Ain Sokhna to launch the season
The 2014 Alps Tour season will take off next February with two tournaments on the Red Sea north western banks. For the second time in its history, the Alps Tour will visit the Ain Sokhna area. The city is 120 kms southeast of Cairo. This is a major vacation destination for Cairo residents to spend leisure time out of the capital’s notorious summer heat.
The two events will be played on Sokhna Golf Club, part of the Jaz Little Venice Golf Resort. The resort offers a stunning five-star golfing holiday in Egypt. The hotel features 60 pleasantly furnished, beautifully decorated rooms with all the modern amenities. There is a lot of choice for eating and drinking with two restaurants and three bars. Guests have access to a private beach. Facilities include a golf shop, wireless connectivity, two swimming pools and a gymnasium.
The 18 holes Championship Course is designed by the renowned John Sanford & Tim Lobb, famous for their specialized designs and organic approach to golf course creations. This is the first course using Paspalum Platinum for its fairways, greens and driving range. It incorporates native desert into its 6,968 yards’ layout providing stunning bunkers. The second 9 holes course will be mixed with 9 holes of the Championship course to play the second event.
The two events will take place as follows:
– Red Sea El Ein Bay Open: 18th to 20th February 2014
Pro-Am event on 21st of February 2013
– Red Sea Little Venice Open: 24th to 26th February 2014.
Both events, opened to 108 players will distribute a prize money of 30,000 euro each and will fully count for the Alps Tour Order of Merit.
