Hole 17, Taba Heights Golf Course
Egypt

The prestigious Taba Heights 18-hole championship Golf Course was designed by John Stanford, a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. The course measures an impressive 7100 yards with elevation ranges from sea level to 70 meters.

To set up a golf course in the middle of the desert is quite a challenge on its own:The grass type utilized, Seashore Paspalum, was chosen for its environmentally friendly nature in that it requires less water, reduced fertilization and pesticides applications and does deliver a great surface for golf playability. To ensure that the grass is well maintained, miles of irrigation piping have been underlain, which have been produced by the resort's own recycling plant utilizing discarded plastics from the hotels.

The Golf Course offers impressive views of the Sinai Mountains and across the Red Sea to the Israeli, Jordanian and Saudi Arabian coastlines.
