The course that started the modern boom

Katameya Heights was the standard bearer for Egypt’s new wave of golf development when it opened in 1997, 100 years after the first courses appeared. Laid out on hilly terrain on the south-eastern outskirts of Cairo with some dramatic elevation changes, it was also the first commercial development combining golf and real estate in Egypt and immediately set the benchmark in terms of quality with its Yves Bureau-designed course, elegant clubhouse, extensive leisure facilities and well-appointed villas. The Championship Course challenges all abilities, while the Nine-Hole Course better suits higher handicap golfers – although tricky bunkers, water and a 500-yard par-5 hole still provide a test.
