Tunisia is the perfect destination for a golf holiday. Stunning relics of the past, dazzling Mediterranean sunshine,wonderful cuisine, mile after mile of white sandy beaches and the finest hotels - Tunisia has them all. Once the heartland of Roman Africa, Tunisia has the finest surviving Roman sites anywhere.
Now, Tunisia has also gained renown as a golfing holiday destination. And no wonder: it has the most magnificent courses that are both scenic and challenging. All of this available only three hours away from home in a land of year-round sunshine that is so excitingly different.
Possibly the best known resort in Tunisia is Hammamet, once a small fishing village, now a lively resort with shops, fine restaurants, cafes and open-air nightclubs. Hammammet is an ideal location for a relaxing golf holiday. Here, just a few minutes from your hotel you will find the three fine golf courses of Yasmine, Citrus La Foret and Citrus Les Oliviers.
Another excellent golf holiday resort is Port El Kantaoui. Picturesque and peaceful, Port El Kantaoui features an attractive marina surrounded by cafes and restaurants. Here you have the choice of El Kantaoui Golf Club as well as the excellent golf courses of Flamigo Golf Club and Palm Links in nearby Monastir.
No car hire is required in either of the two resorts, as transfers are laid on from airport to the hotels and from your hotel to the golf courses, allowing you to concentrate on enjoying your Tunisia golf holiday.
