GOLF IN TUNISIA:
Monastir / Skanes
FLAMINGO GOLF COURSE

In its magnificent setting on a plateau shaded by ancient olive trees, Flamingo Golf Course offers the amazing sight of a garden suspended between lakes and sea.

From its cliffs furrowed by ladies, the course runs

down hills and through valleys with pools under the ever blue Mediterranean sky.

The course is intended to be a technical one, Power must be combined with skills to handle its many pitfalls. Overlooking the sea, the fairways straddle ravines, follow the slope of hills, with greens running gently above pools. Apart from the length of the holes, the player must deal with the wind water hazards, which are wide and skillfully located. However, five starting points per hole allow all golfers to complete the course which is suited to their level of play.

Designed by the Californian architect, Fream, the course combines the very high technical aspects of the top international courses with a surprising layout which makes ingenious use of a tortured yet lush landscape and is one of the very best in North Africa.
