Within 15 minutes of the bustling city centre, the Royal Marrakech Golf Club is one of the Morocco's most celebrated golfing venues. The course is known to be a personal favourite of His Majesty King Hassan II, and has wonderful views of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains.
In 2018 parts of the course were updated with new buggy paths, draining and course layout. A brand new Clubhouse was also built. The Clubhouse has a feel of stepping in something you would easily find the the USA. Its low sloping roof allows players to soak up the atmosphere on the wonderful veranda after playing 18 holes on Royal Golf's Old course.
A new entrance was opened allowing you to access the Golf Club via the new clubhouse. New practice facilities and a new driving range were also added to compliment the amazing work that was done to upgrade Royal Golf Marrakech
Opened in 1923, Royal Marrakech was subsequently reworked by Open Champion Arnaud Massy in 1933, and is a real gem. The course design has a distinct British accent, yet its surroundings are far removed from home shores; banks of cypress, eucalyptus, palm, olive, orange and apricot trees ensure that your round will be enjoyed in the most spectacular environment.
The tall trees are supported by a procession of strategically positioned bunkers, ensuring that the fair but challenging test is assured. Easily reached from the hub of the city centre, Royal Marrakech comes highly recommended for as part of any golf escape to sunny Morocco.
Famous names to have enjoyed Royal Marrakech include Winston Churchill, Ike Eisenhower and David Lloyd George.
Nice course to play. Trickier for high handicappers as you have to be straight. All in all a good course. Looked after.
Very HOT - must hire a buggy. Very enjoyable course to play, plenty of shade.
We had to play 9 holes of the New course as the front 9 of the Old was under maintenance. We didn't know this prior to the trip otherwise we would have played elsewhere as the New is not a great 9 holes. The staff were not friendly and the caddies were extremely poor. Very disappointed as this is the one of the oldest courses in Morocco and we expected better.
Lovely golf course tree lines make it more interesting, some fairways a little bit tatty
From the outset the course looked stunning but as we progressed through the round all the holes were very much the same and not very challenging . The landscape was tree lined fairways straight up and down , not very exciting .The clubhouse was old colonial style and was excellent . The big annoying problem on all 3 courses we played was holliday makers with caddies coaching at every hole .
A fascinating experience to return to a course I played some twenty five years ago when Marrakesh only had this one track. Twenty five years ago it was in brilliant condition. Clearly with much more competition the course has suffered. However, there was clear evidence that the management are doing all they can to bring this course up to an acceptable standard, having spent a large amount of money upgrading the off course facilities. We found the course tight but fair! Not easy for long and wayward drivers! Similar to many of our parkland courses in Kent, and very different to any other Marrakesh courses. Easy walking course compared to most others. We would love to play the "Old Course 18 holes" again another year! Not sure about the "new nine" we didn't play though, which we viewed from a distance and seemingly presented like most other Marrakesh courses.
Was not able to tee off at 1st Tee at allotted times due to large groups gathered at the 1st and 10th on New Course and !st on Old Course on first occasion the only on the 4th of the Old Course on second occasion. Both occasions there were about twenty golfers gathered on each of the 1st and 10TH tee boxes of both courses.
The one and only thing I would say is, they charge for range balls, but all the other courses didn’t. Lovely course though 😁
It was raining but that did not hide the fact that this "old" course may have been left behind by new course layout. It is a gentle stroll through holes which are somewhat repetitious.
It is a short, tree lined course and not so pretty. The club house and restaurant were the nicest we experienced like an old colonial villa.
A little disappointed. This is the oldest course in Marrakech and it can be seen by poor tee boxes (currently being replaced) and a few tired looking fairways. The course plays like a mature parkland in England which makes it a test with its tree lined fairways.
We were allocated to play the front nine on the new course and back nine on the old - as it transpired, we also played the front nine of the old. The new course was definitely more interesting and in better condition, the old rather boring up and down alley ways of trees around 350 - 390 yards long. They had heavily watered it and the greens were marked. Not one to play if you have alternatives, we didn't have time to visit the bar area which did look smart.
More of a challenge playing from the back tees. Fairways were mostly narrow and tree lined. Fairly straight forward challenge. Beautiful club house with plenty of staff round to assist.
The oldest course, opened in 1917 and beautifully established grounds and setting Undulating and long fairways, greens very tricky Great fun Club house recently refurbished and really excellent. Restaurant and facilities the best we saw Highly recommend this course
We played old course first day but we felt all the holes were very similar straight with a couple of bunkers in front. Second time we played we were on the new vourse but they hadn't updated the score cards so we couldn't sync our watches very well. Sorry we had booked two rounds here. Best bit was the amount of very smart toilets on the course.
We had an excellent round , a two ball played in under three and half hours. The course was in good condition. greens a bit slow but good. We had a delightful lunch post game
The oldest course in Marrakech and still one of the best. The 'Old' course is very English (no water!!). They have built 9 new holes which are on the 'modern' American style and is poor. If you go there make sure you play the original 9 holes.
A good opening course for first time visit to Marrakesh. Compared to European Courses, Spain & Portugal it lacked the finishing touches of a quality course. Very untidy with rubbish and ground works around the perimeter. Would play again. Voucher etc all worked well with check in at pro shop & caddy master.
We particularly wanted to play this course again this year as it the closest you will get to a traditional English golf course being over 90 years old. The course was generally in good condition but maybe too much water had ben used around the greens meaning that the said areas were a bit wet underfoot.
Considering the lack of water in morocco , dare i say this course was probably a tad over watered when we played .The greens were very soft,obviously very reseptive but were getting badly damaged by incoming balls
Really lovely place. 3 nines- we played the blue and red nines. Blue is newer amd more open. Red is really tight and lovely on the eye. The green course was out of play for maintenance - it looked lovely. The clubhouse amd practice areas were just about to open after a significant renovation - it would be awesome!
We had been looking forward to playing this course which by reputation is the best and oldest in Marrakesh. However, whilst OK, the staff were not as helpful as we were used to and the whole place felt tired and in need of some updating. Worst clubhouse and changing facilities (felt like a public park). Looked as though there was a much plusher clubhouse for members situated on the other side of the course. Signs were poor and many of the holes felt the same. Greens were true but quite pitted with repaired pitch marks due to their wetness. Disappointing!
As all courses played we had early tee times which we found beneficial so as to avoid the heat of the day. At this time of year we found the course quiet and hence under no pressure from other players. We were not matched up with others and in buggy the round took us 3.5 hours only.it was like millionaires golf! Lovely tree lined ,established course. Drinks at bar expensive.
The reason I am saying the course was hard it was badly maintained needs a good clean up greens were terrible the bunkers had sand but not playable fairways were water logged through leaking pipes.also asking to much money for the buggies do not supply free bottled water The Royal Marrakech was a disgrace!
The golf course consisted of 3 x 9 hole courses blue was a great track both visually and very well set out and quite challenging all our group really enjoyed it! Green was ok but a lot of the holes felt and looked the same but did require a straight drive as all holes are tree lined with bunkers in the right places to keep you on your toes! Red was closed so I can't comment on that!! We played royal Marrakech twice and enjoyed both times!! We had a choice of buggies or caddies the buggies are around £37 and caddies are £13 paid to the caddy although most give £20 because they are so much help and would 100% recommend! The 19th hole was rather expensive we brought 4 beers which cost around £30 but they were cold and needed after 18 holes in 35 degree heat!!
