Golf resorts & Golf courses Turkey
If you are a golf lover, you aren’t going to be disappointed by the quality and variety of golf resorts and golf courses available to you across Turkey. The Mediterranean coastal region boasts resort towns with excellent high quality golf courses. However from the sparkling Turkish Riviera to the splendour of Istanbul, the year-round clement temperatures and geographic beauty of Turkey offers the best golfing experiences across the entire country.
Those seeking to purchase property close to golf courses or on golf resorts in Turkey, or simply enjoy the best golfing prospects in the country, should look no further than one place - Belek, in the Antalya region, an area teeming with the finest resorts and golf courses in Turkey.
A mixture of the ancient and the modern, Belek boasts glorious sun-drenched beaches and world class golf courses. The area has been heavily invested in both locally (it became the Turkish tourism centre in 1984) and internationally, to produce a great quality of life whether holidaying or living in the area. With views of the Taurus Mountains (where you might also enjoy a little skiing) and the beautiful fresh waters of the Mediterranean ocean, the Cornelia Golf Club and Resort is something very special indeed. The twenty-seven hole course, designed by world-class champion Nick Faldo will challenge players of all levels. It also features one of the finest golfing academies in Europe and a clubhouse that is the envy of the region.
Elsewhere in Belek, the National Golf Club has a surprisingly tough eighteen-hole course that opened in 1994, designed by experienced professional golfers David Feherty and David Jones. There is also a 9 hole executive course that players of any level can attempt to master. A forty bay driving range, practise bunkers, chipping areas and putting greens can help even the finest players to achieve their best.
Officially launched at the BMW Championship, Colin Montgomerie has recently designed a masterful eighteen-hole golf course for Papillon Hotels. This brand new resort close to Antalya town and centred around a one hundred million dollar hotel resort complex opens in late 2007, it might be the perfect time to purchase property in the region before the new resort really takes off! With hotel management dreaming of a new ’Turkish Open’ being held at the Montgomerie Course, this could be something special indeed!
Outside of Belek, there are also some excellent courses and golf resorts in Turkey. Thirty minutes from Istanbul, in the Belgrade Forest is the Kemer County Golf Club. Breath taking views of lake and forest are incorporated into this eighteen -hole dream course.
The Klassis Golf Club, Istanbul is one of the leading clubs in Europe boasting international standards.
On the Aegean side, Bodrum is quickly establishing itself as a prime area for golfers. Bodrum golf course is located in Ortakent, only 10 minutes outside of Bodrum itself, and is a fully operational course and training academy with driving range, putting area and bunkers. There is also a club house, pro-shop, spa, jacuzzi, restaurant, bar and cafe. Tuzla, just 20 minutes from Bodrum is fast becoming Turkey's top golfers paradise. The new Vita Park golf course, Tuzla opened last November and offers two 18 hole courses – the Milas Par71 which also features a golf academy, and the challenging Halikarnas Par 71. With development now starting on the second golf course, and plans for 4 more courses within the next couple of years bringing the total to 6 golf resorts in Tuzla, this area is set to offer excellent returns for anyone investing in Bodrum. Currently offering some of the lowest prices on the Bodrum peninsular, Property for sale in Tuzla can be found from 50,000 euros
If you are looking to play a few rounds whilst you are visiting Turkey, it might be as well to book and pay for your fees in advance, many of the clubs offer substantial discount on green fees and have some excellent hotel and golf packages. You can also book sessions with a Pro to give you a few lessons at the same time.
