Belek, the golf capital of Turkey, has developed into a dream destination for golfers and non-golfers alike. Less than 20 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from Antalya, the fifth largest city in Turkey, it would not be over flattering to make the comparison and give Belek the title of THE ST. ANDREWS OF TURKEY!

First and foremost, for golfers, a choice of some of the most majestic golf courses in Europe if not the world (and more are being built!). Carved out of pine and eucalyptus forest and designed by golf’s most eminent architects, Belek's golf courses are destined to join the elite group of Europe's acclaimed courses. Any golf connoisseur who wishes to claim that they have played the best golf courses in the world will need to have visited Belek before doing so, such is their excellence.

To complement the five-star golf courses there are over 30 five-star resort hotels, all but a few of them located on the magnificent long beach of fine golden sand. The hotels vie with each other as to which can excel and offer the most comprehensive facilities. As a consequence nearly every hotel has an outdoor and indoor pool, the majority more than one. Every conceivable spa, health and fitness treatment including Turkish bath, sauna and Jacuzzi are available. Tennis and squash courts, football pitches and a multitude of water sports not to mention water slides make Belek’s hotels a family holiday haven. As you would expect from a country so family orientated, children are especially catered for, with a wide range of activities and entertainments. Virtually every hotel has a Kid's Club, some hotels even have bowling alleys and a cinema!

The villages of Belek and nearby Kadriye have remained relatively unchanged and are worth the short journey to visit the plethora of bars, restaurants and shops that provide their fare at a fraction of the cost in the U.K. The inquisitive and cultural may enjoy visits to the historical Aspendos, site of the worlds best preserved Roman amphitheatre, the ancient city of Perge with its wealth of architectural monuments or a journey into the snow-capped mountains.
No mention of Belek would be complete without reference to the diverse flora and fauna, paramount of importance being the phenomena of the Caretta Caretta turtles who migrate from all over the world to lay their eggs on Belek's beach every year.


It is worth noting that virtually every course in Belek is owned by an affiliated hotel,  the exceptions being the National Golf Club and newly opened Carya Golf Club, which are totally independent. Obviously, the golf courses give preferential green fee rates, tee times and a free shuttle bus service to guests of the affiliated hotel and therefore it is recommended that golfers play the majority of their golf on the courses connected to the hotel. Whilst we will be delighted to arrange golf on any of the courses not connected to the hotel of your residence, this will increase the cost of your holiday and we cannot guarantee prime tee times.

One of Belek’s unique attributes is the compact nature of the resort. The golf courses are literally separated by a boundary fence or access road. To travel from the Tat Golf complex at the western extremity of the resort, to the Robinson Nobilis course at the eastern end, takes less than 15 minutes. Given that most hotels operate a shuttle bus service, even to courses other that their own, this results in Belek’s great bonus…THERE IS NO NECESSITY TO HIRE A CAR!

However, for clients who prefer more independence or intend to explore the surrounding area more thoroughly car hire can be arranged.
