“A great disappointment”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We were looking forward to this but came away disillusioned. The course is flat and tree lined and wasn't in very good condition. Many holes were the same with little variety, Perhaps the par-3 16th was the best. Being enclosed there is no scenery to enjoy - just grass and palm trees ..
The drainage works being carried out along each fairway didn't help.
Caddies are compulsory but ours were not worth the 100 dirham fee. They got bored and when play slowed down even suggested we miss out a hole so they could get home!
The 19th was nice with a good selection but as usual, the damn flies were everywhere!

“Colonial Golf at it's best”
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”
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.”
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.
