“Straight golf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

After getting quite unhappy because of the conditions at the Amelkis and Al Maaden courses and after a useless visit at the Assoufid course which will probably be open in my next life, as they themselves do not know when it will open at all, I really enjoyed the Royal Golf Club. Narrow fairways (so keep your nerves, relax and aim well), nice fast greens, some very experienced caddies, and a cosy atmosphere; I could even play a nice second round of 18 holes in the afternoon (for 200 Dhm = €20). My feet hurt but I was smiling...

“Timber”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Every hole is lined from tee to green, without exception. You have to be straight ( I wasn't ),
After a while it all becomes a bit samey. The greens were lightning, but not as true as Amelkis.

Nice ambiance - a bit of history about the place.

“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This older golf club is an enjoyable experience. The mature narrow fairways provide challenges and variety. We played as an experienced golfer and a relative novice, and both enjoyed the day. Afterwards, you can sit out in pleasant surroundings for lunch or a drink. It was our favourite out of the 5 courses we played during the holiday.

“Keep it straight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

A classic, old style course. Not overly long therefore no need to take a driver on every tee. If you miss the fairway, you may well lose your ball although your caddy will do his utmost to find it.

They are in the process of replacing the greens so there are currently 3 very new greens although the old ones are fine in my opinion.

The caddies, very friendly but also very noisy and probably not the best caddies that you will have in Marrakech. Our two raced us around in 3 hours, which was fine for us but may not be to everybody's liking.



The setting is very old fashioned and very relaxed
