Golf Holidays in Egypt
Since the first course opened in Egypt in the late 19th century, golf has continued to grow in popularity with courses peppered along the Mediterranean, Red Sea, and the Sinai coasts. Cyplon Holidays has extensive experience arranging Egypt golf holidays and will help you find the best course to enjoy a round and perfect your swing.Courses on the Red Sea and Sinai coastlines offer particularly beautiful vistas as a backdrop to your game. El Ein Bay and the Little Venice Golf resort team up to create Sokhna Golf Club, a 27-hole championship course along the northwestern coast of the Red Sea. The fairways of the 18-hole championship course El-Gouna located near Hurghada trace the contours of the lagoons located in its namesake town. The challenging La Résidence des Cascades designed by golf legend Gary Player is edged on three sides by the Red Sea and can also provide impressive thalassotherapy treatments to the tired golfer. The Maritim Jolie Ville Golf adn Resort hotel near the Red Sea coast is a great choice for golf holidays in Egypt, as is Steigenberger Golf Resort in El Gouna.
The Allegria in the outskirts of Cairo was designed by Greg Norman and is currently managed by Troon Golf. This course sets a high benchmark for world-class golf in the North African region with rolling fairways and notable water hazards. Also in the outskirts of Cairo, Katameya Dunes – designed in partnership between Sir Nick Faldo, Brian Curley and Lee Schmidt – offers remarkable bunkering that blends sympathetically with the landscape. For those looking for a little bit of tradition, the Alexandria Sporting Club and the Gezira Sporting Club, located in Alexandria and Cairo respectively, boast historical colonial architecture.
