Marrakech is one of the world’s enchanted places where time becomes suspended and, through its open door, you catch a glimpse of the past so rich and so remote and yet so palpable. You can sense the atavism propelling every trick and turn in the Djemaa el Fna, Marrakech’s pulsating main square and one of the world’s great theatres. In the past years, there has been a huge push to market Marrakech as a golfers’ paradise. There are now three golf courses within 15 minutes from the centre of Marrakech that would rival some of the best courses in the USA and Europe. Unlike many other European courses, the greens are not surrounded by buildings and apartments, usually, the only backdrop is the Atlas Mountains and palm trees.
Although not as advanced in golf as Spain and Portugal, Marrakech in Morocco still offers an interesting golfing experience on some superb, well-designed golf courses. Golf may have been a little slower taking off in Morocco, but in recent times it’s popularity has soared. With such a superb climate golf can be played in Morocco all year round, although summer months can get a little hot for some.
Morocco is a great alternative golfing and holiday destination to Spain and Portugal and something a little different for the golf traveler. A country steeped in tradition, culture and beauty, it is a contrast to it’s European neighbors and gives the “feel” of a far more distant location. However, with the low cost airlines now flying into Morocco from the UK it has indeed soared in it’s popularity as a holiday destination.
The Government of Morocco has acknowledged the boom in tourism as important to its economy and has ensured ongoing modernisation and better security within its borders. If you are looking for something different for this year’s golfing trip then Morocco offers a great alternative to golf in Spain or Portugal.
