Course Review and Comments
The Pro-shop manager called, John Dent, who is a pro Golf instructor himself, is an unethical, rude and arrogant individual.
I approached him to purchase a full set of Golf clubs as I figured he would be the best person to help me choose the most ideal items for me. The 12-club set he put together didn't have a driver!!! When I approached him to make amends on the purchase, he was rude and unethical and STATED THAT ONE DOES NOT NEED A DRIVER TO PLAY GOLF AND THAT A 5 WOOD THAT HE HAD SELECTED WOULD DO THE SAME JOB!!! I guess Tiger woods should take John Dent's advice and alter his method and never opt for having a DRIVER in his bag!! Thus far, I have never called anyone A THIEF but I guess there is a first time for everything.
Additionally, the quality of lessons with the instructors is EXTREMELY LOW. Worse yet, the instructors portray a sense of boredom and demotivation and overtly state that they are seeking other lines of work in general - outside of Golf!!! I ask you: How can a beginner get excited in assuming Golf as a lifelong hobby, pastime or sport when your first instructor is so low in morale?
Notwithstanding the above, the instructors solely watch the student swinging and make minimal corrections waiting the lessons to end - intermittently hitting a couple of balls to show and satisfy their own dexterity. There are no CDs, no booklets, no videos shot during students work for students to analyze their swings and stances etc prior to, during or even at the end of any lessons!!! All this is a pathetic exhibition of incompetence and complacency.
Unfortunately, John Dent, is also responsible for the training and the methodology used in lessons conducted in Antalya Golf Club as he is supposedly the most senior instructor there.
I ask ALL American Golf lovers to stay FAR FAR AWAY from this Golf course and opt for other Golf courses in Belek who do employ ethical, professional and enthusiastic staff members. We are going to try Karya next. Wish us luck...

Great course and great conditions, Out of the 10 courses I've played in Belek the Pasha has the best greens. My only critiche is it was a bit slow 4.5 hours but 5 hours seems to be normal in Belek now

Sixth year I have played this course and it was in the best condition ever. Greens were fast and true. Normally a easy scoring course but the quick greens and tricky pins made it a real challenge from

A beautiful course, very well kept, with nice wide fairways.
Ideal for a mid/high handicapper.
