“Treat for Golfers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The club house and the 18-hole course are set in the middle of an idyllic setting with a panoramic view of the Atlas mountains. The grounds are mature and the greens were perfect to be putted on in Marrakesh. I was invited to play here along with a friend. The Caddy master welcomed us with a cheerful and a friendly smile. The course was magnificent and I was extremely lucky to get a chance to play as this is the best golf course in Marrakesh. The surrounding scenery is truly stunning and peaceful. There are also excellent practice facilities. In my opinion a top class golf club and an ideal golf training center in Marrakesh.

“A desert classic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Even the 40C+ heat that we played in, couldn´t detract from the fact that this going to be the best course in Marrakech. On arrival, we were met by Mohammed the caddy master who was very welcoming and efficient.Because of the heat, we chose buggies, next time we´ll use the caddies as they spoke fluent Engilsh and really seemed to know their golf( not always the case in Marrakech).This beautiful course has a lot of very strategically placed bunkers with the greens being particularly well defended and if you´re off the fairway you´re literally in the desert!So a bit more of a test than say Palmaraie Golf. Mint tea after the first nine was a nice touch and this combination of top class service and great golf course design augurs well for the official opening in the Autumn, We´ll be back!

We were lucky enough to play this course , the best in Marrakech by a streak.

When it opens make sure you make this one of your places to play.

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Played in mid-April. We knew the course was not officially open so were prepared for the fact that the "facilities" off course would be basic.

We were met by the Caddy Master, who was both courteous and professional. He was kind enough to provide cold drinks for us at the 9th and when we finished.

The course is excellent. Some of the holes are very strategic and good use is made of dog legs and elevation changes. Some strong par 3's 200 yards plus couples with some finesse shot par 3s which made that side of the course interesting. Bunkering and narrow approaches meant that not all the par 5's were automatic go for it in two, which is refreshing. Greens are maturing a little slow and a bit flat, but still very true.

As a group we thought it was the best course we played in Marrakech having played all the usual suspects

“A special course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We were very fortunate enough to be invited to play here in March and what a treat it was. The director of golf met us at the clubhouse and was a friendly guy who immediately made us welcome. It really is a special course, everything has been perfectly manicured, the backdrop of the Atlas mountains is superb and every hole has a different feel to it. The caddies we had were the best we had in Marrakech (we played 4 other courses). For me this was the most enjoyable of the lot just beating Samanah. The greens were quite slow but very true and with the course continuing to bed in overtime I think these could be very quick true greens. Overall, this will be a first class golf course and the best in Marrakech and I really cannot recommend enough to play here along with Samanah, Al Madden and Palmarie. Thanks and good luck with the opening
