This November, Regnum Carya in Antalya, is set to host the Turkish Airlines Open Golf Tournament for the third year running on the award winning 18 hole Carya Golf Course. Taking place from 1st - 4th November, this is the sixth tournament out of eight in the European Tour’s Rolex Series, the premium category of the European Tours.
Now in its sixth year, the Turkish Airlines Open will once again see the crème de la crème of the golfing world take centre stage to compete for the $7 million trophy, including last year’s champion Justin Rose.
For the third year running, competitors will once again face the unusual prospect of a “rooftop tee-off” on the 16th hole of the course, located on the roof of a Baron Villa at Regnum Carya.
Ali Safak Ozturk, President of the Board of Regnum Carya said: “We are delighted to be hosting one of the most prestigious tournaments on the golfing calendar at the Carya Golf Course for the third year running. We will once again be welcoming some of the most prolific golfers in the world, further consolidating Belek’s status on the international golfing forum.”
Chosen as the top golf destination by IAGTO in 2008, Regnum Carya houses two world-class golf courses – The Carya Golf Club and the National Golf Club. Celebrated as the first illuminated 18 hole course in Europe, the Carya Golf Club will be hosting the tournament whilst the neighbouring National Golf Club offers 27 holes for spectators and guests to enjoy during the competition.
