Great time for a golf holiday in Turkey
The five months from May to September are the best time to plan a golf holiday in Turkey. The weather may be hotter for northern Europeans, but it’s not unpleasant. In winter, it is better to avoid the cold weather and rainfall. Although most clubs offer golf all year round, it is better to book your golf holiday during the nicer months.
May and June in particular have the most beautiful weather and are perfect for spending a few hours outdoors.Be sure to book your golf packages in advance, as most golf clubs require pre-booking.
