The Peter Thomson designed (TPL) Carya Belek course is the newest addition to the variety of courses here. Its plot is one of the biggest allowing for a long course with challenging holes and a variety of terrain. It remains a classic design and is inspired by traditional heathland courses such as Sunningdale, Walton Heath and The Berkshire in the UK. Off the varied tees the course is fit for all levels of golfers with some unforgettable holes and breathtaking scenary which should easily leave you with the want to play it again. Carya Golf is the first classic, heathland style golf course to be built on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. Designed by Thomson Perrett & Lobb, the international golf course architecture practice founded by five times Open Champion Peter Thomson, it is a championship golf course set on undulating sand hills and cutting through mature pine and eucalyptus forest, at the heart of Turkey’s golf coast. Peter Thomson, said: “This is an exceptional piece of land on which to build a golf course. It is reminiscent of the famous Surrey heathland courses near London that I rate among the world’s best and which I was fortunate to enjoy much success on in my playing days. I am very excited about the prospect of TPL creating a classic, traditional style course in Turkey.” Carya is a classic course, unique to the region, and featuring naturally cultivated heather. Grown in an extensive nursery on site, Carya’s heather shapes define the course into a truly magnificent spectacle. The 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 Golf Course also boasts a spectacular new clubhouse and state-of-the-art driving range.
