PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club is ready to enhance its position at the forefront of the European golf resort market, with latest figures revealing that golf bookings in 2019 are 15 per cent up on the same time last year.

The leading golf venue in Belek – which features two 18-hole championship courses – is on target to surpass the total it posted in 2018, with green-fee availability already more than 50 per cent full.

The number of rounds played at PGA National Turkey last year rose by almost 95 per cent to 63,000 and, with the courses proving just as popular with individuals and groups from all over Europe in 2019, particularly in the UK, Germany and Scandinavia – the resort is forecasting another record-breaking 12 months.

“We enjoyed a tremendous year in 2018 and the signs are that the next 12 months are going to be even better,” said Michael Jones, director of golf at PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club. “With two world-class golf courses and an array of other exceptional facilities, the resort has everything needed for a five-star golfing break. The feedback that we’ve received from all our guests about the courses has been second to none, and we’re looking forward to going from strength to strength over the coming months and years to come.”

Situated 25 minutes from Antalya, PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club’s facilities include two 18-hole courses – the PGA Sultan and The Pasha – as well as two hotels, the 176-room five-star Kempinski Hotel The Dome and the five-star, 442-room, Sirene Belek Hotel – which has undergone a €2m room refurbishment programme this winter.

Complementing the layouts are excellent practice facilities including a 300-metre driving range and academy, while the resort recently joined a select group of courses to receive the official endorsement of The Professional Golfers’ Association, being renamed as PGA National Turkey.

Away from the fairways, hotel guests can enjoy access to numerous other sports and leisure facilities including tennis, football, various watersports, kids’ clubs, fabulous pier and two spas, while the resort also offers an a variety of bars and restaurants.
