The course is inspired by the traditional old English style heathland courses in the surrey area outside of London such as Wentworth, Suninngdale, The Berkshire and Walton Heath. Carya Golf Club is open to golf lovers of any age and skill level. The Course is designed to challenge the best players, but at the same time be a thoroughly enjoyable experience for people at all levels.
Carya Golf Club, in Antalya's Belek Region, is the first classic, heathland-style golf course to be built on Turkey's Mediterranean coast. Set on undulating sand hills, Carya is a championship golf course at the heart of Turkey's golf coast. Grown in an extensive nursery on site, Carya's heather shapes define the course into a truly magnificent spectacle. The 7,186 yards, par 72 course, is a demanding test of golfing strategy with free-flowing holes that run between pine and eucalyptus trees and across a dramatic sand ridge. Carya boasts a Player's Course, a world class Golf Academy and spectacular new Club House.
By lighting the last 9 holes out of totally 18 holes, Carya Golf Club offers the opportunity of playing golf at night with the comfort of daylight. In this way, the guests can enjoy playing golf under the warm climate of Mediterranean Sea up until late at night. The ball is clearly visible since lighting is provided from 36 meters high up to 250 Lux and the background is darker. Furthermore, players feel like they play in completely different 9 holes since the course turns into a whole another environment with the lighting.
The Golf Academy consists of 300 + meters driving range, a special 130 meters long putting green, a unique state of the art driving range building including two teaching studios. Fully P.G.A qualified professionals will offer you tuition in many different languages such as Turkish, English, Russian and German.
