Course Review and Comments

If you are in Instanbul and want to get get some golf in this is you best bet. The next closest course is about 30mins outside of town. This one can be reached by the Metro (4 Levent)/Bus and then a walk. You go through a Military "Guard Gate" and it seems they are obliged to let tourist in. They took and kept my passport which made me nervous, but they returned it on the way out with no problem. I did not make any reservation, but if you might want to call ahead.

You head to the Clubhouse and into a nice proshop. The "deal" I got was rental clubs, caddy and 9 holes for 130TL ($75). I am sure they are overcharging, but I have no idea how to negotiate and just forked it over.

The course was very nice in comparison to what I expected. Great grass and rolling hills. I don't think there are any Par 5's. (They just do not have room.)

There was a great driving range that they offered, but I did not use.

My caddy spoke zero English, but it was helpful to have him show you around. They would not let me go out without one, but the members are free to roam.

The course itself was great. Very nice. Great views. Great holes. Great greens. You do repeat some holes though.
