The Gloria golf club includes 45 holes in total, spread across 2 18 hole courses, and the 9 hole Verde course. Visitors can also make use of the Gloria Golf Academy and Driving Range, with bays for up to 48 players to practice their driving skills at any one time. There is also an 18 hole putting course for those looking to work on their short game. The clubhouse includes an indoor and outdoor dining terrace with selections of delicious dishes and drinks for those wishing to make the most of the glorious Turkish climate.
The Old course is hidden away amongst the beautifully dense pine forests of the Turkish countryside, at the foot of the Taurus Mountains. It is perfectly situated for a peaceful round of golf and is an excellent choice for those who are looking for something which seems like it is “away from it all”, without having to sacrifice on quality or top-of-the-range facilities.
The course design means that many of the holes are so sheltered that you would believe that you were the only golfers on the whole course, which surprises many players, as it remains one of the most popular courses in the Belek region. This is ideal for those who want to focus fully on playing their best game.
The Gloria Old course is one of Belek’s most well-established courses, and since its grand opening in 1997, the golf complex has continued to grow and expand. The Old Course is now joined by the 18-hole Gloria New course, and the 9-hole Verde short course, making this complex the ideal destination for a varied golfing vacation in combination with 3 Gloria Resort choices.
The Gloria New Golf Course is part of the multi-course Gloria Golf complex. Whilst it is not as well-established as its older sister course, the Gloria New Course has already become a firm favourite amongst those who are travelling to the region for golf. Opened in 2005, the course has already hosted a number of international competitions, including the European Senior Tour Classic in 2007 and the World Amateur Team Championship in 2012.
The Gloria New Golf Course has been designed to test a range of different skill sets, and the pleasing balance between par-threes, par-fours and par-fives will mean that you will have the opportunity to use every club in your bag if you want to come home with a good score. Although it is not the hardest course in the Belek area, it has been designed to allow most golfers to test their skills or warm-up before progression onto some harder hitters.
Like many of Belek’s courses, the Gloria New course is nestled amongst the area’s natural pine trees, with beautiful rolling fairways and stunning vistas. What sets the Gloria New course apart from its contemporaries is the use of dramatic elevated tees on some holes, tricky doglegs which require careful thought and challenging water holes which call for the utmost precision.
I spend 5 days in Gloria Golf Resort and booked a 4 days golf training. Is was very quiet in my week, was told that usually there are about 400 green fees sold a day. The golf club is beautifull, nice club house, good food, friendly staff, excellent training facilities and a great Pro. Thank you Onur ! Point for improvement: shuttle drivers to the Gloria hotels behave ... as bad ad normal cap driver in Turkey.
These are 3 beautiful golf courses which i played every day, Due to very poor golfers playing very slow but thinking they were professional a round can take 5 hrs. This i could cope with but not the same golfers not repairing there divots and pitch marks, Whether these golfers bring in money or not, marshals should be bringing it up to there attention to embarrass these idiots. There is pitch repairers available free at reception
We r visiting Belek regulary in Nivember for many years with friends ant their families. We stayed in many hotels but Gloria Verde was our all time favourite. We booked the same place this year but due G20 summit we were upgraded to Gloria golf. We liked this one too. It is much bigger complex and has many facilities and restaurants. It is great for children too (kids club, babysitting). This hotel seems a bit older and we missed the charm and attention to detail from the hotel we booked originally. The food and drinks are very good quality but rooms are not up to standard of a five star hotel. Too small, paper walls, vardrobe so tiny that no shelves or drowers can be fitted, This really was an issue for us, we are a family with a child and an infant and this room of 10 m2 was deffinitely not an upgrade in our opinion but overal we had a great time.
Our group of 12 golfers played 2 rounds at each (New and Old) of the courses. Both courses were in good conditions. We had mixed handicaps (11 - 28). The Old course starts with 2 holes over water so make sure you are ready from the off. 2nd hole (Par 3) needed a 150 yard carry to the green with practically no bail out area. Overall the front 9 was much longer and harder than the back nine. The New course was a bit more forgiving with lots of water features from the 8th onwards. Both courses were tree lined but not much rough so not too many lost balls if you can keep out of the many water hazards. Our group was split on which course they enjoyed the best but all of us wanted to come back. Weather was very hot so glad we had buggies ( 30 Euros if staying at Gloria hotels) but very much needed. The New course is probably the best to play if you are a high handicapper.
This golf course was 1 hour drive from my place in Side. It was perfect set-up with 3 different couses. I played on 2 of them and they were close to perfect. The area of clubhous and driving ranch was perfect. Kindness of working people and good service was all around! The only negative was that I think it was little expensive.
I first played this course in the first week it opened back in the mid to late 90's. Since then they have added 1 further championship courses a 9 hole course and a fantastic club house. Played the old course again this August and the course is simply stunning. The staff are incredibly nice and very helpful. The manager of the Gloria complex is English and incredibly accommodating. Thank you. If you intend to holiday in Belek this year or next, pack your clubs ........ You will not be disappointed.
The golf was good, but the Food and Service in the club house restaurant excels, possibly the best food we had in belek
