Hole-in-one between desert and sea


Hole-in-one between desert and sea

Frankfurt am Main, 5 September 2023

Whether at the recently renovated Steigenberger Golf Resort El Gouna, on the championship course at Steigenberger Makadi or in combination with soothing spa at Steigenberger Resort Ras Soma: in Egypt, golf and vacation can be superbly intertwined, a hole-in-one for body, mind and soul.

Newly renovated: Steigenberger Golf Resort El Gouna

With its expansive 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Gene Bates and Fred Couples, Steigenberger Golf Resort El Gouna is the quintessence of golfing pleasure in Egypt. Overlooking the turquoise waterways of the lagoon town El Gouna, basked by sunny skies all year round, golfers of all levels and handicaps definitely get their money's worth. Bunkers, lagoons and plenty of sand traps challenge each and every player on this championship course. A tricky but immensely pleasurable endeavor.

A wide-ranging and extensive renovation of the golf resort was completed this year. The lobby and all 268 rooms and suites have been refashioned in modern garb, with nature serving as the inspiration. In the hotel's entrance area, warm earth tones mesh with royal blue to then pair off with materials such as high-quality marble and wood. Bathed in light, the lovely rooms immediately grab their guests through their strikingly contemporary design in light beige, brown and grey tones and subtle patterns. All the deluxe rooms and suites on the ground floor have direct access to the pool area.

Three restaurants and four bars cater culinary classics. The Japanese restaurant "Harumaki", serving sushi, teppanyaki and other iconic dishes, is one of the latest additions to the resort. The menu at the "Green Bar", which is directly linked into the golf course, features snacks like bocadillos and tacos for in-between meals.

Tee time at Steigenberger Makadi

The adults-only Steigenberger Makadi hotel is perched amidst an 18-hole golf course, awarded the title of "Egypt's best golf course" in 2019. It is a venue for golf tournaments on a regular basis. The grand finale of the "Samsonite Golf Club Tour" is to be held at the golf course at Madinat Makadi in 2024, for instance. Thanks to its hills and hazards, an exciting final is to be awaited on this demanding golf course – with an ever-present breathtaking view of the Red Sea framing it all.

Steigenberger Makadi also paves the way for newcomers to the world of golf. In the hotel's very own golf academy, certified pros take their guests through the rounds. And a pro shop is at the service of guests to make sure they have exactly the right equipment.

Steigenberger Resort Ras Soma: Golfing and wellness combined

The luxury resort Steigenberger Resort Ras Soma between the coastal towns of Hurghada and Safaga, with its proximity to the golf course at Madinat Makadi, is a paradise for golfers and wellness lovers alike. When it comes to relaxation after a sunny day, the resort's Mividaspa is there to pamper guests from head to toe with wellness treatments, sauna, steam bath, Jacuzzi and sensory showers.

Egypt looks back on a long golfing tradition. One of the oldest golf clubs in Africa was opened here over 120 years ago. The country offers lush-green, internationally renowned golf courses before an impressive backdrop between the Red Sea and mountainous desert landscape and enjoys great popularity in the autumn and winter months thanks to warm temperatures year-round.
