The 16th tee at this week’s Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour is definitely one of those bucket-list shots. The shot, which takes place at Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, looks pretty normal at first glance.
But take a slightly closer look and you’ll realize that the tee of the 466 yard par-4 actually resides over a swimming pool.
That’s right. Players walk through the backyard area to get to the tee.
It’s one of the higher-end suites at the Regnum Carya resort, and it’s a pretty fun sight. There are chairs down below, and if you look closely, you can even see a food table floating in the pool.
During a practice round earlier this week, Matthew Fitzpatrick even took a moment to test the temperature of the water below.
It’s a pretty fun sight, and certainly offers one of the most unique views in golf.
