Discover golf travel in Turkey!
Turkey is a transcontinental country covering the Anatolian region in Western Asia and Eastern Thrace in the Balkan Peninsula in Europe. These regions are separated by the Strait of Turkey (Bosphorus, Sea of Marmara and Dardanelles). With the Black Sea to the north and the Aegean Sea to the west and the Mediterranean Sea to the southwest, Turkey borders Bulgaria and Greece to the west, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia to the northeast, and Syria, Iraq and Iran to the southeast.
Turkey offers a variety of destinations for travelers: from the vaulted, minaret-filled horizon of Istanbul to the Roman ruins along the west and south coasts, from the rugged coast against the mountainous backdrop of Lycia and the wide, sunny beaches of the Pamphylia to the cold, snow-capped mountains of the east, From the crazy “foam parties” of Bodrum to the Middle Eastern cities of Southeast Anatolia, from the green and misty mountains of the eastern Black Sea to the vast steppes of Central Anatolia, there is something for everyone.
The region around Belek on the Turkish Riviera is of particular interest to golfers and has become a Mecca for golfing tourists. Here you will find more than 10 first class golf courses as well as many high quality golf resorts. The weather conditions for golfers are ideal, especially in spring and autumn, while in the summer months you can expect temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. The Turkish Riviera is also an ideal destination for golfers in the winter months: the less crowded golf courses and the mild climate invite you to play golf in a relaxed manner!
