The Montgomerie Maxx Royal is among some of our most requested golf courses in Belek due to the high standard of golf on offer here. The golf course is situated in 104 hectares of pine forest, dotted with sandy ridges. Due to its coastal location, golfers can enjoy a cooling breeze during the warmer months, however the wind can also hinder their scorecard if it captures a wayward shot! This golf course plays to an impressive 6,522 metres long and a par of 72, and also includes eight large lakes and almost seven hectares of bunkers.

The front nine and the back nine holes at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal vary in their characteristics, offering players variety in their round of golf. The front nine holes features water on most of its holes, and although there is less water on the back nine, the test remains just as tough. The Montgomerie Maxx Royal was Colin Montgomerie’s first Mediterranean golf course to design, yet he did not fail to deliver, and he even labels the golf course as one of his favourite designs.
A signature hole at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal includes the final 18th hole, a challenging par-5 that demands both precision and length from players. In order to score well, golfers must succeed in sending an accurate shot over the water hazards to a well-protected green. If golfers manage to play consistently and avoid the deep bunkers on the left, then they can end a fantastic round of golf with a birdie
The course is unusual in that it has six par-5s, six par-4s, and six par-3s, offering a varied round of golf to players. The landscape itself is the main challenge here, with clumps of dense forestry and a mass of water hazards. The challenge is somewhat lessened with the wide fairways; however, they can make shots vulnerable to the coastal winds and if golfers miss the fairways, then they will be punished!
