NEWGIZA to open in 2018

NEWGIZA to open in 2018

 

After an extremely complex, four year long build, the NEWGIZA course in Egypt is close to completion and will be ready for a soft opening in spring 2018. Designed by Thomson Perrett & Lobb, the course is part of an enormous real estate project by developer NEWGIZA. With views of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the course is surrounded by an extensive walking trail to make it an attractive resource for golfers and non-golfers alike.

“NEWGIZA is the most complex project I have ever been involved with,” said Lobb. “The sheer scale of the 550 hectare complex, the huge landscaping element in the golf course and the fact that the site was all just rock have meant that it has been four years of constant hard work for everyone involved to get the course built. Now we’re coming to the end of that process, I can say that I’m incredibly proud of what we have created, and incredibly grateful to everyone that has helped.”

Ahmed Maged, deputy CEO of NEWGIZA, said: “From the start of our project, the golf course has been a vital element of the overall development. It’s wonderful to see it almost completed, and we are massively thankful for the effort Tim, and all those on the build team, have put in.”
