Located in the North West corner of Africa, The Kingdom of Morocco offers tourists an extremely diverse array of activities, landscapes, cultures and some incredible coastline.
It is also famous for its culinary offerings and tourism is a quickly growing market in the country.
Many of you may be surprised to know that Morocco boasts a number of championship golf resorts that are built to incredible standards.
Golf in Morocco has been played since 1917 with the opening of the Royal Tangiers Golf Club, a century worth of golfing tradition in the country.
A total of 37 courses, designed by some of the greatest designers, including Robert Trent Jones, Gary Player and Colin Montgomery, are ready to welcome you.
Golf in Morocco is, without doubt, a pleasure, year-round availability and incredibly good value for money, it is an up and coming destination for foreign visitors, although in comparison to Spain and Portugal it is still a limited market.
Scattered across the country, the style of courses is hugely dependant on their location.
Those that face the Atlantic Ocean are designed with culture in mind, and this is no truer than at Meknes, where the course has been built alongside the centuries-old city walls. Couple this with the possibility of playing at any time of day or night. A new experience for many golfers would be the “Moroccan Links” courses which are integrated perfectly within their natural surroundings. The incredible Mazagan is a complete test of golf and is touted to hold a tour event in the future.
Courses at the north and north-east of the country, border the Mediterranean Sea and are typically more “Spanish” in style with pine trees offering shade, well maintained planted areas and lush green fairways.
Head towards the cultural epi-center of Morocco, Marrakech, and you will find courses with the stunning Atlas Mountains in the background.
Golf in Morocco is continually developing and with more courses looking to entice golfers to visit the standard of the golf courses is always incredible.
