The Royal Golf Club
Designed by Cabell B Robinson, the man responsible for many of Continental Europe’s best layouts, Royal Palm Golf & Country Club offers preferred access to resort guests and is one of Morocco’s top ranked courses.
Extending to over 7,200 yards from the back tees, Royal Palm can certainly offer a stiff test even to the best golfers, and with Bermuda fairways and tees, as well as A4 bent grass greens, the course stands out from the pack in terms of conditioning, making a round on Royal Palm most enjoyable.
While more than three quarters of a million square metres of earth was moved during construction, the course appears very natural to the naked eye, blending seamlessly into the landscape which is awash with colour. A huge variety of shrubs, flowers and trees bloom at different times of the year all over the course, and with holes routed around 5 large lakes, it is one of the country’s most picturesque layouts.
Wide fairways allow for some margin for error from the tee which allows a great range of golfers to enjoy the course. Stray too far from the fairway though and you’ll find your way into great swathes of sand in the form of waste bunkers. Speaking of bunkers, this is one of the most eye catching features of the course and with countless years of experience, Robinson has the traps well placed, forcing the golfer to carefully consider their shot selection throughout the course.

Black: 7,226 yards
Yellow: 6,146 yards
Signature Hole – No. 3: Par 4, 357 yards (Black Tees)
While there are plenty of excellent holes at Royal Palm, the short, and driveable for some par 4 3rd is a classic risk vs. reward hole. Doglegging right from tee to green, longer hitters will surely be tempted to take the aggressive line over the corner in an attempt to drive the green and bag a birdie while more modest hitters play for position in the fairway.
With water the whole way down the right of the hole, and desert scrub to the left, neither option is an easy proposition and will require well struck shots in order to escape without losing shots to the course.
Short game practice facilities include 2 putting greens and a dedicated chipping and pitching green featuring advanced equipment which can be used for technical analysis of your technique. The Golf Academy allows players to warm up before their round or even get a lesson and with a digital coaching studio featuring video analysis, launch monitors and swing analysis equipment, tuition is of the highest standard.
At The Clubhouse
Before or after a round, golfers can relax in a friendly atmosphere and make use of the restaurant and bar, and with a snack & beverage cart patrolling the course, you’ll never go wanting during your round.
Golf buggies and trolleys are both available for hire and come highly recommended with the weather conditions in mind. Temperatures can soar in Morocco so conserving energy during your time on the course is a must.
Services include golf shoe care and with caddies on hand, you can always rely on some local knowledge to safely navigate your way around the course.
A fully stocked proshop allows you to take to the course with everything you may require during your round.
