The 18-hole, par 72 Litten course carefully balances the lush fairways with the natural desert landscape, creating an enjoyable course design for golfers of all skill levels. The course itself follows the natural topography of the land, with lagoons creating natural water hazards on many of the holes.

Aside from golf, you can also try land sports such as tennis and horseback riding. 

Each of the holes features four sets of tees, affording golfers the chance to improve their game, or simply enjoy their current level of play. But choose wisely, as different strategies are needed depending upon the tee choice, and the lagoons and lakes, along with the sand bunkers and native desert areas will provide a test for even the most seasoned player.

The Resort features a fusion of Mediterranean chic with traditional Nubian style, with 145 guestrooms, residences, and villas to accommodate guests with all the essential amenities and services.

Be sure to take advantage of the ability to combine the pleasures of one of the most luxurious towns in Egypt with your golfing vacation. The Ancient Sands Resort features several special offers to combine your passion for golf with the luxurious atmosphere and amazing views of the Red Sea Lagoons.
