Golf holidays in Egypt


Arguably the world’s first great cultural heritage, Egypt needs no introduction. But head for the sun-drenched Red Sea coastline at any time of year and you can now swap pyramids for putters, diving for driving and temples for panoramic tees. With the arrival of 8 new golf courses in Hurghada’s Soma Bay and its surrounds, areas already popular with scuba divers and kite surfers, Egypt’s coastline is quickly becoming a dream destination for winter golfers. The 5 star hotels here offer indulgent spas, great food and all the water activities you could ask for, and the golf courses range from simple and flat to challenging and lagoon-laden: ideal for players of every standard. Easily accessible from the UK, and fully equipped for a pampering stay, Egypt will soon be synonymous with luxury golf holidays. Get in early before the rush!

This is a wonderful desert style golf course that is unique in that it also offers a selection of holes that run alongside the oceanfront. It was designed by Gary Player to USGA specification using Kikuyu grassed fairways and Bermuda Tifdwarf greens. It is very flat and with 4 different tee positions it is very playable, however be warned; the waste bunkers and water hazards will give you plenty of trouble and the greens are like lightening. Good practice facilities and a welcoming clubhouse add to the experience, and when all added up this is a course you will be happy to play all week.
