The Robinson Nobilis Golf Course is Dave Thomas’s first venture into South-eastern Europe, and it does not disappoint those who are familiar with his trademark style. Opening in 1998, the course was at the head of the Turkish golfing boom, and it has continued to excite players ever since. It makes an excellent warm-up course for those who are looking to progress on towards some of the region’s tougher challenges.
The par 72 course provides a challenge for individuals of golfing abilities and containing a wide range of different challenge to suit a host of different golfing styles. The narrow, tree-lined fairways are routed over sandy coastal landscapes, and lead towards large, wide, bent grass greens. Whilst it is a fairly flat course, visiting golfers should be under no impression that this course is a simple walk in the park. Par is protected by strategically placed water hazards, a number of tricky dog legs and white sandy bunkers. Players are forced to assess the conditions and carefully consider ball placement before making each shot if they want to make it home with a pleasing score.
The location of this course is truly stunning, with the snow-capped Taurus Mountains acting as a backdrop for round. 7 lakes are integrated into the course design and golfers follow the progress of the Acisu River around the course as they play. Belek’s natural pine forests also play their part in creating a wonderful, peaceful setting for a round of golf.
Off of the course, you can access golf lessons from experienced golf trainers. The beautiful Roman-style clubhouse is an excellent choice for refreshment and relaxation after you have finished your round, and it is just a stone’s throw from the 18th green.
