Lykia Golf Links
In November 2008, the Lykia Golf Links opened its gates to welcome the golfers of Belek to the first ever links golf course in Turkey. This fantastic golf course has lived up to each and every expectation, thanks to the Dye Designs team led by Perry Dye, the son of the famous golf architect Pete Dye. The Lykia Golf Links is a vibrant addition to the many golf courses in Belek, making it an essential item of any itinerary for a golf break in Belek.
The creation of the Lykia Golf Links immediately attracted a lot of attention from links-lovers, especially those looking for a fantastic round of golf on a links golf course in warm weather. Golfers have never walked away from the Lykia Golf Links without feeling their expectations were not lived up to, with a range of hazards and a fantastic landscape, constructed by Perry Dye. Perry Dye is responsible for some of the best golf courses in Europe, including the New San Roque in Spain. His architecting skills certainly did not falter when it came to the creation of the Lykia Golf Links, as it would be fair to say he successfully created one of the best golf courses in Belek.

The quality of the Lykia Golf Links can be seen in its popularity; if golfers want to be in with a chance of playing this fantastic golf course, they ought to act fast! The Lykia Golf Links is like no other golf course in Belek, and is situated slightly further away from the Belek ‘golf strip’ that lies on the coast. Instead, it sits on a landscape filled with natural sand dunes next to a river. The architects of the golf course incorporated the best of the natural features of the landscape into the fantastic links golf course that stands today. With a rough terrain and a mass of sand dunes awaiting any wayward shot, golfers will find every aspect of their game challenged here.
Golfers can appreciate stunning coastal views throughout the 18 holes here, and holes 13 to 16 are located directly running along the coastline. The hazards on the fairways are typically characterised by sand dunes and pot bunkers, yet the challenge here also comes from the length. The Lykia Golf Links spans out 7,536 yard from the back tees, meaning that golfers must play with a balance of precision and length in order to score well.
