With over 300 days of sunshine guaranteed every year, Egypt is an ideal place to play a round of golf. If you were looking forward to playing golf in Marsa Alam however, you may find yourself disappointed in the short term.

Although there are plans in place for Marsa Alam golf resorts, the first of which is likely to be located at the nearby Port Ghalib development, there are currently no golf courses in the local area. For those who’ve expectantly brought along golf clubs as well as diving equipment, the only real option is playing the Royal Valley Golf Club in Luxor around 3 hours drive away.
