Just 25 minutes from the incredible city of Marrakech, PalmGolf Marrakech Ourika Golf Course is a stunning golfing oasis measuring over 7,300 yards from the back tees against it’s par of 72.
Golfers heading here as part of their Morocco golf holidays are in for a memorable experience with fast running greens and stunning undulations all framed by the iconic Atlas mountains which provide a unique golfing landscape.
The golf course is managed by Troon Golf so expect award winning service and excellent practice facilities by a group who looks after some of the world’s best golf courses including The Els Club in Dubai, La Reserva in Sotogrande and Costa Navarino in Greece.

Since opening in 2015, PalmGolf Marrakech Ourika has quickly become a recognised layout in Morocco achieving a ranking of 8th by Top 100 Golf Courses for Morocco, quite a feat considering the many fantastic courses that it has to offer.
Designed by the Canadian pairing of Neil Haworth and Stephane Talbot, PalmGolf Marrakech Ourika is a course that has utilised the natural flora to create a fantastic golfing experience. Golfers can enjoy fairways lined by Olive, Palm and Cypress trees as well as numerous water hazards ensuring that those keeping it on the straight and narrow are the ones sure to play to their handicap.
Whilst the course can be extended to over 7,300 yards, most golfers won’t opt for the Black Tees but enjoy a more manageable test off the Yellow Tees at 6,542 yards. Many will look to the par-3 17th hole as one of the best on the course with it’s island green surrounded by contrasting sand but it will be holes like the par-5 7th, par-4 9th and par-5 18th that will shape your score with approaches and greens guarded closed by water with any shot straying offline sure to be punished.
As one of the best golf in the sun destinations, Marrakech is quickly becoming a must visit golfing destination with many heading here to take advantage of the superb winter sun on offer. Whilst PalmGolf Marrakech Ourika is one of the newer courses on offer in this region it is sure to be a popular choice with anyone seeking a playable layout that will challenge and reward during the course of your round.
Extremely tricky and past greens. The round seemed to take longer than the rest for some reason. Friendly staff and caddies though. Will come back again if we return to Morocco.
Choose your tee box carefully as some of the send traps are hard to get over, also playing very long, greens very difficult as fast and sloping but very nice
Wow another great course . There was a lot of landscaped hard sand areas on the fairways which caused problems if you couldn't drive 180 metres. This is not a criticism because they enhanced each fairway and added a degree of difficulty but once again the grass areas were fantastic . The greens were located in awkward positions at times and were of a more common speed . There was also a large reservoir which came into play on 3 or 4 of the holes . A good challenging course that I would love to play again .We did have thunder and lightning which caused all the British golfers to retire to the club house but most of the Europeans kept playing with their caddies .
Rated 2nd of the 4 we played
A well presented golf course and worthy of being part of our six course itinerary.
Enjoyed the course. Spoilt by slow play and numbers on the course. Again due to large parties not able to get off on 1st tee box but moved to the 10th. Caddie Master did try to help but had to cope with shear large party numbers. First round very slow - five and a quarter hours (four ball). Second round four hours(three ball). The problem seemed to stem from two of the players walked each with a caddie.
Beautiful course with big waste bunkers to drag you in if you're wayward off the tee. Greens were well protected by bunkers welk placed to test you. Once on the greens you will be tested by fast greens with plenty of break. Definitely returning in the future
A real thinkers course, with water hazards, a must for next year 😎
Should note that we played off the whites (handicaps of 8). There are some significant carries off the tee and long irons required into table-top greens which make this course a challenge. Only negative is that you have to take a buggy or a caddy rather than being able to walk it yourself.
Surprisingly cheaper than the other courses but a very challenging one - if you want to test you golf, come here... Greens were the best in Marrakech...
The best of the 4 courses we played. Always making you think but not unfairly. Well worth another visit and the views stunning.
Again this was the 3rd year in a row that we had played Palm Golf Marrakesh Ourika and it is a question as to whether this is even better than our favourite, Assoufid. There are some very challenging holes some with fairly long carries to reach fairways. It is a risk & reward course needing some serious course management decisions.
Again early tee time recommended/beneficial to enjoy pressure free round in cool weather. Greeted by Abdul Caddy Master who was excellent host. Practice facilities available included in price along with bottled ware, ice cool box and gps on buggy. Best buggy provided. Modern clubhouse. Great views around course of Atlas Mountains and would definitely recommend/play course again.
