Carya Golf is the first classic, heathland style golf course to be built on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. Designed by Thomson Perrett & Lobb, the international golf course architecture practice founded by five times Open Champion Peter Thomson, it is a championship golf course set on undulating sand hills and cutting through mature pine and eucalyptus forest, at the heart of Turkey’s golf coast.
Peter Thomson, said “this is an exceptional piece of land on which to build a golf course. It is reminiscent of the famous Surrey heathland courses near London that I rate among the world’s best and which I was fortunate to enjoy much success on in my playing days. I am very excited about the prospect of TPL creating a classic, traditional style course in Turkey”.
Carya is a classic course, unique to the region, and featuring naturally cultivated heather. Grown in an extensive nursery on site, Carya’s heather shapes define the course into a truly magnificent spectacle. The course is a demanding test of golfing strategy with free flowing holes that run between pine and eucalyptus trees and across a dramatic sand ridge. Carya Golf Course also boasts a spectacular new clubhouse and state-of-the-art driving range.
The unique feature of Carya is of course the fact that the course is floodlit throughout allowing night-time golf to be enjoyed during the heat of the summer and extending daylight playing hours in the cooler winter months.

What our customers say
First class golf
the clubhouse is spectacular, one of the best i have ever been in. Greens were fairly quick but true to their lines. played the course in june and there was maintenance taking place and lots of groundsmen on the course, but not a major problem as they were all friendly. regardless, staff were extremely helpful, couldn’t do enough for you!
