With an amiable climate, championship golf courses and bustling cities to explore, it is no surprise that golf in Morocco has become such a popular option for golf holidays. Marrakech is quickly becoming a must visit destination for any golfer seeking a holiday off the normal beaten golfing track. The resort of Palmeraie Golf Palace is one of the most established in Morocco, offering golfers a championship layout surrounded by a traditionally styled resort. Palmeraie was once a desert oasis. Now it’s an 80-hectare sanctuary of calm in the midst of Morocco’s most vibrant city, Marrakech. Traditional architecture and a wonderful complex of bougainvillea-filled gardens and elegant pools provide this paradise of a resort with an authentic Moroccan ambience.
The facilities are outstanding, and include two tennis courts, five swimming pools and a 27-hole golf course that’s one of Africa’s finest, designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones. The course offers spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains as its holes wind around seven sparkling lakes. All rooms have balcony or terrace with views of the mountains, the golf course or the swimming pools. The sensational Spa is laid out over 5,000 square metres with 16 treatment rooms and the chance to have a massage on an outside private terrace. It also has its own indoor swimming pool, saunas, Jacuzzis, hammams and a fully-equipped gym.
An average day in Morocco consists of plenty of sunshine…perfect for a golf break!
There are also six superb eateries on site, including Moroccan, Brazilian and Italian restaurants. Stay at this resort and you probably won’t see as much of exciting city of Marrakech or the six other world-class golf courses around this city as you might have done, but you won’t regret it.
