The Cascades Golf Resort Spa & Thalasso is located in Soma Bay, on Egypt's Red Sea Riviera.
Winding around the lovely resort is The Cascades Golf Championship course, a signature Gary Player design that has in its short existence established a reputation as one of the finest courses to be built in recent decades. The great showman that he is, Gary Player has created a glorious course that is as spectacular to look at as it is to play.
Into the arid scrub of the Egyptian desert, South Africa's golfing pioneer has formulated a verdant and challenging championship course that is unlike any other. The sand creates a fantastic contrast with the water that laps at the course's fringes, setting the scene for Player's monumental achievement.
The well travelled designer has incorporated influences from a number of locations in his creation, which features elements of links and desert golf assimilated with fantastic results. Egypt has in recent years become an increasingly attractive option for golf holiday makers, predominantly due to developments like that at the Cascades Golf resort, where the Black Knight's championship golf course reigns supreme.
The new development leaped to the head of the list of the country's most admired golf holiday destinations, and the hotel itself has been recognised by the Leading Hotels Of The World association.
