Quality of Course
Value for Money
Faldo is an evil......
Played the three variations of this course, and all in my group had very unprintable words to say about Nick Faldo for the way he has designed the course, but what can you expect from a perfectionist.
There are three loops of 9 and these go to make up the Prince, Queen and King courses. Take your pick of the tees from championship to ladies - none are easy. All the fairways trickle off to the sides and dump you in the pine needles or dirt. The bunkers are well sanded and mainly deep - none of that shallow stuff that lets you see your ball all the way to missing the hole, you need to get out to see it run away! The greens are quick when you don't expect it, the half an hour later, they will slow down - but they are true.
These may be championship loops, but in reality it is just a resort golf course. You will take 5 hours to play 18, if you are playing more than a couple of rounds, make sure you buggy some of the time.
There is a food wagon that pops round a couple of times during your round, all the staff out on the course are friendly, but the staff in the bar are more interested in their mobiles, and cannot really be bothered to serve you. That said, you would probably play whilst staying at one of the parent hotels, so go back on the shuttle and drink on your 'all-in' package.
The question of course is would you play again - if my next trip to Turkey allows an extra round, this one would be on the cards, but it would have to be after the Sultan.
