Golf holidays in Marrakech - travel and tourism information.

Golf holidays in Marrakech

Marrakech lies inland at the foot of the Atlas mountains and enjoys a superb climate during our Winter months: dry and not too hot.  There are now five excellent golf courses (one old, four modern) and there are several more golf courses currently in the planning stage.

The city itself is rightly fabled for its unique atmsophere - there is nowhere in the world quite like Marrakech.  The town is abuzz with life and characters; yes, everybody wants to sell you something but in a most enchanting friendly fashion.  Besides the people, who really make Marrakech the welcoming place it is, there are plenty of sights to see both in the ancient Medinah and outside and up into the Atlas mountains.

The hotels we have selected around Marrakech are very westernised in terms of facilities and would stand up well to comparison with luxury hotels in most areas of Europe.

All varieties of food are available from traditional Moroccan dishes (Couscous, tajine, mechoui etcetera) to European cuisine and even the all-pervasive hamburger.

The main square in Marrakech (Jmaa el Fnaa) plays host to the largest conglomeration of itinerant chefs every evening where you can find everything from freshly squeezed orange juice to dates, pistachios and cashews to boiled snails, fried chicken, mutton stew... 

Around this gastronomic hot-pot, you will find an array of snake-charmers, magicians, fortune tellers, et al, that are unique to the fascinating city of 1,001 nights.

Behind the square, amongst the narrow alleys of the Souk you can haggle to your heart's content over wood carvings, spices, tea-pots, slippers, leather poufs, Arabian lamps, jewellery and a million and one other hand crafted items.

Getting to Marrakech

Marrakech is very easy to get to for your golf holiday with so many flights direct to Marrakech with British Airways, Royal Air Maroc and EasyJet.  Some of the big package holiday companies offer flights too with FlyThomasCook and ThomsonFly both offering flights to Marrakech from the Midlands.

From France AirFrance offer plenty of services, as do TAP from Lisbon.
