Turkey is one of the most up-and-coming golf destinations in the world. With its fantastic history, cultural diversity and perfect all-year-round climate it’s no wonder why it’s so popular with golfers from across the globe.

One of the main golf holiday destinations, in Turkey, is the town of Belek nestled on the Mediterranean coastline, near Antalya, it really is heaven for golfers looking for some fun in the sun on some of the best fairways around.

Golf courses in the area have been designed by some of the most famous names in the game including: David Feherty, Colin Montgomerie and Sir Nick Faldo. Faldo’s design, the Cornelia Golf Club, is attached to the superb Cornelia Deluxe Resort and it is, without doubt, one of the best in the country.

Originally from the Home of Golf, I have been lucky enough to hack my way round some of the finest courses Scotland has to offer. Previous employers include the world famous Gleneagles Hotel - where I once recommended a half pint of local lager to Gary Player.
