Egypt recommended for winter golf holidays
5 Jan 2012

People planning golf holidays during the winter months have been encouraged to consider visiting Egypt.

The country is 'perfect' for a golfing trip at this time of year, according to the national tourism agency, owing to its pleasant climate and 'stunning courses with historical backdrops'.

Popular locations where visitors can enjoy some time on the fairway include the Alexandria Sporting Club, which dates back to 1898, making it one of the oldest venues of its kind in Egypt.

Almost all of the club area is occupied by the golf course, which is open to tourists as well as local members.

Other options include El Gouna's 18-hole championship course in Hurghada, which is surrounded by mountains and sea, and the Taba Heights Golf Resort on the Sinai peninsula, where novices and professionals can play while enjoying views encompassing three countries.

The Red Sea holiday hotspot of Sharm el Sheikh is also home to a par 72 championship-standard golf course that is situated just ten minutes away from the international airport and Naama Bay.
