Golf holidays in Turkey

Turkey

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.

Stretching out along the 2.5km beach at Lykia World, lies the impressive Perry Dye-designed Lykia Links. Like all great Links, the course was designed as much by mother nature, with each hole playing through dunes that have been moulded through time by the elements. Dye has used pot bunkers to guard the large slick undulating greens, and there are large areas of waste sand, a feature of many of his courses. The fairways and greens are seeded with Seaside Paspalum giving the fairways a bit of spring in them, and greens that nearly always break towards the sea. This is an easy course to walk, and combined with a strict adherence to its handicap regulations (28+36) and its slightly remote location means the pace of play is so much better than other courses in the area. We regard it as both a welcome alternative to the excellent pine lined fairways of Belek, and a great 'stay and play' course offering a different challenge each day as the wind changes direction.
