“Greens still Poor”

Reviewed February 21, 2014

We have avoided Lykia for all our past trips due to the poor reports on the greens, but Last summer had been told all was good now, so as this was one of the few courses in this area we hadn't played, it was added to this years tour. On arrival, first impressions were wow! Particularly as all the other courses were wooded, and the vast expanse of open ground and sleepered banks and bunkers looked impressive. However, I accept we we were early, teeing off at 8.30' arrived 7.30, but the clubhouse was empty! no reception staff, even the pro- shop which was open, was totally in-manned. They arrived about 8.00. After organising everyone's tickets and trolleys, we headed to the putting green, to find, although appeared very long grass, a smooth surface, but as expected with the length of the grass, a very slow surface. We took a look at the nearby 9th green, only to see the same. No starter appeared so we teed off, like a few courses in this area, they have waste areas and bunkers so we play if there's a rake it's a bunker. The general course layout was good and fairly well maintained, and the fairways were very good, but unfortunately the greens were very strange. As I said earlier, they look to be smooth and run reasonable, but it felt like you were putting on astro turf, and very slow, and this was pretty much the same all round. Overall the. Course was ok, nothing special but different, but previous concerns of the greens remains, there is now plenty of grass on them but they need cutting much shorter. When we got back to the clubhouse, only drink was available, no food not even a snack (a bag of crisps) and the drinks kept changing in price, seemed the waiter (who resembled someone oft he street) made his own prices up. The resort has now been taken over by Club Med, so I,m not sure if they are in a state of change or what, but they do appear somewhat unorganised.

I have been golfing in Belek Turkey since 2006 and enjoy many of the Golf Courses with a bias towards Montgomery and Faldo courses. However this year was my first chance to play the Lylia Links Course and it was the highlight of my holiday. Previously i was put-off by comments that the trip from Belek would be 30 minutes, but it was only 20 and well worth it. The course was in top condition, a true-links challenge and a welcome change away from the tree-lined courses of Belek. I would recommend that all golfers give it a try during your next trip.

Visited in August so the green fee was greatly reduced. Course layout is superb but a lot of work going on around the course which took a shine off the round. I will definitely visit again as it is a proper links course, very challenging even in low wind.

Our group consists of 8 golfers ranging from 10 to 28 h/caps. We have played this course in previous years when we have been to Belek and it is definitely one of our favourites. If the wind is up which it always seems to be then it can make your driving look very embarrassing. if you have a high ball flight I would suggest that you practice low ball flight shots as members of our group who could do this achieved better scores. The greens were fast and you have to bump and run a lot of shots unless you can get the ball to check up. Take plenty of water as there is no shade. Only down side is the price of the pro shop one of our group wanted a logo shirt and was quoted €200, needless to say he left that.
