Top British golfer to tee off in Turkey

One of England’s all-time best female golfers, Laura Davies, is the one to watch at the Turkish Ladies Open Championship on May 7.

Davies is the current leader on the Ladies European Tour Money List, and now she’s hoping the open will bag her her 71st international win.

Not only known for her wins on the Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour, Davies’s swing is legendary and she’s said to be the longest hitter in women’s golfing history. This incredible strength, coupled with her focus around the greens, has earned her accolades and adoration around the world.

The Coventry-born sports star will face a talented field of 108 of the best female golfers in the world, who are travelling from 25 countries to compete. Other stars include Sweden’s Carin Koch, Germany’s Anja Monke, England’s Becky Brewerton and Denmark’s Iben Tinning.

Belek’s National Golf Club has endured an intensive course-conditioning programme in preparation for the event. The championship course at the club was designed by Ryder Cup player David Feherty.

Spectators are welcome to watch the tournament, which starts with a Pro-Am tournament on May 6, followed by competition rounds on May 7 and 8. The top 60 players following these two rounds will vie for the top spot in the May 9 final. It’s free to go along and watch – great news for anyone with golf property in Belek!
