In morocco, where nature presents such a majestic spectacle, golf has found its roots and its culture with more than 200 holes to delight the dedicated player.  At Marrakesh, the fairways are laid out on a plateau dominated by the eternal snows of the Atlas mountains, snake their way between the cypress and pine trees on the hills at Tangier, stand surrounded by a forest of century-old oaks at Rabat and by the joyful colours of the heather, tamarisk and gorse at Cabo Negro, follow the dunes at Agadir and even extend to the heart of the imperial city of Meknes where they form, part of the Royal Palace park. 

Fourteen golf courses in all, and fourteen masterpieces … which will number thirty by the year 2000, designed by such international masters as Robert Trent Jones, Jack Nicklaus and Cabell B. Robinson.  Golf was first introduced into Morocco at the beginning of the century even before football – and has since become a national passion. This craze for the game is also a reflection of royal favour, since golf, the king of sports, is the favourite sport of His Majesty King Hassan II, who has acquired international ranking by creating the competition for the elegant and much-prized Hassan II Trophy.  All the golf clubs described in this website are open to the public, even if access to them is sometimes limited to players possessing a handicap card. The green fee varies between 100 and 500 dirhams. Most courses offer club hiring facilities as well as caddies or electric carts. Some are closed one day a week.

Golf du Soleil (27 holes)

”Soleil Golf” Course spreads over 85 hectares planted with tamarisk, mimosas, eucalyptus and palm trees. The greens are well guarded by bunkers, and 4 lakes bring water in play on 6 holes. Will suit all levels of play.           olf des Dunes (27 holes) The Wadi; the yellow course, needs much more skill.  Hole number three, par 5, inspires fear and respect. Its narrow green is guarded by a lake, an embankment, a bunker and a deep depression. Good luck!  For the Tamarisk, the red course, you will need all your clubs and all your best strokes. The ingredients; two lakes, fairways that appear reasonably calm and a moderately-sized eucalyptus wood. The last hole is imposing: a narrow par 5 that climbs uphill through the trees before gently sloping down to the green and the club house.  


Royal Golf Club (18 holes)

With good reason. How magical for a golfer to play on this par 72 course at the feet of the snow-covered Atlas Mountains! And what a delight to stride the length of its 6,200 meters where grow such a profusion of cypress, eucalyptus, palm, olive, orange and apricot trees!  But don’t let the extreme beauty of the course put you off your game. Be doubly vigilant at hole number 15. The green is hidden behind two grassy mounds Separated by a bunker. Plus an additional hazard: the angles are blocked by high palm trees.  Once the game is over, seasoned players often remember some of the eminent men who have played on this world-famous course; men like Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George and Ike Eisenhower…
