Situated a mere 10 minutes from the airport and from downtown Marrakech, PalmGolf Marrakech-Ourika boasts a fascinating desert style golf course as part of a newly developed luxury resort and residential area.
The golf course, designed by the Canadian golf architects Neil Haworth and Stephane Talbot and operated by Troon Golf, was carefully embedded into the natural Moroccan countryside and opened in 2015.
While five sets of tees welcome golfers of all handicaps to a joyful round with stunning views at the Atlas Mountains snowy peaks, some of the holes are constructed on sloping grounds – unusual for the largely flat lands around magical Marrakech. The fairways are of forgiving proportions, as are some of the fast greens, whereas a greater number of them are strategically bunkered with large waste areas reminiscent of the desert grounds the course is built on.
The venue’s six lakes not only serve as water hazards, one of them is used for water cable skiing thereby bowing to the fact that PalmGolf Marrakech Ourika is conceived as a resort, a place of relaxation and recreation for demanding golfers and other guests in search of facilities and services of superior level. Besides the often praised club house, restaurant, beach club and hotel, the venue will soon encompass a number of wellness facilities and leisure areas.
