Golf Breaks in Turkey: Top Holiday Lettings
Best Golf Destinations in Turkey
Turkey is easily accessible from the UK, with flights year-round from most regional airports. Many of the top Turkish courses have been designed by the world's best known golf professionals and offer a range of challenges to suit both beginners and more experienced golfers.
Most golf holidays in Turkey start with a flight into Antalya airport, as most of the country's best golf courses are to the east of the main resort. Carya is one of the most famous courses on this stretch of coast and is a 7,186 yard par 72 course with mature eucalyptus and pine trees. The course is also floodlit, so why not spend the day relaxing on the beach and have 18 holes in the evening when it's cooler?
2. Lykia Links
Marketed as the only genuine links course in the Mediterranean, Lykia lies right next to the sand dunes. Lykia Links is an undulating, challenging course, filled with bunkers and low bushes rather than the mature trees often found on the inland courses. Book your tee times from the UK before leaving to secure your place to play.
Away from the Mediterranean coast, there are also a couple of world-class courses near Istanbul. One of the best-known is Kemer, a golf and country club in the rolling hills to the north of Istanbul. This is a challenging course with lots of hazards to keep the interest of even golfers playing off very low handicaps.
