Carya Golf Club is Turkey’s first heathland inspired golf course, located close to the Mediterranean Sea in Antalya’s Belek region. Through the dedication, vision and passion of Founder Mr Fikret Ozturk the golf course and adjoining Regnum Hotel and Spa has become one of the premier golf and leisure destinations in Europe.
The golf course is designed by Thomson Perrett & Lobb, the international golf course design practice founded by five time British Open Champion Peter Thomson. As you would expect, a very special and memorable round of golf awaits players.
Carya Golf Course is a naturally beautiful golf course set on undulating sand hills. Inspired by the classic heathland courses found in the UK where Peter Thomson enjoyed much success as a player in the 1950’s and 1960’s, the spectacular Par 72 layout measures 6,605 metres (7,223 yards) from the championship tees, with free flowing golf holes running through the pine forest.
Each hole offers variety and challenging strategic options, rewarding golfers who think their way around the course. Just like the traditional heathland courses, a tactical approach is required, and finding the correct side of the fairway from which to attack the green is often more important than distance off the tee.
The greens are large, undulating and fast. Many are characterized by multiple plateaus, creating ‘greens within greens’. Depending on the wind and the flag position of the day, every hole can be played in a multitude of ways.
What makes Carya Golf Club special is the attention to detail, especially the use of heather (the defining feature of traditional heathland courses) and bunkering. More than one million heather plants have been added to the existing areas of indigenous heather to create Carya’s distinctive look, evident from the tees. The dramatic and highly detailed bunkers create a visual experience that is both rare and inspiring, their natural shapes blending beautifully with the gentle slopes. But don’t be distracted by the bunkers’ beauty, for danger lurks in these hazards.
