The Gloria Verde Resort is an all-inclusive five star golfing resort situated in Belek, Turkey. Known for its fantastic range of 45 holes, which can keep golfers content the entire holiday. In between swings you can take in the beautiful surroundings of Gloria Verde’s own extensive gardens and private stretch of beach.
The 45 holes are available on three contrasting layouts; The Old, The New and The Verde. The Old, is heavily tree lined and is the shortest course, The New is wide and open, with some stunningly put together holes and The Verde has a mixture of the aspects of both the other courses – so is great for those who want to start pushing themselves a little further.
Another golf holiday in Turkey is the Sueno Golf Hotel, also situated in Belek. After opening in 2007 this five star resort has quickly developed an excellent reputation as one of the leading golf hotels. The hotel boasts two 18 hole courses, the Sueno Dunes and the Sueno Pines, all designed with the golfer in mind. The natural sand dunes and surroundings have been used to carefully sculpt the courses, with the Pines created as the more challenging one as the holes are framed around pine trees.
Golf in Turkey if becoming more popular every year, and both courses at Sueno are a great addition to the other courses on offer. Since 2007 the courses have matured, updating every year as golfers continue to get better at their game. The Sueno Dunes course is more open than the Pines but still has a number of pine trees situated around the course. When playing, you’ll notice the sand ridge that runs through the middle of it, combined with the strategic waste areas also around the edge of the course you’ll understand why the name came into mind.
The Pines is the sister course at Sueno Golf Hotel, and is the tougher of the two. The course measures over 7000 yards from the back tees, and as well as physically it’s also visually challenging, with rugged fairways placed through a layer of pine trees. Over the few years that this golf course has been open, it’s managed to leave quite the impression with some major golf events destined to take place in the near future. So, book your perfect holiday and experience your favorite sport on the luscious green courses!
