The Golf Club at El Gouna
El Gouna, Red Sea, Egypt
In El Gouna it is high season all year round. The USPGA-sized 18-hole championship golf course (until June 2000 2x 9-hole courses) poses a delightful challenge to every golfer.
Whether you tee off on an early summer morning, at midday in January, or on a late spring afternoon, the sun is guaranteed. Even in the warm summer temperatures. El Gouna benefits from the dry, desert climate that keeps the humidity low. And there is always a sea breeze to keep you cool on the course.
European pros offer lessons to beginners and seasoned golfers alike. The well equipped pro shop offers a choice of top golf clubs for rent to those who would rather leave their clubs at home. For those looking for a little competition, the club organizes regular tournaments.
Gene Bates, associate of Fred Couples, designed the El Gouna course to be accessible to every level of golfer, from the tourist who wants to learn the game, to the advanced golfers playing in a Pro Am tournament. By having five different tees and a careful placement of bunkers, lagoons, and desert rough, the course plays well to every level of golfer. The winds, predominately from the North, make certain holes that look straightforward a challenge for every golfers. The 18 hole golf course thrills advanced as well as beginner players. It bridges the LTI - Paradisio hotel to the Kafr El Gouna, with a walkway meandering through the vast expanse of green.
If you need a little physical relaxation after the game, there is health spa in the clubhouse featuring sauna, steam bath, massage and a series of pools for simply relaxing.
Designed by Michael Graves, this clubhouse has excellent views over the course and is located near the first tee and practice range. It facilitates a Pro-shop and a fitness club including a well-equipped gymnasium, 3 plunge pools, massage, sauna and a beautiful Turkish bath.
At the terrace of the Grasshoppers Bar, light snacks and drinks are served.
The club will be available for members and hotel guests only, although a daily fee arrangement will also be possible.
The 19th hole Bar is integrated into the Clubhouse Restaurant with a panoramic view over the golf course. The place to share all your golf stories with your buddies.
