This course is scattered with pine trees and large dark sand bunkers, very much a "desert" feel. In places you get a glimpse of the snow capped Atlas mountains. As a high handicapper I enjoyed this course.
Situated less than 20 minutes North of central Marrakech within the Palmeraie Resort, Golf Club Rotana Palmeraie Marrakech is a 27 hole championship golfing destination which was put together by famed designer Robert Trent Jones Sr. As one of the world’s top golf course architects Trent Jones Sr has constructed many masterpieces including Ryder Cup venues Valderrama Golf Club and Hazeltine National Golf Club.
As Marrakech’s 2nd oldest golf course, Golf Club Rotana Palmeraie Marrakech has welcomed golfers since 1992. The course has become a popular destination as part of a Morocco golf holiday with golfers enjoying the excellent onsite accommodation at Hotel du Golf or Palmeraie Palace and the challenge offered by this great resort golf course.
The incredible palm grove that frames the golf course dates back to the 11th century and was created by the soldiers of Almoravid Sultan Youssef ben Tachfine who returned from the Sahara with dates that made a 45-square mile palm grove that we can enjoy today.
Please note that a Golf Buggy or Caddy is compulsory for playing on the course.
