Still concerns over Turkey but recent research has revealed that nearly 40 per cent of UK golfers would like to visit Turkey an overseas trip – it has calmed down in this part of the world and golfers are slowly drifting back meaning they are getting some great deals
The survey for the International Golf Travel Market found that Turkey was the preferred destination for nearly two fifths of the golfers asked, and the luxury hotel is offering amazing value on luxury stay-and-play packages, with five-night, four-round breaks available from €550 per person.
Part of the PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club – one of Europe’s premier golf resorts – the Sirene Belek boasts an array of outstanding sports and leisure facilities including the resort’s two world-class 18-hole golf courses, The Pasha and the PGA Sultan – host of the 2012 Turkish Airlines World Golf Final which featured former world number ones Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
Bookable until next November, the eye-catching packages feature two rounds of golf on each course as well as complimentary use of the resort’s extensive practice facilities including a 300-metre driving range.
Four nights’ all-inclusive luxury accommodation at the 442-room Sirene Belek are also included, with prices based on two people sharing a room, while there’s plenty to help guests relax and unwind away from the fairways, too.
Facilities on offer include a 50m Olympic-sized swimming pool, tennis, football, numerous watersports, a water park and kids’ club. A luxury spa is also available while players can sample an array of different international culinary experiences at the resort’s variety of bars and restaurants.
Situated 25 minutes from Antalya in the heart of the Turkish golf riviera, the PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club was the first golf resort in Turkey to feature 36 holes.
Opened in 2003, the par-71 PGA Sultan course measures 6,477m from the back tees and players must negotiate a number of hazards to score well on the narrow, challenging layout, including no fewer than 12 lakes and 122 bunkers.
The Pasha, which was also designed by David Jones in association with European Golf Design, is wider and more inviting as it meanders through a mixture of towering pine trees and woodland.
Alongside the Kempinski Hotel The Dome, the Sirene Belek Hotel is one of two five-star hotels at the PGA National Turkey, with both offering access to a variety of five-star golf, sports and lifestyle experiences.
