A spectacularly rugged desert-style championship golf course

In early 2006 Faldo Design was selected to create a 27 hole ‘desert oasis’ styled golf course over spectacular duneland on the outskirts of Cairo.

Faldo's thoughts

“I’m delighted to be working on what is our first design project in Egypt – indeed our first in North Africa. It is a wonderful site and there is a really special atmosphere about the place – the sense of history is almost tangible. I’m confident that, once completed, this 27 hole facility will go on to be recognised as one of the very finest in the region. What I feel that I can especially bring to the project is a certain level of strategic insight that will help to define and colour the golfer’s experience. The courses I design are very much aimed at the thoughtful, imaginative golfer, and it is precisely these players that will get the most out of playing at Katameya Dunes."
