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, greatly expanded its geography and reached even African countries. So, one of the most popular destinations for Golf lovers was Egypt.
A few decades ago, leading architects with a worldwide reputation 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. In every major resort town with developed infrastructure there is a Golf club, and the prices are much lower than anywhere in the world. For example, buying a kit for a beginner golfer in Egypt, you can save about 50% of the cost, compared with a similar purchase in Russia. Such attractive prices are due to the endless flow of tourists from Ukraine, Russia, USA and Europe. The availability of Golf in Egypt allows you to attract in addition to the privileged guests of the country, and even ordinary tourists with average incomes.
Those who are just getting acquainted with the game, visionary Egyptians 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. Cairo’s Mena House and field and courses for convenience are on site. However, these special fields are not in every resort town, so it is necessary to clarify this information in advance, choosing a place to stay. If the player feels confident and does not need the help of an instructor, he will be required to card Golf Handicap Certificates, which indicates his level of ownership of the game.
The undoubted advantage of Golf in Egypt is the climate. Precipitation is a rare phenomenon 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-going out on the field to have a bottle of drinking water and sunscreen.
Opt for Egypt, choosing a place to play Golf – this 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.
