If you still haven’t decided where to go on your winter golf escape, look across the Mediterranean at Morocco. Here on a Morocco golf holiday you can enjoy beautiful courses and immerse yourself in the exciting history of this exotic country.
Less than four hours by plane from the UK, the temperatures are now heading towards the mid-twenties and the sun is shining eight hours a day whether you head to the Red City of Marrakech, Agadir or Mazagan near Casablanca on the Atlantic coast.
There are seven great golf courses around Marrakech. You can always book a caddy to help you round the greens and avoid the hazards. The clubhouse facilities are second to none and after enjoying an unpressured round, take time to relax on the terraces and enjoy the views. The breathtaking backdrop of the Atlas Mountains will leave you in awe of your surroundings.
In contrast, the hustle and bustle of the Medina in Marrakech has to be experienced at least once during your golf holiday in Morocco. However determined you are not to spend money in the souk, you will be tempted to bring back a souvenir or two.
Just a few minutes from the Medina, in the central L’Hivernage district, is one of our favourite hotels, the Movenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech. With four restaurants set within the stunning resort there is no need to leave the premises, but we do recommend you enjoy some local cuisine on your doorstep.
The Fairmont Royal Palm is ideal if you wish to stay in the countryside surrounding Marrakech, the outstanding Royal Palm golf course, designed by Cabell B Robinson, is on site and should be at the top of your list, wherever you choose to stay.
If you’re looking for peace and quiet, turn your attention to Agadir on the Atlantic coast for your Morocco golf holiday, with its miles of beaches and equally attractive golf courses, including the links at Tazegzout. The elegant Mazagan resort near Casablanca is a stand out alternative for those looking for elegance and excellent golf on the course designed by Gary Player no less.
With the Moroccan dirham currently at a favourable rate to the pound, it’s a great opportunity to enjoy this North African country and experience a winter sun golf holiday which will stay in your memory long after the suntan has faded.
