Various resorts and hotels in Belek now give the glorious opportunity to their guests to play at these courses. Now you can play with a golf pro or celebrity on one of these courses.

  2. The golf course should have a significant portion of good two shot holes; two to three drive and pitch holes. It should also feature at least four counts of one shot holes across the course.
  3. The greens and the tees should be a stone’s throw apart. You should not have to walk around too much for getting to the tee from the greens. The arrangement of the course should be such that, you need to step slightly forwards from the garden to the next tee.
  4. The greens of your course need to be rolling. There should be no actual hill climbing, but there should be excitement in the game.
  5. Beautiful surroundings are a must for every course. Not all courses can have swelling greens or swan ponds. However, your course should not be a man-made strip of a fallow land either. All artificial features should also have a natural appearance.
  6. The course should always take a weaker player’s need into account as well. The loss of a stroke should not mean the end of a game for him. He should always have an alternative route open to him.

  10. The course should bypass the necessity to search for lost balls. This is an added annoyance for any player on any course. While a player can accommodate for the loss of a ball once during an entire game. Looking for balls during most of the game make for less of golf and more of a treasure hunt. Excellent courses have GPS friendly features and easy visibility. Resorts also employ caddies who can take care of balls and other accessories during an ongoing game.

Make sure your resort is in walking distance from the course if not adjacent to the golfing premises.
