The Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup, a prestigious global event celebrating Turkish hospitality, unfolds throughout the year, drawing 8,000 players from 73 countries to compete in 117 qualifying tournaments.

The crème de la crème of these tournaments will converge for the grand finale at Gloria Golf Club, Belek, in December.

This grand event marks a significant milestone for Gloria Hotels & Resorts, as it prepares to host the world’s largest corporate golf event.

Conveniently located just 30 kilometres from Antalya International Airport, Gloria Hotels & Resorts sprawls across 212 hectares of pristine landscape.

Comprising three distinct five-star hotels – Gloria Golf Resort, Gloria Verde Resort, and Gloria Serenity Resort – the resort recently underwent a lavish multi-million-euro refurbishment, elevating its allure to unprecedented heights.

Renowned as a premier golfing destination in Turkey, Gloria boasts three world-class courses: the illustrious 18-hole championship layouts of the Old Course and New Course, alongside the nine-hole Verde Course.

Complementing these masterpieces are state-of-the-art practice facilities, including the groundbreaking Gloria Golf Training Academy, a modern clubhouse, and a well-stocked pro shop.

This amalgamation of amenities cements Gloria’s status as the largest and most comprehensive golf resort in Turkey.

Participants of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup Grand Final will have the privilege of traversing both championship courses during two practice rounds, preceding the thrilling competitive rounds later in the week.

This promises an unparalleled golfing experience amidst the breathtaking vistas of Gloria’s meticulously manicured greens.

Now in its eighth glorious year, the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup made its debut in 2013 alongside the DP World Tour’s Turkish Airlines Open.

While the DP World Tour has been absent from Turkey since 2019, the Turkish Airlines World Golf Cup Grand Final has steadfastly continued its legacy at Gloria Golf Club, even amidst the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
