The Gloria New 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.
The 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 give most golfers the opportunity to test out their skills or warm-up before progression onto some of the 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 upmost precision.
The Gloria facility 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 who are looking to work on their short game. The clubhouse includes an outdoor dining terrace for those who are wishing to make the most of the glorious Turkish climate.
