Of the two courses, the PGA Sultan has been designed with lower handicap golfers in mind. The course has hosted several 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 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.
