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.

Royal Marrakech Golf Club
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.

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!!
