Year round beauty, warmth and sunshine; three of Morocco’s biggest draws also happen to be the top three requirements for a good day of golf. It’ll come as no surprise, therefore, that the country is home to some of the world’s most luxurious, well-kept and vast golf courses. Simply put, Morocco has plenty of places for you to secure a hole in one. These are just a few of the best.
The Palmeraie is an adventure playground for all golfing fans, and if you aren’t a golf lover, you’ll still appreciate the scenery. Crowned the greatest golf course in Africa, Palmeraie’s 77 hectares of luscious golf land is home to 11 lakes and enjoys panoramic views of the spectacular Atlas Mountains. It’s hard to believe that just a two minute bus journey from here takes you central Marrakesh, yet this retreat somehow provides utter tranquillity. Check into the Palmeraie Palace on the golf course’s door step where the finest hospitality will continue through the luxury rooms and fine dining. The perfect retreat after a round of 27 holes on a sun-drenched green.
Golf du Soleil, Agadir
The two spectacular courses of Golf du Soleil can be found nestled between the Atlantic waves and the towering Atlas Mountains in Agadir. Each of the courses has been designed with a different experience in mind. Fancy yourself a bit of a golfing pro? Head down to the Tikida Course where you’ll be tested on your technical strategy. The Championship Course, on the other hand, has been designed with simple pleasure in mind for all skill levels. Whichever you chose, be sure to refuel with a club sandwich on the terrace overlooking the two courses.
Royal Golf de Marrakech
An establishment that has attracted novice, expert and famous golfers for over 80 years, Royal Golf de Marrakech is a tranquil course bursting with luscious vegetation that frames the routes. Alpine, eucalyptus, palm, olive and orange trees are there to be enjoyed along the way, stimulating all your senses as you putt on this well-trodden and celebrated course. Every round of golf must always conclude with a refreshing beverage, of course, and the Royal Golf de Marrakech club house knows exactly how to entertain. Kick back on the shaded terrace on a woven wicker bench whilst letting the dappled sunlight highlight the historic beauty in front of you.
Agadir Royal Golf Club
Firmly place your tee on the grass of Agadir’s Royal Golf club and be greeted by a view of the Atlas Mountains reflecting off the lakes and the sound of the gently rustling palms that dot the course. Slightly further in land from Agadir, the course is much quieter, leaving you with more room to improve your skills. With just nine holes crafted into a luscious triangular course, this one is often favoured by beginners. We say use this place to brush up on your skills before you move on to some of the other, grander courses Morocco has to offer.
