Turkey’s largest city and port on the Turkish Black Sea coast; Samsun will soon open world's first artificial golf course. The city’s mayor Yusuf Ziya Yılmaz said that the 9-hole golf course will be the world’s first golf course on an artificial island.

Mayor said that the construction for the golf course started a year ago and soon it will be completed. “We are building the largest 9-hole golf course in Turkey. Built on 370 acres land, 250 acres will be for golf and 120 acres will be used for landscape and recreation area. Also, there will be three artificial lakes.
