One of Egypt’s longest courses

The Championship Course is among the longest in Egypt at over 7,200 yards, and can be played from four sets of tees not including the championship marks. Karl Litten’s design is tighter than it appears at first glance. Stands of trees and large waste sand areas planted with colourful shrubs separate the narrow fairways. More challenges are provided by mounding and lakes, two of which provide grandstand finishes to the 9th and 18th holes, directly in front of the Hilton Pyramids hotel, which has rooms with balconies overlooking the course. The longest, and arguably the most scenic, hole is the 580-yard, par-5 6th, which doglegs left

around an encroaching lake.
