Egypt is a truly enchanting and mystical holiday destination. A cruise along the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, taking in the Valley of the Kings – where the Pharaohs were laid to rest – and various temples along the way will remain etched in the memory for a lifetime. But even if Egypt is a dry country, there are now more than twenty golf in Egypt with the majority constructed since the late 1990s. Architects such as Greg Norman (Allegria), Nick Faldo with Schmidt Curley Design (Katameya Dunes) and Gary Player (Cascades at Soma Bay) have unveiled layouts here in Egypt but the most prolific architect in modern times is undoubtedly American John Sanford. So if you travel in Egypt don't forget to play a round.
