Turkey admitted to amateur golf championship

Chairman of Turkey's Golf Federation, Ahmet Agaoglu, said Monday that Turkey's application to host the World Amateur Golf Championship was accepted.

Speaking to AA, Agaoglu said that Turkey continued with lobbying efforts to host the World Amateur Golf Championship.

"Turkey is competing against Italy and Austria, countries that have also applied to host the world championship," Agaoglu noted.

The World Amateur Golf Championship takes place every two years with the participation of golf players from more than 100 countries and is being organized by the International Golf Federation (IGF).

"Turkey deserves to host many golf organizations based on its excellent grounds and sportive successes," Agaoglu said.

Touching on Turkey's efforts to increase sites for golf players, Agaoglu stressed that "Belek (a resort town in the southern province of Antalya) has a special place in Turkey. Belek is a very different site. It is one of those unique places in the world where golf could be played on a coast that is 10 kilometers long."

Turkey was the host of European Champion Golf Clubs Championship in 2005 and would host the same championship in 2008 and 2009, Agaoglu added.
