At the heart of Belek's success is the quality of its resorts, hotels and golf courses, but the underlying importance of comprehensive customer service plays an invaluable role. Belek is heavily reliant on tourism, and as a result, there are few holiday hot spots which extend a welcome as warm, where the staff will go to great lengths to ensure your complete comfort.

Golf courses designed by famous names like Feherty, Faldo and in particular Colin Montgomerie, whose Montgomerie Maxx Royal has been selected as a European Tour host course, have given Turkey serious international golfing credibility, and make sure that a golf holiday in Turkey will be an amazing value experience.

Belek, where the majority of Turkey’s golf is focussed, enjoys a warm climate for the majority of the year. June-August can become extremely hot, but the rest of the year sees largely ideal conditions for golf.

While holidays to Belek are very popular during the peak summer months, golf breaks are more suited to the slightly cooler seasons, particularly autumn and spring. You can take advantage of lower prices during winter when the mild temperatures are still very much conducive to golf, albeit with a slightly increased chance of rain.
The Turkish Airlines Open has been the penultimate event of the European Tour’s Final Series since the inaugural tournament in 2013. It has been contested over the Montgomerie Maxx Royal on both occasions, with Victor Dubuisson (-24) breaking through for his first European Tour victory in the 2013 event and Brooks Koepka (-17) also shedding his maiden status in 2014 with a one stroke victory over Ian Poulter.
In 2012, the Sultan Course at the Antalya Golf Club welcomed four of the world’s top five players - including Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood and Justin Rose - in an eight-man field for the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final. The medal matchplay event saw Justin Rose emerge victorious after defeating our own Lee Westwood (who fired a 61 in his semi-final victory over Charl Schwarzel) in the final.
