t is always difficult to get the right balance between editorial and advertorial features in a publication, which after all is designed to attract you to travel to Belek and play golf.

Well we are pleased to say that in this issue there is another feature called Girls & Boys just want to have Fun and this theme will continue in future editions. Although Belek is renowned for being a golfing destination, it is also one of the best places possible for a family vacation.

Golf Discovery continues in this edition with an article featuring Perge, an ancient city founded just after the Trojan War, archaeologists now believe Perge could date back to the 5th Millennium BC.

In this issue of the Golf Belek magazine you will find articles and holiday promotions offering various types of golfing options, a Ladies Only golf week to support the

SUENO GOLF HOTEL BELEK The Golfers Choice The popularity of Sueno 5* Golf Hotel has grown steadily year on year since opening in October 2007, there is no doubt that the two exceptional 18 hole championship golf courses, the Pines and Dunes have had a lot to do with this popularity, but don’t be distracted away from the fact that the Sueno Golf Hotel is very much a major attraction in its own right. lightly set back away from the beach, the hotel stands majestically against the perfect backdrop of the four finishing holes from each of the four loops of nine, all of which have water that comes into play.

S

Without question one of the main attractions of Sueno is the ability to walk strait on to the golf courses direct from the hotel itself, no transfers or shuttles are required. 22 Where your golfing dreams come true!

To relax on the outside decking after your game of golf is a treat not to be missed. Sueno Golf Hotel is a smaller hotel than others in the area, but this only adds to the attraction, you soon get a sense of comfort and homeliness, a sense of intimacy that comes from soon getting to know your way around and getting know your fellow guests.

Accommodation There are in total 174 rooms at Sueno Golf Hotel, these consist of 86 Standard Rooms, 71 Senior Rooms and the rest being various types of Suites, the top of the range being a King Suite, complete with Jacuzzi and fantastic views over the golf course. All rooms offer the luxuries to be found at a 5* hotel, plasma TV, mini bar, safe and internet connection.

Board Options Aiming to please all of the guests staying at Sueno Golf Hotel, there are two board options on offer, half board is standard but for a small extra daily charge the All Inclusive option becomes available. Not everyone wants all inclusive, especially if you don’t enjoy a drink or two, so to have this choice is the ideal solution.

Spa and Wellness The well appointed Spa area also includes a Turkish Hamam Bath and a luxurious Steam Bath, all of which are open from 08.00am to 20.00pm each day. The Pines and Dunes Golf Courses As you would expect the Pines Golf course is situated in a very wooded area of Belek, the course is just over 7000 yards off the back tees, being a par 72. There are too many course features to include in this short article but I can assure you these are two exceptionally good golf courses. The Dunes course is somewhat shorter in distance at 6200 yards par 69, but don’t be fooled into thinking this is an easy course, the

fairway undulations and strategically placed bunkers provide more than a challenge for the most competent golfer. In total there are 128 bunkers and 20 lakes that create two magnificent golf courses. The Sueno Golf Hotel offers several packages to stay and play there, at

certain times of the year unlimited golf is offered on both courses, due to the popularity of the Sueno Golf Hotel and the Pines and Dunes Golf Courses early booking is recommended! Email: info@sueno.com.tr Tel: 00902427103000 www.sueno.com.tr

Perge The home of a Mathematical Genius Situated inland for protection against pirates, Perge is one of the foremost archaeological attractions on Turkey's southern coast, the Greeks came from central Anatolia around 1000 BC and settled in Perge along with Sillyon, Aspendos and Side to form what became known as Pamphylia, the “land of the tribes”. There is evidence that prior to this was a settlement by the Hittites, the mysterious lost empire that founded Hattusas, who probably founded a settlement 500 years earlier. ccording to the Classical author Strabo, the city was founded just after the Trojan War, however, the latest archaeological conclusions suggest that Perge dates back a lot earlier than previously thought, according to Prof. Dr Haluk Abbasoglu Director of excavations at Perge, the site could go as far back as the 5th Millennium BC, with evidence of continual occupation from at least the 3rd Millennium BC.

A

Part of the attraction of Perge which is also known as Perga and still pronounced as such - is that it lies on a navigable river, allowing it to function as a port while maintaining a defence against pirate raids. As with all the Greek colonies in Anatolia, the Persians overran the city during the sixth century BC and from 546 to 330 BC, Perge lay under the Achaemenid rule. Yet the inhabitants did not forget their western origins and when the Macedonian Alexander the Great appeared in 330 BC, the citizens sent out guides to lead him to Perge. After the division of the conqueror's empire, the city became part of the Seleucids' domain and it was from around 262 to 190 BC that one of the most famous inhabitants, Apollonius lived.

His writings on sections from slicing cones influenced such great thinkers as Descartes and Newton and coined the words ellipse, parabola and hyperbola, nomenclature for certain curves we still use today, his understanding of Geometry is legendry. It was during later Roman rule that the city also gained notary from visitors who now draw in tourists, Saint Paul, accompanied by Saint Barnabas, preached his first sermon in the city and returned to Perge during his travels. Modern day pilgrims still like to return to the site of the Apostle's preaching to visit the Basilica. Although most of the site is now in ruin, Perge offers a rare chance to study ancient civilisations from across the Millennia, be prepared to spend several hours in awesome amazement at some of the achievements made by the inhabitants of this historical treasure. Take my advise, make the visit with a qualified guide, there is so much to see and equally so much you can miss, Golf & Wellness Turkey would be my recommendation, their details can be found in this magazine. Our next discovery destination is Side……….to be continued. Autumn 2010 GOLF BELEK
