PalmGolf Marrakech-Ourika wins Golfers’ Choice Award in Morocco
PalmGolf Marrakech-Ourika is located in the south of Marrakech on the road to Ourika. It’s based in a quiet and relaxed setting, planted with olive trees and palm trees. This makes PalmGolf Marrakech-Ourika a must to play in the PalmGolf Morocco collection. It has been designed in a desert style -including huge bunkers- by the Canadian duo Neil Haworth and Stéphane Talbot. They made the course of the PalmGolf Marrakech-Ourika over 6692 meters long, creating a beautiful par 72 to play. A unique aspect of this course is that it’s the only ‘buggy only’ course in Morocco. Their buggies are provided with a modern GPS-system and give advice on which club to use at which position.
