Cornelia Golf Club, connected to the resort by a short shuttle, is home to a Nick Faldo-designed golf course and a David Leadbetter academy, which is why it is one of Belek's most desirable destinations for serious golfers.
The Cornelia Faldo Course is the first project in Turkey for Britain's greatest golfer of recent generations, and is a 27-hole complex that has garnered considerable praise in its short existence. Faldo's creation is a serious test, especially when tackled from the championship tees, as it measures close to 7,000 yards.
The course is carved through a stunning pine forest, with a dramatic ridge of dunes running through the middle. The 6-time major winner was delighted with the blank canvas for his project, as well as its sandy soil, and his creation has done much to aid the emergence of the outstanding Cornelia Resort as a major player in Belek.
The Faldo Course at Cornelia is ranked as one of the best courses in Turkey
