“the virtual golf course”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

after a long taxi drive from Marrakech city I arrived at the Assoufid Golf. Well, not really: there was a gatekeeper who did not let us in because the golf course is not open yet! And he even could not tell WHEN it was going to open. If ever... : the construction works there seem to be stopped, and from the 200 villas only 2 seem to be finished (a rumor?). So, to be in the absolute top list of "things to do in Marrakech", how is that possible? I really wonder what one can do in a virtual golf course. Dream of birdies an eagles? Rudolf W.

Dear Sir,
Many thanks for your feedback. Assoufid Golf Club is located 15 minutes drive south-west of Marrakesh's historical centre. Although the golf course is ready, we do not have a precise opening date. Therefore, we are unfortunately not accepting reservations at the moment. As soon as we have a clear view on when we will open, it will be immediately posted on our website.
Assoufid will feature a 5-star luxury Hotel & Spa and a limited number of exclusive luxury villas, each set on plots of 1 hectare (2.5 acres). At the moment, 3 villas have been finished and another 2 will be finished over the next few months. Regards.

“The new 'must play' course in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We were lucky enough to try the new Assoufid course which was simply magnificent. We were even foolhardy enough to play the back competition tees that had been set up for a pro competition.

They may have defeated us but it was a pleasure anyway! The views are spectacular and the course sits beautifully in it's natural setting.

Once this course opens it should be a 'must play' for any keen golfer. Oh, to be a member here!!

“Best in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We were invited to play this course which should be opening in the next few months. The course itself is already maturing, the fairways are immaculate and the greens are the best we have putted on in Marrakech.

The course tests all parts of your game; the fairways are suitably wide, as long as you play to the right part. If you want to make the hole shorter, make sure you hit it straight.

There is the full holes, par 3's from 130 - 240, drivable par 4's, par 5's reachable in 2 and genuine 3 shotters.

The scenery is stunning and the practice facilities promise to be superb when they are finished. If you have to play one course in Marrakech, this is the one.

“What a way to get a away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

My wife and I were fortunate to arrange a round without actually knowing that it still hasn't officially and completely opened. Hence, Assoufid is such a find that our taxi driver thanked us for bringing him out to this new development. Upon arrival it is clear that this facility has big intentions and from all appearances it will hopefully become what it aspires to be, a first class golf club with a thriving golf learning center or institiute fit for the likes of Sir Nick or Lord Leadbetter. As for the course, it plays like its surroundings, wild and wonderful. Its very generous off the tee for the ladies and high handicappers with plenty of challenge for us low ones. The greens roll true and have plenty of nuance too them without being gimmicky. All in all if you only have one round in the red city this is the one. Hopefully it opens in time for your trip!

“Amazing golf course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

This new golf course is an absolute joy. It is a well designed golf layout in a beautiful setting. The fact that everything is maintained in an immaculate condition makes it a wonderful experience. I am looking forward to the new clubhouse and training center, which will make Assoufid "the place to be" for golf in Marrakech.
