We also have a helpful comparison chart.
It is difficult to call a capital city with two golf courses a ‘golf resort’ - and yet that can truly be said of Tunis, the capital of Tunisia. Tunis features one very old golf club - Carthage Golf Club which dates to the 1920’s and one very new one, the Robert Trent Jones II Residence Golf Club which opened in 2008. The adjacent Residence Hotel & Spa is truly one of the most luxurious hotels in the world, and a stay here will be remembered for many years to come. During your first visit, we recommend combining golf with a spa day so that you can experience the relaxation for yourself. In Tunis there are also numerous activities to enjoy, such as the ancient ruins of Carthage, and museums which trace the full history of Tunisia back to the days of the Phoenicians. Did you know that the Bible was officially canonized in Carthage? Or that Augustine, the famous church father and historian served as Bishop here? We especially recommend Tunis as a short break destination for those who want to experience The Residence Hotel. For those on a budget, the El Mouradi Gammarth Hotel is an economy friendly hotel that still provides luxurious touches for its guests. The modern capital city makes this a good base for a combined golf and business trip. The golf courses of Hammamet are only one hour away, and preferred tee times and transfers are available.
Port El Kantaoui is a well developed resort and marina, with plenty to do at all hours day and night when you are not on the course. The 36 hole Kantaoui Golf Club has been a frequent host of the European Senior Tour, and is a short walk from our featured hotels. The marina offers a wide variety of excellent restaurants and other activities. Sailing, deep sea fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, and scuba diving to name just a few. British, Irish and German pubs are scattered between the marina and the adjacent town of Sousse. Port El Kantaoui is our first choice for golfers who want to literally walk to everything: Golf, hotel, marina and pubs are all within walking distance. The busiest resort centre for active winter holidays.
Hammamet is Tunisia’s most popular summer beach resort area. Three excellent golf courses are nearby, and four more less than one hour away. Yasmine Hammamet - an extension of the original resort - is Tunisia’s newest resort area, featuring many new 4 and 5 star hotels, a marina, several restaurants and a casino. The beach promenade, Carthage Land theme park, and nearby Afriquia animal and theme park offer plenty of activity when not playing golf. Hammamet is Tunisia’s best known golf resort, with many golfers coming several times per year.
Monastir-Skanes boasts a long stretch of white sandy beach, with two golf courses near the doorstep of most hotels, and two more a short distance away in Port El Kantaoui. Our featured hotels are directly facing the beach, and are either directly next to a golf course, or provide free transfers. This is the quietest golf resort area in Tunisia, and only a stone’s throw from Monastir International Airport. The towns of Monastir and Sousse are easily accessible by taxi or tourist trams/trains. Monastir features a quiet marina and some excellent Italian and seafood restaurants. Monastir is the preferred choice for those looking for good golf and a good nights rest rather than a late night out.
Tozeur is the gateway to the Sahara Desert and home of Tunisia’s newest 18-hole championship golf course. Employing the same specially engineered grasses used in world renowned golf resorts like Las Vegas and Los Cabos, it is a true emerald in the midst of the desert and especially inviting in winter when Europe is frozen solid. A round at this unique course can easily be incorporated in to our Sahara excursions, and week-long stays are also available.
This quiet Mediterranean village, known as the Coral Coast, boasts one of the most picturesque golf courses anywhere. If you must take a Mediterranean holiday and want to play one of the best undiscovered golf courses around, then Tabarka is the place to come. Reminiscent of Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill due to the seaside location. Scuba diving and snorkeling are addicting activities when not playing golf.
This Mediterranean Island is designed for sun worshippers. It also boasts a 27-hole Martin Hawtree designed golf course. Our hotels feature excellent thalassatherapy spas. Most activities are confined to the hotels, although a desert safari is worth the experience. A good choice if you want to play the same course every day. Combination tours with a few days in Tozeur are possible and recommended.
