golf  in marrakech

golf marrakech

Marrakech is gradually becoming a rather good golfing destination after the opening of some new superbly designed courses.  And there's more opening soon.

Currently, the Top 3 golf courses in Marrakech are:

Arguably the best golf course is Palmeraie Golf Club, designed by Robert Trent Jones.  It's more about strategy and accuracy than brute power.  Be warned, the course is dotted with 7 lakes to test your nerve.  There are now 27 holes here (the latest 9 added a couple of years ago) and all are well worth playing.

The fantastic 18-hole championship golf course at the Al Maaden Golf Club was designed by Kyle Phillips and has the hint of a links course about it.   Kyle Phillips has incorporated numerous strategically placed bunkers that will require careful, accurate play in order to score well. The club also boasts excellent practice facilities and a modern clubhouse, plus a nearby spa to soothe your tired body after your round.

Lastly, in our top 3, Samanah Golf Club has an 18-hole Nicklaus designed 'desert golf' championship course (pictured above) with an abundance of cacti, olive trees and palm trees. Samanah also has stunning views of the Atlas Mountains, well-placed bunkers and water hazards and an excellent 2,000 square metre clubhouse.  Whilst this is a classic Nicklaus style course, it's beautifully maintained and definitely lays claim to being in the top three courses in Marrakech (along with Al Maaden and Palmeraie).

The Royal Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Morocco and just happens to be one of His Majesty King Hassan ll’s favourite courses.  It's an “English style” course with strategically placed bunkers protecting its greens and testing tall trees and palms. You will also be following in the footsteps of Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George and Ike Eisenhower.  Whilst it has mature trees and plantings all around, due to the course's age, it's not however a particularly fine course - but worth playing if you've already tried our 'top 3' courses (above).

Our experts can put together the perfect golf tour for you in Marrakech.  It's only 3 hours away from London, so perfect for a long weekend or longer.  We will arrange everything for you, book the tee times and drivers to get you to and from your villa, riad or hotel.  See our recommended places to stay.

Alternatively, how about flying further south to South Africa?  The golf courses are better and there's much more choice.  See Golf SA
