The inaugural Egypt Troon Cup has proved a huge success

The Inaugural Egypt Troon Cup kicked off in Egypt with a match between The Allegria and Madinaty Golf Club, two flagship properties managed and operated by Troon under the Troon Golf brand. The match marked the first of many planned events between the two clubs designed to create friendly competition between the two Troon managed properties.

The match was played in a match-play setup with 20 members representing each club in a Ryder Cup format and fell on the opening day of the Ryder Cup weekend. Played on the Greg Norman Signature Golf Course, it was The Allegria who came out as champions on their home course with a 1.5-point advantage over Madinaty Golf Club.

Josh North, General Manager of Madinaty Golf Club commented, “All of us at Madinaty Golf Club are extremely excited about our collaboration with The Allegria. It is great to see two Troon managed golf clubs come together and put on unique events like this for our memberships. It was fantastic to see friendly rivalry on and off the golf course and we look forward to bringing the cup home to Madinaty in March!”.
