Egypt. Round with Pharaoh
When it comes to Golf, in most cases, there are persistent associations with Prim England, aristocratic Wales, Scotland, or, in extreme cases, with the United States. And, of course, I remember the status of this expensive hobby: the faces of playing presidents, famous politicians, or just very wealthy people float before my eyes. Meanwhile, the stereotype has long been broken. Today, Golf has become a more accessible sport, has significantly expanded its geography and even reached African countries. For example, Egypt has become one of the most popular destinations for Golf enthusiasts.
A few decades ago, the world’s leading architects saw great prospects in this country and decided to organize high-class Golf courses on its territory.
Today, Egypt can compete with many European countries. Every major resort city with developed infrastructure has a Golf club, and prices are much lower than anywhere else in the world. For example, buying a kit for a novice golfer in Egypt, you can save about 50% of the cost, compared to a similar purchase in Russia. Such attractive prices are due to the endless flow of tourists from Ukraine, Russia, the United States and Europe. The availability of Golf in Egypt allows you to attract not only privileged guests of the country, but also ordinary tourists with average incomes.
Those who are just getting acquainted with the game, far-sighted Egyptians will kindly offer a course of group lessons with an instructor, for example, on the Red sea, in Soma Bay. For beginners, there are mini-fields for training. In Cairo, the Mena House and field and training courses for convenience are located on site. However, these special fields are not available in every resort city, so you should check this information in advance when choosing a place to stay. If the player feels confident and does not need the help of an instructor, they will be asked for a Golf Handicap Certificates card, which indicates their level of proficiency in the game.
The undoubted advantage of Golf in Egypt is the climate. Precipitation is a rare phenomenon here and the weather, in General, is predicted with high accuracy. Moreover, the mild winter climate allows you to play Golf all year round. The only condition is to have a bottle of drinking water and sunscreen with you when you go out on the field.
Choosing a place to play Golf in Egypt is the right decision for many reasons. In addition to affordable prices and comfortable weather, this trip is sure to be remembered for numerous excursions, exciting fishing, snorkeling, diving and cruises on the Nile. A game of Golf surrounded by the majestic monuments of Egypt will leave an unforgettable impression of the trip.
