18 man-made lakes

That they should have chosen this location at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula is easily understood when you venture out onto the 6,587-yard course. The rugged Sinai Mountains provide a memorable backdrop, especially when they turn rose-pink from late afternoon on. Indeed, the natural assets of the course make as much of an impression on you as the layout. Hardly surprising, given that some 5,000 trees and shrubs were planted and 18 man-made lakes, 16 ofthem salt water, were created. The greenery is maturing
nicely now and, together with the abundant water, the vegetation has helped to attract many birds. Of 15 migrating bird species now found on the course, nine are listed as endangered.
