Turkey may not immediately strike most of us as a luxury golf destination, but jet out to the southern coastal area of Belek and you will be surprised. In the past three years, this popular area of Turkey has quickly established itself as one of the world’s premier golf destinations. With it’s pre-prepared infrastructure, a new sprinkling of excellent courses have popped up, with a choice of terrain including heathland, dunes, pine forests and groomed lawns. And now these wonderful championship and links courses can be reached more easily, with direct flights from the UK. For year-round sun, fantastic 5 star hotels, many with all-inclusive dining, spas featuring Turkish hammams, and miles of sandy coastline to enjoy, Turkey rivals any other European golf location.
