Overall the course was scruffy
Situated less than 20 minutes North of central Marrakech within the Palmeraie Resort, PalmGolf Marrakech Palmeraie Golf Course 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, Palm Golf Marrakech Palmeraie 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.
Measuring 6,835 yards against it’s par of 72, PalmGolf Marrakech Palmeraie is a course that requires guile rather than distance that is the key to playing to your handicap here. It is popular with a range of players with many couples enjoying rounds here courtesy of it’s design.
Those who are playing Golfers can expect all of the hallmarks of Morocco golf course design with lush fairways framed by the Atlas Mountains as well as mature trees that provide a unique golfing experience.
The original 18 holes at PalmGolf Marrakech Palmeraie were put together by Robert Trent Jones Sr, these nines (holes 1-9 - Jbilettes, 10-18 - Atlas) were added to in 2008 with a further nine holes (19-27 - Tensift) that were designed by Stephane Talbot who also contributed to the layout that is enjoyed just South of Marrakech at PalmGolf Marrakech Ourika. The newer nine are considered to be slightly more forgiving and perfect for anyone seeking a more leisurely golfing experience.

Overall the course was scruffy
Lovely course with good greens and a good mixture of holes. Plenty of exotic trees lined the fairways to make it interesting. A little scruffy off the the greens and fairways but nothing to stop me going back
It is not possible to hire a trolley - one has to hire a caddie instead (and he brings his own trolley. This limits one to carrying, or to hiring a buggy, if a caddie is not a personal preference. Tee times are not strictly adhered to, and caddies tend to press forward at a speed which is somewhat faster than might be preferred on holiday and which puts pressure on their "clients" and those in front.
We played three course while here and this was a good course with a fair test playing off the back tees. The greens were fast and true and the fairway lovely to play off of. The only let down was the clay bunkers which were poor and hard to play out of. In the whole good course and would play it again.
One of the original three courses in Marrakech and still one of the best. Very friendly staff and a nice holiday type course. Whilst there is water on the course it is sensibly placed and is acceptable. A good golfing experience enhanced by friendly staff who remembered us from previous years
First round took well under 4 hours, 2nd round just over. Course was an excellent holiday golf course, interesting but not brutal.
