The following top golf courses are all within easy travelling distance of the villa in Belek.
The National, voted 16th best course in world by The Golf Magazine, is an 18 hole Championship course designed by Ryder Cup player David Feherty. Carved through a forest of eucalyptus and pine trees, with natural lakes and the Taurus mountains as a back-drop, this is a fantastic par 72 course to challenge golfers of all levels.
Designed by Nick Faldo, 2 minutes drive from the villa, 18 holes opened in November 2006, a futher 9 hole course is planned for Spring 2007. The course is built on a vast sand dune ridge so contains plenty of small hills and dog legs as you thread past the beautiful lakes and pine forest, making this an exceptional course, built to the highest standard.
This International Championship 27 hole course gives golfers the choice of playing 18 holes or 3 different options of 9 hole arrangements. With views of the Taurus mountains and one of the 9 hole courses running alongside the Mediterranean, the views are breathtaking to complement the lush fairways and generous greens.
Here you can find an 18 hole course and 3 hole academy course for beginners or those keen to improve their game. Built through pine forest, with 7 lakes to test even the most experienced golfer. Limited availability for non-residents of the Gloria Resort Hotels.
This course opened in 2003, an 18 hole, par 72 course in Antalya, approximately 20 minutes drive away.
