Belek is in the Antalya region of the South-West of Turkey and has become a popular destination for British golfers seeking outstanding courses, year-round sunshine and luxury hotels at affordable prices.
Of the hundreds of thousands who travel abroad each year in search of sun and golf, many are now discovering the secrets of this vibrant young Mediterranean resort.
Turkey is relatively new to golf but it is growing fast. In less than two decades, Belek has acquired nearly 300 championship-standard golf holes spread across 11 separate locations.
The Antalya region is part of the Turkish Riviera – a grand name for a wonderful place. But whether you are playing golf, staying at one of the region’s 40 five-star hotels, dining out on traditional Turkish cuisine, or shopping for jewellery and designer clothes, nowhere offers better value.
The golfing oasis of Belek has been carved out of a pine and eucalyptus forest framed majestically by the snow-capped Taurus Mountains which glisten in the background.
Everything about the golf experience at Belek is state of the art, and yet it should be remembered that the whole region is part of the very cradle of Civilisation itself.
Links with the distant past include the ancient cities of Side, Phaselis, Termessos and Perge, while the magnificent amphitheatre at Aspendos can accommodate 15,000 spectators and is often used to stage concerts and other dramatic performances.
For those who wish to explore the locality, no visit is complete without witnessing the Manavgat waterfalls, the Carain caves, the lakes at Isparta in the Taurus Mountains and the picturesque harbour in Antalya where the Roman emperor Hadrian dined.
Historic antiquities, brilliant golf, glorious sunshine, natural beauty, luxury hotels, golden beaches, sumptuous cuisine… all at unbeatable prices! Isn’t it about time you booked up to visit Belek?
