The Palmeraie Golf Club - When the international master Robert Trent Jones was presented with a perpetually limpid sky, the celebrated Palmeraie (Palm Grove) at Marrakech, the majestic Atlas mountains and a horizon dotted with white medians, he created an 18 hole masterpiece: the Palmeraie Golf Club.
Marrakech Royal Golf Club - Built in the 1920's by the pasha of Marrakech, the course is constantly renovated and improved, and it is also one of His Majesty King Hassan ll's favorite courses. With good reason. How magical for a golfer to play on this par 72 course at the feet of the snow-covered Atlas mountains! And what a delight to stride the length of its 6,200 meters where grow such a profusion of cypress, eucalyptus, palm, olive, orange and apricot trees.
