This course could be something very special. With quiet possibly the most spectacular views found of any course I’ve played. The front nine is a good test, similar to most continental Europe championship layouts, with a couple of cracking par 3’s thrown in for good measure. The 8th and 9th in particular are impressive and the testing par 5 is a apt way to finish what is a strong front nine.
The back nine is however the reason to visit this course. The 10th sets you up for what is going to be a really tough test of golf. Target golf, coupled with narrow and demanding tee shots will test even the most accomplished golfer. If you have played the Nicklaus course and St Mellion, then you will be able to gauge the task ahead on this very tricky back nine. Ravines on one side and rock faces (on the other side) guard most sides of the fairways as you wind your way through the cliff side golf.
The only reason my rating isn’t higher is the relatively poor condition of the course. This course doesn’t compare to the condition found on the more prestigious courses found in the Belek region. In summary, worth the visit for the views alone. If the condition was top notch - this could be a world beater!
