Belek – a golfer’s paradise

Türkiye’s popularity as a golf destination continues to grow, and golf tourism is big business in the town of Belek on Türkiye’s southern Mediterranean coast, a top golf destination, known for its ideal weather and world-class facilities.

Belek is now home to several world-class, PGA tour-standard facilities, including ones designed by legends of the sport Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie, offering a choice of 17 different 18-hole championship courses, two links courses and 16 forest courses.

It plays host to more than 50 tournaments a year, including the Turkish Airlines Challenge and the Turkish Airlines Open.

The temperate climate allows golfers to play every month of the year, in average temperatures of 24°C and with more than 300 days of guaranteed sunshine.

It’s just a 35-minute drive from Antalya airport and there are plenty of luxury hotels with Belek’s courses sitting between the mountains and the sea, making it a golfer’s paradise.

The facilities are world-class, with state-of-the-art practice facilities and lessons with PGA-certified instructors on offer, making it an ideal location for beginners and experts alike. The choice of clubs also reflects its wide appeal, with a different course for every day of your holiday – at the seaside links, you could be on the legendary Aspendos Course at Cullinan Links in Belek, while the floodlights at Montgomerie Maxx Royal and Carya Golf Club both offer the chance to play on past sundown.
