Golf in colourful Tunisia
Golf in Tunisia is seeing a growth in popularity among UK golfers as the country provides everything you will be looking for; the perfect weather, fantastic golf courses and luxury hotels.
Hammamet in the northeast of Tunisia has brilliant golf courses such as the Championship Course at Yasmine Golf Club; a great parkland layout that is built for all golfers with big greens and short rough. The Foret Course at Golf Citrus is one of our favourites in Tunisia, the strategically placed bunkers add a layer of complexity however, the wide fairways and expansive greens make for a fun round of golf.
Port El Kantaoui, south of Hammamet, is another of Tunisia’s great golfing locations. The Sea Course at El Kantaoui Golf Club features elements of a links layout and as the name suggests, has holes that run parallel with the sea. The Flamingo Golf Course requires accuracy off the tee if you want to avoid the thick rough and well-placed bunkers however, the stunning views will be worth any struggles on the course.
