The pleasures of golfing in Morocco

In Morocco, golf is a more than just a sport: it's tradition! For a little over a century, golf courses have been cropping up across the country. There are currently 37 that invite you to indulge your passion under ideal conditions against beautiful backdrops and with access to the most modern infrastructure.

In the north, the Mediterranean looms on the horizon as you drive your ball. In Tetouan, Lixus and Tangier, you will walk through the shade of pine and fir trees and skirt paths bordered by flowers.

On the Atlantic coast and in the interior, the golf experience is quite different. This is where sports and culture intermingle. In Meknes, you can enjoy the course, which abuts the walls of the city, day and night thanks to its spotlights. Morocco’s links mesh harmoniously with the surrounding natural setting. To up your game, try the spectacular course in Mazagan, which presents serious challenges to the most experienced golfers.

In Marrakesh, the scenery is something else: its bunkers, fairways and greens unfurl to the Atlas foothills. These jagged horizons are sometimes broken by the lovely sights of a palm grove.

Finally, in the extreme south, Agadir is home to sumptuous courses. Bask in the sun amidst the dunes and fall under the spell of the surrounding vegetation as you practice your favorite hobby in what surely must be heaven on earth.
