Istanbul Golf Club

Istanbul Golf Club

When thinking of the oldest golf clubs in continental Europe, Turkey doesn’t immediately spring to mind.  But, did you know that one of the 10 oldest Clubs in Europe is in Istanbul?  Istanbul Golf Club opened as Constantinople Golf Club back in 1895. 

While in Istanbul, Menekse and I had the sincere pleasure of visiting the historic Istanbul Golf Club (IGK).  But getting to IGK is no small feat.

Istanbul.  Just the name itself stirs your imagination!  As the capital city of 3 former empires, Istanbul has everything.  A city of unmatched history, home to 15 million citizens plus, Istanbul is a true melting pot of sights, sounds, tastes, and cultures.  But, for everything that it has, what Istanbul doesn’t have is golf.
