Tunisia

Tunisia is the most northern country in Africa, flanked by Algeria to the west, Libya to the south and the Mediterranean Sea to the north and east of a sandy coastline that extends to over 700 miles. Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Arabs, Ottomans and French have all ruled this area of North Africa during the past few thousand years with the Tunisian people in control of their own destiny only since independence in 1956.

Tunisia lies very close to the European continent but many believe it has been slow to market the golf facilities it can offer a large number of potential visitors. There’s plenty of golfers in a large catchment area to the north just waiting to be tempted to travel a relatively short way to play here, especially when the sun shines on this part of the world nearly all the year round.

Although the first Tunisian golf course was established at Carthage in the 1920s, it was another fifty years before others followed and American architect Ron Fream led the way, designing exciting layouts from Tabarka in the north along the coastline to Monastir.

Following the 2010/11 Revolution, it will be interesting to see what the Tunisian government now does in order to further develop the nation’s golfing infrastructure.
