Royal Golf of Marrakesh was one of His late Majesty King Hassan’s favorite golf courses as it was Winston Churchill. Shaped in the 20’s by Arnaud Massy, it was opened in 1933 and modernized since then.
This golf course carefully preserved its traditional charm, paying careful attention to every detail. Beyond the pleasure you will receive from playing the game, you will also be able to take in all of the courses vast flora and fauna. As you stroll through the lush garden with its hundred year old trees.
Marrakesh Royal Golf is made of an 18 hole-course -Old Course PAR 72 of 5937 meters - and a 9 hole-course - Menara course PAR 36 of 3072 meters.
The Royal Golf Academy offers trainings and private courses for all players, from beginners to professionals, as well as a golf school for children from 4 to 18 years old.
Old colonial style course. All fairways play through an avenue of beautiful old trees. Flat fairways, flat greens and bunkers you can putt out of don't make for an inspiring round of golf though. Its old style but could seriously do with a cosmetic update. There seems to be no shortage of money being spent on a new clubhouse. Hopefully some money left to spend on the course. With increasing competition from new built courses around Marrakesh I hope this one doesn't get neglected. AC PGA Pro

I was preparing for a tournament in EGYPT, here in MARRAKESCH. I was preffer this golf course because I heard here was playing HASSAN II trophy. I was playing 3 days here, on the back tees. Except the ATLAS MOUNTAINS, there is nothing very special, there are a lot of orange trees and they have on old Course hole no. 15 (called BRIGITTE BARDOT) which is an average PAR 3 but very well guarded green, by bunkers, trees and hills. The green's speed is 9,5-10 feet. MENARA golf course is definitely more dificult than OLD COURSE first 9 holes... Above all, they have a lovely girl on secretariat... RIME whom was like a fresh orange. Everybody else trying cheating, as all over in MARRAKESCH. Tip : do not use nothing else than public taxi. They expect a little tip, but all others will ask you 3 times more money! Especially do not take taxi from front of your hotel! Even they looks like a public cab and have some authorization.
Unfortunately, only a shadow of the good old days

The place is in the autumn of 2019 still in a pretty bad condition. The fairways are partly barren, burnt or earthy. The bunkers only pits and between the fairways dams the water that is missing on the fairways. The greens are now pretty battered and unevenly fast. In addition, the flight management is catastrophic. The flights are sent to the pitch regardless of tee time. Flights with local caddy then suddenly cut in the middle of it in front of you on the track and the game pace is very slow, as players are left on the course that can not play golf at all. In the flight ahead of us, two ladies regularly took more than 10 strokes to get on the green. So each hole lasted almost 30 minutes before they let us overtake us after a lot of good persuasion on the 4th hole.
Pity about the great park and the sensational clubhouse. My tip plays next to the Amelkis Square and then goes to the Royal in the clubhouse for food and drink, to see the great atmosphere. It is not really worthwhile to play golf, as there are much better places in the region.
