El Ein Bay, a resort style golf course, designed by Thomson Perrett & Lobb, the international golf course architecture practice founded by five times Open Champion Peter Thomson with partners Ross Perrett and Tim Lobb, is on target to open for play in Spring 2011.

Incorporating a large practice facility, the 6,100-metre golf course is conveniently situated just 122km from Cairo and will initially see nine holes open for play in Spring of next year, followed by a further nine holes in 2012. for play in Spring 2011.

Over recent months, Thomson Perrett & Lobb (TPL) has been finalising the detailing work to a significant number of holes on the par-72 layout, whichsits within a 237 acre plot of land in the heart of El Ein El Sukhna Beach Resort, a first-class development designed as a weekend retreat for Egyptians and a leisure destination for visitors from overseas.

Tim Lobb, Principle of TPL, said: “It is always exciting to be part of a large development in a ‘new’ golf market, and Egypt is rapidly emerging as a genuine alternative to the traditional golf destinations of Spain and Portugal.

“At El Ein Bay we have created a golfer’s golf course which offers a challenge for all levels of player without being too daunting. It was always our ambition to design a course that allowed visitors and residents a friendly environment in which to play golf, with an emphasis on delivering a memorable, positive experience that will encourage them to return.”

The El Ein Bay Beach Resort is focused on merging a modern sense of convenience and comfort with the beautiful natural coastline. The resort sits on the Red Sea, one of the warmest in the world, and the beautiful all-year-round climate allows for the development to be surrounded with healthy greenery as well as maintaining the golf course in prime condition.
