Kaya Golf Cars.jpgThe Kaya Eagles Golf Resort in Belek, Turkey, which opened in November last year, has selected Ransomes Jacobsen as their preferred supplier for course maintenance machinery and E-Z-GO for golf cars.

The 18-hole course was designed by Irish golf course designer and Master PGA Professional David Jones on a compact site, which although relatively short at 5,900 metres provides a test for golfers of all abilities.

The course is close to the Kaya resort and includes many water features including six lakes, all faced with rock and extensively landscaped. Facilities include a state-of-the-art clubhouse, a 280 metre long driving range, 700 square metre practice putting green and a soon-to-be-completed golf hotel in the middle of the complex.

UEFA President and former captain of the West German football team, Franz Beckenbauer, was the guest of honour at the official opening.

John Moore, Ransomes Jacobsen's Regional Sales Manager commented, "This success comes close on the heels of a similar agreement at Cornelia Golf Club, with its Nick Faldo designed 27 holes. Turkey is definitely an emerging market for golf and we are obviously delighted to be associated with these prestigious new developments. Being in a position to provide both machinery and buggies was an important factor in securing the business."
