Turkey’s first residential golf project is being prepared for a September opening.
Developed by Turkish firm Oyzer Group, the Kusadasi International Golf Club is located in a popular resort area around 90km south of Izmir, Turkey’s third largest city. Designed by Spanish golf architect Jose Canales, the Kusadasi course, which has been under construction since 2009, measures almost 6,400 metres and has around 130 metres (400 feet) of elevation change with views to the surrounding mountain ranges and the Aegean Sea.
Kusadasi will be the first course in Turkey to be part of a mixed development including villas and apartments. The developments in the Belek region, home to most of Turkey’s courses, are entirely built on land leased from the Turkish government, and thus were not able to include freehold property.
