Sports Tourism

Sports tourism is considered a significant means of tourism attraction, thus adding further pleasure to all tourists. The most important sporting tourist sites are: al-Gezira Horse Riding Club, Golf Club, Shooting Club and the sports clubs in the Red Sea area and the water sports clubs in Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh.

Golfing Tourism

This is a new and very special kind of tourism that attracts important tourists. Egypt offers golf amateurs a chance to practice their favourite sport at distinguished courts located in unique tourist areas as Luxor, Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada.

Egypt has more than fifteen golf courts now, Ten of these are entitled PGA, the matter which qualified Egypt to be chosen by the International Organization of the Golf Trips in 2006 to host the Italy championship finals held on Stella De Mary Courts in al Ein el Sokhna with the participation of the private sector. The Egyptian and Italian Media praised the preparations of the finals in an Egyptian atmosphere and according to international standards.

One often hears of the scenic views surrounding golf courses around the world. Walk into any real golf enthusiasts home or office and one is likely to see beautiful landscapes in Scotland or England, or even the US. But no where else in the world can one play golf in the shadows of the Great Pyramids, or play 18 holes in the morning, and then visit the mountain where Moses passed down the ten commandments in the afternoon. And there are few rain checks. In Egypt, the weather is almost certain to accommodate ones desire to play golf (and perhaps, sight seeing, shopping and other activities might accommodate a bored spouse at the same time). And for the sporting man or woman, there are many other activities such as scuba diving in some of the best spots in the world. Egypt has some very wonderful courses including the Gary Player course at Soma Bay on the Red Sea. And most courses either adjoin, or are a part of fabulous hotels, such as the one at the Mena House in Cairo.

The Alexandria Sporting Club In Alexandria, Egypt

 

Built in 1898 and used during the British occupation, the Alexandria Sporting Club is one of the oldest sporting clubs in Egypt. In 1952, it was taken over by the state, converted into a national club (like the El Gezira Club in Zamalek) and was managed by the Chairman of the Club, Mahmoud Hamdy. Today, the golf course stands on 97 feddans, 97 percent of which constitutes the total club area. It is a flat course with tricky bunkers and can be played by beginners as well as experts. The club also features four restaurants, the Club House Restaurant being the most luxurious, and the Hppy Land restaurant serving the children's playground. It also offers party catering.

 

Members pay 5 LE for 18 holes, while temporary members pay 10 LE to play. Visitors must be accompanied by a member and pay 50 LE.
