A historic course that was founded in 1927 on the wishes of the former Pasha of Marrakech, Royal Golf Marrakech is one of the most prestigious golf courses in the old imperial city. Many famous figures have played here. A variety of towering trees provide plenty of shade and a garden golf experience. The original course had just four holes, later being expended to have nine, and then enlarged again to the 18-hole course that golfers can enjoy today. Although a fairly short course, it still provides plenty of challenges. There is another nine-hole course, the Menara Course, if you want a quicker game. Equipment rentals, golf tuition, a shop, and a restaurant are all available.
A 27-hole golf course in the Palmeraies area of Marrakech, PalmGolf was designed by an American architect, Robert Trent Jones Senior. The site is relatively flat and two lopped courses can be combined or played individually. Beautiful palm trees surround the course and the peaks of the Atlas Mountains rise in the distance. The course has an impressive 11 lakes too. Pre- or post-game, you can enjoy tennis, and the restaurant serves a delicious assortment of typical Moroccan dishes. Tasteful accommodation is also available.
Among the oldest golf courses in both the country and the African continent, Royal Golf de Tanger was established in 1914. The course has a markedly British feel. Close to Tangier’s major attractions and beaches, the northern course was also the first golf course in the Mediterranean basin. Covering 65 hectares of attractive land, the 18-hole course combines flats and hills and there are also plenty of surprises! Pines, firs, cypresses, and other trees surround the course. The practice facilities, with grassed areas, a training bunker, two putting greens, and a chipping/pitching green are great for beginners to the sport. Lessons are also available.
Another brilliant golf course in the north of Morocco, Palmeraie Golf Saidia is located close to the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Eighteen glorious holes await keen golfers, each offering something different. There’s a golf academy and equipment can be rented onsite. Designed by Spanish architect Francisco Segales, the course boasts exceptional greens, gorgeous water features, and plenty of wildlife-filled natural areas.
These 12 golf courses in Morocco are just a few of the nation’s many excellent golf facilities. There are certainly plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors.
