Golfing enthusiasts are known to try to include a round of golf wherever they may be visiting, and while Algeria is not exactly what might be termed a golfer's paradise, there are some golf courses for visitors to enjoy a game at. The Arab world has been exposed to golf since World War I when the British introduced the game to Egypt, eventually finding its way to Algeria.
Local Algerian TV is limited to just one station. Electronic media (TV and Radio) in Algeria is state-controlled. However, the printed press is very active and often has much to say about the authorities. Whilst there are no censorship laws as such, legislation states that those insulting or slandering government officials can face prison or hefty fines.
