This is golf, Egypt-style. An experience without par anywhere else in the world.
Egypt’s golfing heritage goes back to the 19th century; you can still play on three historic
courses first built by the British over 100 years ago, one right at the base of the mighty
Pyramid of Cheops.
But it is a latter-day boom in golf course development and golf tourism which has transformed
Egypt into one of the world’s fastest-growing golf destinations.

An experience without par anywhere else in the world.Egypt’s golfing heritage goes back to the 19th century; you can still play on three historiccourses first built by the British over 100 years ago, one right at the base of the mightyPyramid of Cheops.But it is a latter-day boom in golf course development and golf tourism which has trans-formed Egypt into one of the world’s fastest-growing golf destinations.In just 10 years, it has gone from its original three standard-bearers to almost 20 top-classgolf courses – with many more under construction or planned. The courses are spreadright across the country. You can tee off in the historic hearts of the capital, Cairo,and Cleopatra’s home city, Alexandria; play on courses which are part of huge,self-contained leisure complexes in Cairo’s suburbs; swing away on a pristine stretch of theMediterranean coast; send a drive soaring towards the Luxor mountains where the pha-raohs of ancient Egypt were buried; and sink putts on Red Sea Riviera courses from theSinai Peninsula to the northern and western Red Sea coasts.It is golf of the very highest calibre, too. Famous names including Gary Player, Fred Couplesand Karl Litten have already put their stamp on Egypt’s courses. New projects will bearthe hallmarks of such luminaries as Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Robert Trent Jones Jr,Jack Nicklaus and five-time Open Championship winner Peter Thompson.With such a pedigree, it is little wonder Egypt’s golf is no longer a secret. Having won theprestigious accolade of Undiscovered Golf Destination of the Year from world golf tourismorganisation IAGTO in 2006, Egypt’s international reputation for golf has grown rapidly,as has the number of visiting golfers coming to Egypt.Isn’t it time you discovered the treasures of Egypt’s golf courses for yourself?
