf course is one of the more quirky and inspiring designs in the Belek region.
In Antalya's Belek Region, Carya Golf Club is the first classic, heathland style golf course on Turkey's Mediterranean coast. Carya is a European Tour standard golf course built on elongated sandhills at the core of Turkey's golf region.
Subsequently, as one of Turkey's most successful country clubs, "Carya Golf Club" has launched a massive investment to be Europe's first floodlighted golf course.
One of the toughest and finest tests of golf in Antalya. The Signature 18th hole is often considered by many as being the finest on the Belek Coastline.
A formidable challenge is the PGA Sultan Course, for which punishing holes thread through the immense pine forests. The course stretches 7,011 yards from the back tees, which will guarantee a daunting test even for the low handicap golfers.
The PGA Sultan Golf Course, crafted by David Jones and European Golf Design, has seen its turn of golfing royalty pass through its lush fairways. Most significantly, Justin Rose, who shot a 65 on the last day of the 2012 World Golf Final. Surpassed by fellow countryman Lee Westwood by one stroke and took home a tidy $1.5 million purse.
Located just a 30-minute drive from Belek lies the impressive Lykia Links by Perry Dye. Turkeys answer to Kiawah Island.
The Perry Dye design, Lykia Links Golf, sticks out from all of the other golf courses in Belek. Located just across the Köprüçay River at the eastern end of the stretch, the course runs over very undulating terrain.
Above all, the course reflects Kiawah Island in places built by Perry's father, Pete. There are many spectacular dunes of natural sand, large waste fields, sloping greens. Likewise slippery bunkers with railway sleepers, very much a part of Dye designs.
The Championship layout on the 36 Hole Sueno Golf Estate. An excellent addition to Turkey's incredible portfolio of excellent golf.
The Suneo Pines golf course winds through the native pine dense forests, as the name implies. Out of the two courses on the Sueno golf resort, the Pines course is a real skills test and an excellent challenge for all levels of handicap.
From the championship, tees the course measures over 7000 yards and with multiple lakes and expertly positioned bunkers. Therefore, even the cream of the crop can post high scorecards.
National Golf Club is the most established golf course in Belek, The Irmak and Tuna loop designed by David Feherty is a frequented venue for the Ladies European Tour.
This is a truly remarkable golf course, Matured nicely and thoughtfully routed through undulating terrain and old pine and eucalyptus trees. During the majority of the year, the snow-capped Taurus Mountains provide a stunning backdrop, particularly while the golf course is bathed in the hot Mediterranean sunshine.
