Cascades Golf Resort, Soma Bay, Red Sea


The Cascades, Soma Bay’s Golf & Country Club, provides a sporting and social focal point for the Peninsula’s community, centering on a truly stunning links-style golf course.

The Gary Player designed course is the first in many ways in Egypt. Not only is it the first golf course open for play on the Western Red Sea coast, it is the first championship golf course in the Middle East designed by one of the “Big Three” (Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer).

At the inaugural tournament, Gary Player described the course as “the next Pebble Beach” with its extraordinary setting on the edge of the Red Sea, one green actually jutting out into the sea.

Although it is a desert course, water plays an important role in challenging the golfer. By using lakes, flowing streams and the surrounding sea, Gary Player has created obstacles to challenge the amateur as well as the professional. Holes number 9 and 18 end in front of an imposing waterfall and the first of a series of cascading lakes, for which the golf course is named.
