Kaya Palazzo, formerly known as Kaya Eagles, is an ultra modern style 18 hole resort course that was designed by award-winning architect David Jones, the man behind the two layouts at Antalya Golf Club including the revered PGA Sultan golf course. David Jones said, “Kaya Golf Club was a very interesting project for me. I often see golfers frustrated by monster courses of 6500 meters or more in length. At Kaya I had a compact site to work with and decided to aim for a shorter layout which would be enjoyable for all golfers, including those who do not hit the ball vast distances. I think I have achieved that“.

The Kaya Palazzo is very much in the same mould of the classic Belek golf course; cut through pine forests, 6500 yards and where the use of water and sand help shape the layout. Whether you are already a keen golfer or a complete beginner, this is the place to hone your skills. The Kaya Palazzo course has quite a few dramatic holes where the player must choose between risk and reward. The shorter Par 3s provide interest because of the strategically placed bunkers and the subtle contours on the greens. The snow-capped Taurus Mountains provide a spectacular backdrop to the course through the eucalyptus, olive and pine trees and crystal blue lakes.

This good solid course is not a walk over, and still requires a strong nerve. The Kaya Palazzo Golf Club course has many interesting holes and features eucalyptus trees and a 750.000 m2 pine forest. A good holiday course and also ideal for those with lower handicaps to play. The clubhouse is smaller and more understated than many of the others in Belek, and is a refreshing change from some of the more opulent designs.
