Pasha Golf Course Belek
I have been lucky so far to be able to play golf in different parts of the world and recently discovered Turkey. A group of 12 local golfers opted for a week in Belek Turkey playing 5 rounds of golf in the month of December. It was such a hit we decided to venture back this year and play a few different golf courses.
Pasha Golf course
Our first day out was an early start on the Pasha Golf course which is the sister course to the Sultan. Both golf courses are associated with the Siren Hotel so if you want to have golf on your doorstep then the Siren is a good option to play these two courses. Personally, I don’t think that is necessary as the shuttle transfers that you can organise are so good it really doesn’t matter what hotel you stay in or which golf courses you choose.
However, if you are standard club golfers then the Pasha Golf Course is the perfect golf course for your first days golf. It is pretty with some great holes offering open areas for those that slice or hook the ball. Definitely not as tight as some of the golf courses in Belek such as the National golf course. We played this on a rainy day and it still sticks in my mind as a lovely forgiving golf course. The condition of the course like most in the Belek area of Turkey was excellent, with greens running true and defined fairways and raked bunkers.
The clubhouse is a little clinical in comparison to others in the area but not an issue if you are just playing the course and staying elsewhere. Perhaps if the sun had been out and we could have sat outside this would not have noticed. On the day that we played there was a ban on buggies and only carrying or pull trolleys available at 5 euros per round. This is something that you should check before arrival just in case you have anyone in your golf party that must use a buggy for medical reasons as a ban is for everyone.
Overall Pasha Golf course is a great choice for your golf holiday in Belek Turkey and you will not be disappointed if you make this one of your days’ golf. Played off the yellow tees it is a nice opener for a challenging week of golf. For the lower handicap, it also will not disappoint with some great risk and reward holes to try out.
