2.. El Gouna

El Gouna had its begin­nings in one man’s search to find the most beau­ti­ful spot on the sea­side to build a house and small boat jetty.

It wasn’t long before Sawiris’ fri­ends, struck by the sple­ndor of the azure waters and dra­ma­tic back­drop of moun­tains, asked to join him. In this way the town slowly blosso­med into the vibrant com­mu­nity it is today, ful­fil­ling Sawiris’ and OHD’s vision of “car­ving para­dise out of the desert.”

A Uni­que Expe­ri­ence on Two Cour­ses
Har­mo­nious inte­gra­tion of the real estate and golf course into the sur­roun­ding land­scape was of prime import­ance, thus plush, tree lined fair­ways, greens, white sand bun­kers and count­less water hazards blend toge­ther in per­fect harmony.

Golf in Mena House Hotel

The Mena House Golf Course is the only golf course in the world directly adja­cent to one of the Great Won­ders of the World. The Great Pyra­mid of Che­ops is tower­ing over the golf course and has mes­me­ri­zed gol­fers for more than 100 years. With the reno­va­tion of the Mena House, the demand for a com­plete make­over of the golf course became appa­rent as well. Fol­lo­wing an inter­na­tio­nal design com­pe­ti­tion, Mena House appoin­ted inter­na­tio­nal golf course archi­tect Bet­tina Schri­ckel and her  long-term men­tor, Robert Trent Jones Jr., to create a new golf course on the old site. Egyp­tian con­trac­tor Civil Homes in col­la­bo­ra­tion with the Tur­kish firm Golf Inter­na­tio­nal are cur­rently com­ple­ting the archi­tects’ vision very skillfully.

The ori­gi­nal scheme of a golf course with 9 fair­ways yet 18 greens and tees for 18 dif­fe­rent golf holes to be played on the rela­tively small site was sup­po­sed to be pre­ser­ved. The new rou­ting inclu­des 11 fair­ways and 4 lakes to offer a much grea­ter variety and diver­sity for 18 uni­que golf holes. Hund­reds of magni­fi­cent old trees have been pre­ser­ved during the rede­sign of the golf course and frame the new fair­ways and greens with their lush foliage. Inte­rest of play due to thought­fully pla­ced hazards, high aes­the­tics, safety and short walks bet­ween greens and tees were the lea­ding fac­tors for the new golf course. All hazards are pla­ced in appro­priate and fair dis­tan­ces from tees and turning points yet in well thought-out loca­ti­ons to chal­lenge gol­fer’ stra­te­gic thin­king. Fair­ways and greens are shaped in a visually attrac­tive ways and incor­po­rate the reward for good shots and punish­ment for less suc­cess­fully hit golf balls. Golf holes lea­ding towards the pyra­mids are less chal­len­ging to allow gol­fers to enjoy the beau­ti­ful view wit­hout too much dis­trac­tion. Paspal­lum grass varie­ties throug­hout the whole golf course pro­vide very smooth and enjoy­able play­ing conditions.

Bet­tina Schri­ckel is a cer­ti­fied golf course archi­tect and regis­te­red land­scape archi­tect with 15 years of pro­fes­sio­nal expe­ri­ence in crea­ting golf cour­ses, golf resorts and cham­pi­onship venues in Europe, the United Sta­tes and Nort­hern Africa.
