The PGA Sultan in Antalya, Belek is a true test of skill for the discerning golfer, and is an excellent choice when played in conjunction with its sister course, the Pasha. Both courses were designed by award-winning course designer and former professional golfer David Jones, and they complement each other wonderfully by offering up totally unique challenges designed to test your entire skill set.
Of the two courses, the PGA Sultan is that which has been designed with lower handicap golfers in mind. The course has hosted a number of major tournaments over the last few years and this course has been selected as the home of the Turkish PGA. Most visiting golfers relish the opportunity to test their skills in such a beautiful but challenging environment.
The PGA Sultan fits seamlessly into the Belek pine forest environment, and the course works well with natural features to create a tricky, albeit gratifying course. Local marshland has been transformed into beautiful, crystal-clear lakes, which act as water features on many of the holes. Well-placed bunkers have also been cut into the landscape and must be negotiated in order to find the greens. These hazards will test your golfing nerve, with demanding yet rewarding play.
Although the relatively flat 6477 metre, par 71 course is easily walked, it is much harder to navigate your way around with a golf club. Each shot that is taken must be carefully considered, as many holes have classic risk/reward elements. If you can hold your nerve and display the right golf skills, then you can really succeed on the PGA Sultan.
Facilities on site include a practice area, a pro-shop, and a golf academy for those who are looking for professional advice to improve their game. The associated Sirene Golf and Wellness hotel caters for golfers and non-golfers alike.
