Golf in Marrakech 

Marrakech is a great destination for a short golfing tour both for the standard of the courses, laid out by some of the top names in golf course design, and, no less important, for the ideal winter climate, temperatures being in the low twenties to mid thirties from November to late April. It can be beautifully warm on the golf course even in January! There are currently no fewer than twelve excellent 18 or 27 hole courses to choose from, all some 10 to 20 minutes from the hotel, where exotic flowering shrubs as well as palm, eucalyptus and other trees flourish against the splendid backdrop of the Atlas mountains, snow-capped from mid November to early April. Each course has an impressive range of facilities including a clubhouse with restaurant and bar, a practice ground and/or driving range and the services of a professional as well as caddies.

Les Borjs de la Kasbah is situated close to all the best golf courses in Marrakech, including The Royal, Amelkis, Al Maaden, The Montgomerie and Jacklin, the Noria and 9-hole Atlas (all 10 minutes away) and the Palmeraie on the other side of town. We are happy to organise golfing breaks for small groups and larger societies (maximum capacity 33). As well as accommodation, we can arrange transfers to and from the courses and pre-book tee times as well as on-course meals. We are also able to set up special 'Gala Evening' finales at the hotel, combining prize-giving ceremonies with a traditional gastronomic dinner accompanied by Moroccan musical entertainment, dancers and other performers.

Contact Us to request further details and we'll be happy to quote you for the creation of a tailor-made package to meet your specific requirements.

 

MARRAKECH GOLF CLUBS

The Royal Club (opened 1923)

An attractive woodland course, 5,888m par 70, the long established Royal features mainly narrow fairways flanked by palm, cypress, olive and orange trees which make this shadier than other courses. There is a practice area and driving range alongside a newly built restaurant/bar. An interesting 9-hole extension was added to the course some years ago.

One of the closest courses (along with the Atlas and Montgomerie) to Marrakech itself. 

The Palmeraie (opened 1993)

A parkland course, 6,214m, par 72, created from a palm and olive grove on the north side of town. The course is notable for its several acres of ponds and other water features and for the fine views of the Atlas. There is a large clubhouse with good restaurant, spacious bar and extensive views of the course and a driving range alongside.

Amelkis (opened 1995)

Another parkland course, 6,657m par 72, designed by Cabell Robinson. The fairways are mainly quite generous, with relatively little rough, but bordered by palms and olives with extensive, shallow sand features, some deep bunkers and numerous water hazards. Grass driving range (not mats). Impressive kasbah style clubhouse with bar, dining room and sunny terrace. An extra nine holes were added some years ago and a further nine are planned. 

Samanah Country Club (opened October 2009)

Designed by the Jack Nicklaus company, the course is located some 14 km to the south of Marrakech set against the splendid spectacle of the Atlas Mountains, beautifully snow-capped in winter. A state of the art drainage system, in line with US PGA recommendations, has created greens of exceptional quality. Tony Jacklin is a regular visitor here.

Al Maaden Golf Resort (opened in March 2010)

The 18-hole Al Maaden Golf Resort, located right next door to the Royal, features a flat, grassy terrain combining indigenous vegetation (olives and flowering shrubs) with sand and water hazards, in the shape of two large irrigations basins each divided into numerous individual pools, the signature feature of the course. The views of the Atlas are uninterrupted and breathtaking. The Al Maaden Golf Resort boasts a number of impressive facilities including a smart clubhouse, popular restaurant, and driving range. 

The Atlas (opened 2012)

This is a delightfully laid out nine hole course occupying a peaceful location not far from the centre of town. The course is short but challenging, with numerous water features and a treacherous rocky wadi runing down the centre of it, and is extensively planted with decorative palm and olive trees. An excellent terraced restaurant overlooks the course. There is a (lightning quick) wavy putting green and several practice nets. One of our favourite courses.

Other Marrakech golf courses include the more recently created 'Montgomerie', 'Jacklin', 'Noria' and 'Ourika'.
