The European Tour’s path to Dubai will make a stop at the Turkish Airlines Open in November at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal Golf Course in Belek, Turkey. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because the course was designed by Scottish golf legend Colin Montgomerie and his team.
The Maxx Royal hotel is nothing but suites overlooking the Belek coast, featuring a host of food and spirits options. Fourteen bars, eight restaurants (two of which cater specifically to children) and a patisserie mean attendees can eat whatever they wish. Each restaurant is unique, so if you are attending, be sure to give yourself an extra day or two at the tournament to be able to sample each one. Entertainment at the resort includes activities for the grown-ups, as well as fun areas for the kids.
The Turkish Airlines Open, to be held 13-16 November, 2014, is put on by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and features such heavy hitting sponsors as Titleist, BMW, Rolex, and Club Car. Luxurious accommodations, fine dining, and world-class golf on one of the loveliest courses anywhere – it’s no wonder this event is so widely anticipated.
