LykiaLinks Antalya has been voted as one of the world’s Top 100 Golf Courses in Golf World’s annual ranking and holds the honour of being the only Turkish course to be featured.

Complied from votes from a panel of 50 professional golfers, course designers and golf media professionals, the award recognises LykiaLinks Antalya’s status as the only genuine links course on the Mediterranean and marks the course as one of only a handful of mainland European courses to be featured.

Commenting on the award, LykiaLinks Antalya’s Golf Manager Ayhan Gökdemir said, “Our inclusion in Golf World’s ranking affirms LykiaLinks Antalya’s status as one of the best courses in the world and attests our dedication to providing the definitive golfing experience on the Mediterranean. We are extremely proud to add this accolade to LykiaLinks Antalya’s reputation as Turkey’s leading golf resort.”

Designed by famed golf course architect Perry Dye, LykiaLinks Antalya boasts Dye’s trademarks of deep bunkers bordered by railway sleepers and undulating fairways presenting golfers with a typical Dye ‘risk and reward’ style game sure to challenge and delight beginners through to pros.

Set in Belek, one of Europe’s most vibrant golfing regions, LykiaLinks Antalya’s 18-hole championship course offers breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea and Taurus mountains from every point. Spread along 60 hectares of Mediterranean coast, LykiaLinks Antalya resembles the best Scottish links courses, with the added benefit of over 300 days of sunshine annually.

Guests wishing to make the most of their golfing experience at LykiaLinks Antalya can opt to stay in one of LykiaWorld’s stunning duplex Golf Villas, featuring indoor and outdoor private pools with direct access to the course and Clubhouse.
