“Terrific fairways and greens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Liked - quality of the greens and fairways were what I would expect when paying 60 GBP for my golf. The variety of the course layout was challenging and kept the interest up. Lots of variation and each hole carefully moulded into what feels like a mature links landscape. Hospitable feel. No snobbery which I thought might be the case. The manager 'Regis' was welcoming and very helpful indeed. Great driving range, low cost.

Dislikes - there seemed to be a problem with the bunkers, very crusty. Pity that there was no sand in the bunkers of the 2nd course. Pity the second course not yet finished. Reasons?.....money?
Overall, a Teriffic days golf. The 60 GBP rate was a day rate so played 45 holes!!

“Absolutely fabuleus course, à must do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

The courseas in an immaculate condition, superfast greens and the fairways were spotless.
This beats Marrakech courses by far (i played Amelkis and Royal).
Went there twice and each time the hole appeared different. Many sea overlooking views.
Puting is tested to the max.
The terrace of the clubhouse overlooks the sea and serves the amazing Mogador wines with great food. When you are in Marrakech take the Supratours bus and go to Essaouira. Stay in a Riad (for example Chbenate) and play this never to forget course.
well done Gary Player!

“What a fabulous golf course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

Went late September with friends and will be back again. The Gary Player design is certainly one of the best I have seen and played. From any tee boxes this course will provide you with the challenges you deserve according to your handicap level. Some Black tee boxes are absolutly unreal! the course was very quite and played 36 holes in a day!! we had caddies all along and would recommend to take a buggy for the second round if you were to be as mad as us!! We had a gentle brise and this was great play. However the course would have been a total different one if the wind had been stronger. Located next to the atlantic ocean, be prepared for a links course adventure. My caddy was nice and knowledgable about the course and greens reading. Will certainly come back and play again. We had a deal at 800 dirhams for two rounds inclusive of caddies, this is about £70.....surely you can't beat that.
The Club house offered excellent service and great food. There is a Sofitel on the estate as well but a bit pricy...I recommend the Ibis done the road if you are on a budget.
Go there and have fun, you will enjoy it a lot.

“Go now before the crowds arrive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2010

Played 4 rounds at the intro rate of 350 dhms plus 50 for a trolly.
This is a super course in top condition with few players. It seems well established considering its new. Greens, tees & fairways all in top condition, but sand in bunkers was very hard which was odd as it is built on sand dunes!
Unfortunatly there is no chance of refreshment at the 19th hole as club house not open yet. However they do offer a complimentary ride back to your hotel, but make sure somebody phones the office to request this & be prepared to wait.
Was told the hotel is due to open in March 2011, so get there quick!
