“Colonial Golf at it's best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Look beyond the poor tees and enjoy Colonial Golf at it's best. Beware, caddies are mandatory, even if you want a buggy but they certainly added to the experience at only 100 DM each. Good course to end your golf tour on,

“Old and now a bit tired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Tree lined on all holes, but mostly straight, few dog legs.
They were upgrading the watering system, but in reasonable conditions. Just looking a bit tired as a whole. Very few memorable holes

“110 club on tour.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We visited Morocco 29th September 2013 and played at the Royal on 5th October.
We HAD to have a caddie or you are not able to play the course, this ranges from 100 upwards. Our caddie got quite agitated when we gave him 200 and had to increase this to 300. He was on his mobile most of the time and kept going off to talk to people. When we spoke to them back at the course office they did not want to know. A man is also taking pictures of you and of course jumps on you when you finish golf to buy them. Then when you put your shoes in the changing room, guess what, they want money for cleaning them!!! No chance all they got was a smile.
The course is a mature course, very scenic and enjoyable but not difficult.

“4th course we played and the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We played 4 courses this Sept 2013 in Marrakesh and the Royal was by far the best.
It might be a bit up and down with holes all looking very similar but at least it was very well maintained. Bunkers raked and with sand in them (not the case with Palmeraie or Al Marden) and well maintained greens (not the case on the Blue and Green nines at Almelkis).

Also for the first time we were made to feel welcome at the course. Something the other positively do not do - someone needs to have words as we are spending a pretty penny and a smile and feeling of being welcome their is not hard to do in any language!

They mandate caddies (100) and the minute you get out of the car they are on you fast to secure their job. To be fair, they are a reasonable price to pay for local knowledge and if you are prepared to be social with them it works.

Weird one was that I wanted a practice bucket of ball but they would not allow me to buy one bucket, I had to have two. No amount of discussion changed this so I went onto the course without a warm up?

My playing partner got a hole in one on the signature hole (15th, called Bridget Bardot). That made their day!

Palmeraie (6/10), Elmelkis (7/10), Al Maaden (7/10).
