Developed by the Galalah Touristic Investments Company, the course at El Ein Bay became fully operational in 2013 when the second nine holes of this wonderful 18-hole facility were unveiled. 

And maximising resources, Sohkna Golf Club makes use of the Little Venice 9-hole layout next to this course to offer visiting golfers the opportunity of playing all twenty seven holes at a very plush modern golf complex. 

El Ein Bay was designed by the respected firm of Thomson Perret & Lobb and constructed by King Golf International – the company that built the Nicklaus course at Samanah in Morocco and Greg Norman’s Allegria – using platinum paspalum grass supplied by Atlas Turf International.  

The three par threes at holes 5, 8 and 13 offer great variety, measuring 167 yards, 203 yards and 131 yards respectively from the back markers. Short par fours on the back nine at the 10th and 15th catch the eye but the star of the show is the 427-yard 6th, played to an island green where anything other than pinpoint accuracy will result in disaster.

TPL principal Tim Lobb says of the new course: “Ein Sokhna is a resort town about an hour from Cairo – the closest beach to the city – and is frequented mostly by Cairo residents and expats, so we have designed the course to be playable by the widest possible range of golfers. It’s not the longest course, but I believe it will provide a wide variety of shot making options, whatever your level of ability.

Despite being the shortest par three on the course, the 13th hole still packs quite a punch. The water carry over the lake to a green surrounded by bunkers gives the golfer a lot to think about on this short iron tee shot. A back left pin position is the most difficult with a large mounding protecting the entry to a green that’s not overly contoured so a birdie putt is very achievable here.”
