[Colin] Montgomerie has agreed to join forces with Papillon Hotels to build a facility on the coastal resort of Belek, Antalya which will include an 18-hole championship golf course, a 600-bed hotel and between 25 and 40 holiday villas.Oh they'll be rushing to sign up for that one.
"I am delighted to be associated with this Papillon Hotels golf course at Antalya and building what we hope will be yet another good tournament venue," the 42-year-old Briton told reporters at the BMW Championship on Tuesday.
"You never know, one day on our ever-expanding European Tour we might have a Turkish Open played on this course."
Montgomerie also designed the Carton House venue used for last week's Irish Open at Maynooth, County Kildare.
"I have got 12 to 15 courses in place and another half a dozen or so more in the design and construction phase," he said.
"I just wish there was more than 24 hours in a day. I'm very, very busy trying to play tournament golf and having a business side to my life."
The Scot said the new course, which is due to open late next year, would be similar to his previous designs.
"Most of my courses have a unique feature in that they have challenging hazards, meaning bunkers, and this will be no different," said Montgomerie.
Is that sort of a dumbed-down version of "challenging for the pro but still playable for the high handicapper?"
