Golfing holidays

For a golfing holiday within Europe, Spain and Portugal were at the top of most golfers’ lists thanks to the choice of hotels, resorts and of course the top quality courses. Now golfers find themselves spoilt for choice with more and more new courses popping up all over Europe as well as further a field.

Belek (Antalya), Turkey

Thanks to the great weather, quality hotels and the stunning championship golf,  it’s not hard to see why the Belek Region of Turkey has quickly established itself as a favourite for British golfers travelling abroad.
