At Güzelyurt, some 30 miles west of
on the Güzelyurt
to Lefke road in the village of Yesilyurt.
Bordering the coast in lovely
surroundings, Cengiz Topel is is North Cyprus' only golf course.
The course is laid out in two
loops of nine with 17 tees; it plays to a par 70 and measures 5233 yards. The
course is both interesting and challenging with four seaside holes providing a
cooling breeze on the hottest days. The 9 hole course features 2 par 3's, 6 par
4's and a par 5, the par 5 along the seaside has a large palm tree on the
putting surface, the par 4 2nd has a dry water hazard with a 150 yard carry, the
12th has a 130 yard carry along the seaside and back over the said water hazard.
With insufficient water to create greens these are replaced by browns, a mixture
of sand and oil that provides a very good putting surface.
golf April and May are hot, but not unbearably so, as are September and October.
November to March is cooler, don't expect to get a deep suntan and these months
can also see some rain.
In June, July and August, do
not plan to play golf in the mid day sun, earlier tee times are best.
The Cengiz Topel Golf Club is open every day to the public. A warm welcome awaits all guests. A nominal green
fee is charged. Clubs are available for hire at the clubhouse and the best
days to meet and play with the local members are Tuesdays and
