Six sets of tees

The golf is provided by a near-7,000 yard layout engineered by Gene Bates and Fred Couples, with six sets of tees – three for men and three for ladies – giving a range of options from 4,750 yards. No less originality was put into its creation, with splashes of desert and large bunkers contrasting the blue waters and vivid fairways and greens. The fickle nature of breezes coming in off the nearby Red Sea add to the challenge and require golfers to continually adapt their game.

Among signature holes are the par-5 4th, played into the prevailing wind, and the 9th, another par-5 which plays

towards the landmark clubhouse tower and challenges longer hitters with its narrow landing zone for the second
