This is a new Cabell Robinson design course located next to the Marrakech Royal Golf Club, with wonderful views of the snow-covered Atlas Mountains. Although fairly open, this is a challenging course with plenty of water hazards, bunkers and mounds.
Horrible. They do not accept credit cards. Only 10 golf cars, and they do not accept booking for the car. Unprofessional and boorish behavior of all staff spoils the game(((. but interesting golf course.
Could be great

We played 5 good places in Marrakesh, the views on this were split. First of all: it is a parkland course, lots of green, lots of trees, lots of bunkers. I liked the course design of all played the best, very varied, water, bunkers, doglegs, everything there and well used to allow a varied game. The lawn was also varied: I counted at least 4 varieties, unfortunately in a confined space. it looks like a multi-strewn course, originally created with Bermuda, which also tarnishes the visual impression (and leads to the fact that the ball is constantly on an aperitif between tufts of grass in the middle of the fairway) like the rather unkempt paths and fairway edges. Better management and a brilliant greenkeeper could turn this into a jewel with little effort (i.e. without excavators and other space conversions). We hope.
There is not much to spoil golfers. The fairways were still good in the fall. The greens fast and excellent in the shot. The bunkers did not really have sand but more soil, but that seems to be the standard here in the region. The management of the place, however, is quite chaotic. We were supposed to play the courses blue-red at 12 o'clock and had already confirmed the tee time 2 weeks in advance. When we made the sign-in, the club manager said we needed to play 15 minutes earlier because he forgot a tournament. We were there on time and that was not a problem. But when we came to Tee 1 Blau with our caddies, the tournament had already started. The caddies then quickly rescheduled and we are on the red round, there was no one there. When we finished the red round, the tournament was still running on the other two rounds and we had to play red again. That was ok, the red course is really nice and interesting. The Caddy's were sensational. They knew the course very well and had a real idea of the Golf. After three holes, my Caddy was able to estimate my club length perfectly and always gives me the right club without being asked. They were also really nice and friendly. You should definitely book the caddies. They are really worth your money (150 dirham = about 15 euros for the 18 hole plus tip). But it helps if you can speak French, since not all speak good English
