“Unforgettable Golf Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

We can’t thank enough Mr. Guy Maxwell Director of Assoufid Golf Club.

Whilst the course is not officially opened, we had the pleasure to play it.
Very well designed course, every hole is different pleasant, nice scenery everywhere on the course you have a perfect view to the ATLAS, the course was in perfect condition.
We were met by the Caddy Master who was gently and very
professional, providing us at the 9th coffe, tea, pastrie and SMILE.

This is one of the most challenging and exciting new golf course I have played and without doubt the BEST Golf Course in Marrakech.
So if you really want to appreciate a piece of golf paradise, friendly hospitality and an unique golf experience Assoufid Golf Club it will become a ‘MUST MUST PLAY ‘course for all golfers visiting Marrakech

DON’T MISS IT

Many Thanks Nicola R.

“"A must for Golfers"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We can’t thank Assoufid Golf Club and its Director of Golf, Mr Guy Maxwell enough for welcoming us to play at this gem of a course, prior to its official opening on our recent visit to Marrakech. We were met by the very hospitable and efficient Caddy Master Mohammed, who kindly co-ordinated clubs and knowledgeable caddies for my husband and our 16 year old son to enjoy their round of golf. The backdrop of this Niall Cameron designed 18 hole course, is the Atlas Mountains and what a setting it is. I can see how easily it would be, to become mesmerised by the panorama in winter, when the mountains are snow-capped. We didn’t have the pleasure of the snow but we did have the beauty of the stunning landscape.
Although I didn’t play this time, Mohammed kindly escorted me in a cart for a tour of the 18 holes and the facilities that this fabulous and exotic course has to offer and I was impressed with what I saw. The Villas overlooking the course are very striking and add to the ambience of the peaceful and natural desert scenery. My husband and son who are proficient players “found the course very challenging from the back markers” and we all agreed the course is comfortable for a social player from the white tees.
We were most impressed by the standard of the course with subtle sloping fairways which contained plenty of dog legs and holes that ended with well-defended greens. Although still a little young , it will definitely mature into an A grade golfing facility and resort in the future especially with such great attributes as a club house, practice facilities and a future golf school in place…something our son paid particular interest in.
The hospitality and the friendliness extended to complimentary tea, coffee and cakes after the 9th and use of the locker rooms which was welcomed and a nice touch.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this wonderful course and were grateful for the opportunity to play it. So if you really want to appreciate a piece of paradise, friendly hospitality and a unique golf experience, Assoufid Golf Club should be your first preference for a golf game while in Marrakech.

Many Thanks

“The best by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We were delighted to be invited by Guy Maxwell the Director of Golf at Assoufid to try the course prior to its official opening. We were blown away by the course and the hospitality. This is a serious golf course for serious golfers and the best by far in the region. It is beautifully designed and an absolute pleasure to play. We were greeted by Mohammed the caddy master as we arrived and then introduced to our caddies who were very friendly and knowledgable. We were treated to complimentary tea, coffee and cold towels all laid out on a table with white table cloth next to the 9th green. Nice touch!. Without boasting too much I believe according to the caddies that I am the first person to get a hole in one on Assoufid. The 17th Par 3 - 135 mtrs !! Call it luck but you still have to get the ball to go in the right direction in the first place! Many thanks to Guy and your team. We will be back.

“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!
