Antalya’s golf courses

When you think of Turkey holidays, you think of glorious sunshine, incredible beaches and a wealth of historical sites to visit. All of which, the country has in abundance. But there’s something else that Turkey is great for. And that’s golf.

For those of you that have a passion for a good 18-holer, the place to be heading for your Antalya holiday is the luxurious resort of Belek. Now said to be one of the leading golf destinations in Europe, Belek boasts around 20 excellent golf courses, a number of which are championship ones and have seen the likes of Tiger Woods tee off from them.

The great thing about golfing in Belek is that it has the perfect climate year-round, so you can make the journey here for your summer holiday or even for a winter sun getaway. There is a fantastic selection of luxury hotels to choose from in Belek, many of which have their own on-site golf courses. But one of the best ones to experience superb facilities and service is the Cornelia Diamond Golf Resort & Spa, where Sir Nick Faldo has created an incredible 27-hole complex.
