Egypt Golf sites, information, tours, prices and online booking
Egypt Golf is a hundred year old tradition since the Gezira Sporting Club and the famous Mena House Golf course near the Giza Pyramids first opened in the late 1800’s. By the 1950’s, there were seven world class golf courses in Egypt. Golf declined and most of these courses disappeared with the changing political climate: only Mena House (under renovation), the Alexandria Sporting Club and Gezira survived the changes. Luckily, golf in Egypt has experienced a tremendous boom over the last decade. All in all, there are 20 top-scale operational golf courses in Egypt’s major cities and European golf competitions have included Egypt among world-class golf destinations.
New real-estate developments located in the suburbs of Cairo or at a close distance from the city host amazing greens, these include the Katameya Dunes Golf Course, the Orange Lake Golf Club , and the Allegria Golf Course, among others. Moreover, Red Sea and Sinai coastal destinations boast some of the most scenic courses to play at: Red Sea vacationers enjoy paradisiacal surroundings of crystal clear lagoons at El-Gouna Golf Course , whereas others experience what it is like to play golf on a peninsula in the amazing Cascades Golf Resort in Soma Bay.

Golfing at the Royal Valley Golf Club in Luxor is a truly inspiring experience being just a few moments away from Luxor’s spectacular ancient landmarks. Situated on Luxor’s East Bank a few km away from the city center, the Royal Valley Golf Club and its very elegant clubhouse offer a wonderful combination of year round sunshine and desert golf. Nestled amidst the biggest Mediterranean coast real estate project, the Porto Marina Golf 18-hole championship golf course is equally excellent for beginners and golf professionals. One of the main attractions of this course is the grass itself, a salt-tolerant “paspalum grass” that is used on this green – for the first time in Egypt – to preserve fresh water. This particular type of grass is also known to ease the putting and give the ball a better roll.
Nestled between the clear blue waters of the Red Sea and the spectacular Sinai Mountains, with views over the Gulf of Aqaba, the Taba Heights Golf Resort offers an exciting 18-hole golf course with raised fairways and numerous bunkers. A course that is well suited to both beginners and more advanced players.
