No fewer than three sides of the actual course are edged by the Red Sea, which often proves a rather hazardous natural water feature, while other challenges include more than 70 sandy bunkers, streams and large man-made lakes. With a golf academy, a professional golfing shop, equipment rental, caddies and power carts all available, the Cascades Golf Resort is always popular with visitors to Hurghada and is close to both the Robinson Club Hotel and also the Sheraton Soma Bay Hotel.
