Gulf of Aqaba
The 18 hole championship course is par 72 desert style overlooking the Gulf of Aqaba. The course, designed by John Sandford, a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, measures 7100 yards with 5 tee positions.
The golf resort has a driving range, short game practise area, bar and snack restaurant, fully equipped pro shop, shower and changing facilities as well as coaching and caddying services. Golf clubs can be hired and stored.
The course has a beautiful Sinai mountain backdrop setting overlooking the azure waters of the Red Sea. Golfers can expect many target fairways and approach shots over lakes, flood canals or well surrounded desert green complexes. The striking landscape has prompted the management to make mandatory use of golf carts at all times. The first hole eases towards the vast mountain range which sets the scene for the first 6 holes. The sixth is a long uphill par 5. The seventh meanders through desert and rocks towards the Red Sea. The short eighth crosses desert and flood canal and features the largest bunker on the course. Hole 12 is cradled by the mountains and has ten carefully placed bunkers. The 14th at 640 yards is the longest championship hole in Egypt. The green of the 17th and tee of the 18th lie less than a small pitch from the waters edge where a resident camel lies as a spectator for your final drive.
