Beginners delight at free golf lessons at PGA National Turkey

PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club is leading the drive to boost the number of people playing golf by offering free golf tuition to all guests staying at the luxury resort in 2018.

From now until the end of the year, people taking a break at either of PGA National Turkey’s five-star hotels – the Kempinski Hotel The Dome and Sirene Belek Hotel – can enjoy a complimentary golf lesson from the resort’s expert team of professionals led by director of golf Michael Jones.

Taking place every Monday evening at the resort’s golf academy, the fun sessions provide the perfect introduction to the game for beginners, with the basic fundamental skills all covered in the hour-long lessons. All equipment including golf clubs, balls and hotel transfers are included, while further tuition programmes are also available to book for hotel guests during their holidays.

“It’s a well-known fact that golf clubs have found it a struggle to attract new players to the game, and this a great way for people to try their hand at a new sport in a fun environment,” said Jones, who took up his new role at PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club in January.

“With first-class practice facilities, fantastic weather and a fabulous setting, PGA National Turkey is an amazing place to learn golf. The resort prides itself on the role it plays in helping to grow the game and we’re delighted to give our hotel guest this opportunity to get into golf.”

The first golf resort in Turkey to feature 36 holes and situated 25 minutes from Antalya, PGA National Turkey Antalya Golf Club is regarded among Europe’s premier golf resorts.

Its extensive facilities include two 18-hole golf courses – the PGA Sultan and The Pasha – as well as two hotels, the 176-room luxury five-star Kempinski Hotel The Dome and the five-star, 442-room, Sirene Belek Hotel.

Complementing the layouts are excellent practice facilities including a 300-metre driving range and academy, while the resort recently joined a select group of courses to receive the official endorsement of The Professional Golfers’ Association, being renamed as PGA National Turkey.

Away from the fairways, hotel guests can enjoy access to numerous other sports and leisure facilities including tennis, football, various watersports, kids’ clubs, fabulous pier and two luxury spas, while the resort also offers an array of opulent culinary experiences at a variety of bars and restaurants.
