.........a touch of Turkish delight
Golf in Turkey !...Who would have thought of it?..Turkey is rapidly developing as a serious golfing destination, especially in the Southern Coastal areas-indeed, with the superb climate, wealth of history, and warmth of its people, these regions are set to become a haven for the traveling player.
Since the opening of the National on 18 November 1994, the Club has become a popular tourist destination attracting golfers from all corners of the world and it has taken only six years to win international recognition in the year 2000 rankings of UK’s Golf World magazine as the number 42 and in the year 2001 rankings’ as the number 39 golf course in mainland Europe, in Germany’s Die Welt magazine as the number 9 golf course on the European Mediterranean coasts in 2000 and also, has been rated 16th best golf course in the world by the readers of Germany’s Golf Journal magazine in March 2002 and 14 th in 2003.
The both courses have been constructed by top American international constructors; and compliment extensive practice facilities and fully serviced Clubhouse.This, coupled with an international management team and PGA golf professionals, ensure that the National can rightly take its place as the leader in Turkish golf, and can put many traditional European competitors to shame.
