Antalya and Belek on Turkeys Southern Mediterranean Coast
Antalya with the stunning Taurus Mountains behind it.

Golf courses in this area, initially started to being noted and renowned as 2the Turkish Golf Riviera" in the late 60s and early 70s, the development of Antalya International airport, just 30 mins from most resorts and the rise of the budget airlines as firmly established this destination as a Golfing mecca for the Millennium.

Sueno Golf, a fantastic resort

The destination boasts miles and miles of  golden sand beaches, calm azure seas and glorious year round sunshine. A rugged coastline and stunning views of the magnificent Taurus mountains offer a
dramatic contrasting sensational vista. hotels are numerous along this coast, the majority 5 star and All Inclusive, many with their own golf courses attached to the resort. They seem all to have been designed and developed with a quality and style commensurate to the location. We stayed at Sueno Golf and it was superb and amazing value for money.. Golf course development and construction has been carefully planned as to integrate into the location. Many noted and Internationally renowned architects have been utilised here.   Indeed the standard is very much on a par with both the Costa del Sol and the Algarve.

Belek, a nice interlude from golf, buy anything here,

Antalya harbour with its narrow alleyways with ancient roman walls is particularly picturesque. Boutiques, bazaars, restaurants bars and cafes await, a middle east environment with a Mediterranean vibe offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some quality serenity whilst enjoying the local ambience.

No shortage of great restaurants


Just outside Antalya are two exceptional historic Roman and Greek sites, Aspendos and Perge, no visit here is complete without a visit here o see the stadium and temples , over two thousand years
old.  The coast and mountains offer some rugged sensational lPERGEooking waterfalls, it is an area of particular natural beauty.  It woud be a mistake just to come here and Golf.

However with over a dozen, first class, exceptionally well designed, well maintained courses, the visitor is really spoiled for choice in the GOLF available. This really is a GEM of an area to play.

GRAND CANARIA is famed for its weather all the 
Year Round and therefore an ideal 
Social Golf Destination to escape
 the grey and cold of a UK Winter.
On this trip we stayed at the opulent Gloria Royal 
overlooking Amadores Beach and busy a
 5 euro taxi trip from the bustling resort of
 Peurto Rico with its many bars and restaurants. 
Its also ideally located just one mile from
 the highly rated ANFI TAURO GOLF COMPLEX.

    This Von Hagge Complex featuring a fantastic, Championship course, ( pictured here )   also has a quite fine 9 hole executive par 3 course as well.. Hire Clubs featured Titleist, Calloway and Taylor Made.... and where in fine condition. The Pro Shop was professionally manned and well stocked. Indeed all the facilities where quite excellent.

  This is in my opinion one of the most spectacular course in the Canaries and indeed Spain.   The 18 hole Arizona styled Championship Course is surounded by a quite magnificent rocky valley, giving several sensational vistas. The lush vegetation, palm trees and many varieties of cactus plants, lakes and waterfalls create quite a stunning backdrop that makes each hole particularly unique.  Each hole as numerous tees and this allows for an attractive game for all levels. Anfi Taro Golf certainly exhilarated and captivated TSG.

The signatory hole the long Par 3, 6th hole with the Atlantic Ocean as the back drop
