Golf holidays in 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.

National Golf is regarded as the grandfather of golf in this area, yet it is incredible to think that this David Feherty designed course only opened in 1994. The course is quite tight, and winds through pine trees and giant Euculyptus trees and culminates in a short risk and reward par 4 over water in front of the clubhouse, and its impressive terrace. It is the most mature course on the island with a members club feel to it, and should be top of your list of course to play particularly if you are staying at Sirene or Santai.
