It is rare to find a course that affords a view of three countries while playing a round of golf in the middle of the desert. As well as boasting Egypt’s longest hole – the 566,9 meters long 14th – the Taba Heights Golf Course in Egypt is anything but short when it comes to spectacular scenery or challenging golf. The Sinai Mountains, crystal clear azure waters of the Red Sea, Saudi Arabia and Jordan are all visible from the course.

Designed by John Sanford, a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, the course meets American and European architectural standards for golf courses; offering an impressive 6492,2 meters between the 1st and 18th hole. The gentle slopes of the fairways take full advantage of both sea and mountain views; three challenging lakes, as well as several sand bunkers, native desert areas  will test players abilities.

The course is considered more challenging when the back tees are used and less difficult when the remaining tees are used accordingly. Golfers should expect many target fairways and approach shots over lakes, flood canals or wells surrounded by desert green complexes. Poorly played shots can be severely penalized or nicely rewarded.
