Belek has gained incredible traction in such a short time, with golf holiday numbers rising exponentially. Here are some of the reasons why it’s so popular:
Golf in Belek is home to Europe’s top all-inclusive resorts with each golf course being attached to a hotel. The hotels in Belek are nothing short of superb with every hotel competing to provide exemplary services. The standard for every resort is just astonishing as they all boast faultless hospitality and an all-inclusive luxury 5-star accommodation to enjoy after a long day of golfing.

The best thing about these Vegas-style hotels is that you’ll receive sublime servicing at an incredible value that's also achievable on the 5-star package, making Belek golf holidays even more attractive.
Natural weather conditions have a huge impact on the beautiful game. It’s important to note that in cold weather, the balls won’t travel as far. Depending on the air density, you can actually lose around 3-5 yards. Belek benefits from fantastic weather that provides ideal conditions for golfing as it enjoys a year-long warm climate with monthly temperatures averaging 11 degrees Celsius to 28 degrees Celsius. June through to August is usually very hot, but the rest of the year has suitable conditions for golf. For these temperatures, consider wearing Tailored shorts and a Polo shirt or Trousers and Polo shirt while on the golf course.
The courses are well-designed to fit the profile of being a championship and golfing destination. The Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, for example, is a premier destination, welcoming the European Tour every November. Justin Rose has emerged as the winner here for two consecutive years in the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Opened in 2014, it’s more of a newer addition that exudes opulence and class throughout.
So, if you’re looking for top-quality golf courses and services, then golf holidays in Turkey are surely your best bet. When should you go? Belek is most popular during the summer months heading into autumn and spring. If you’re on a budget, you can get lower prices during the mild temperatures of winter. The new kid on the block is just as good as the well-equipped and reputable U.S. or Spain golf courses.
