New golf courses are being developed throughout Egypt

Egypt’s love affair with golf continues to spur growth, with plans for more courses from the Mediterranean to Cairo and the Red Sea. Planned new Cairo courses include a signature 27-hole Nick Faldo design at new development Katameya Dunes to fully open
by winter 2009/10 and courses by Greg Norman and Nicklaus Design, the design company of golfing legend Jack Nicklaus. Dubai property company Emaar is constructing a Peter Harradine course at its huge $2.1 billion Uptown Cairo project, while its $1.74 billion, 2,500-acre Marassi tourist resort on the Mediterranean coast near El
Alamein will have golf plus 3,000 hotel rooms, a marina, hospital and 5,300 residential units. Add projects like the two Tim Lobb courses at New Giza and El Ein, near Red Sea resort Ain Sukhna, the nearby Porto Sokhna project, second courses at Sharm el-Sheikh and El Gouna, and up to eight courses at new Red Sea resort Sahl
Hasheesh and the future looks very rosy.
