Situated close to the vibrant ‘Red City’ of Marrakech, and set to become one of finest golf experiences in Europe and Africa the Assoufid Golf Club Marrakech is open.
Set against North Africa’s snow-capped Atlas Mountains in the distance the desert-style 6,440-metre (7,042-yard), par-72 golf course, is the design debut for Scottish PGA professional and former European Tour player, Niall Cameron.
The eco-friendly course was sympathetically designed to be integrated into the existing landscape and to encourage the site’s indigenous flora and fauna to thrive, whilst minimizing water consumption.
Guy Maxwell, Golf Director at Assoufid Golf Club, said: “Our objective is to provide the finest golfing experience by delivering a beautifully maintained golf course and exceptional levels of service whilst protecting the integrity of the indigenous natural landscape.
“Already, feedback from visiting local and international golfers has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are confident Assoufid Golf Club will quickly establish itself as one of Morocco’s finest courses, and become a must-visit stop off for the discerning golf traveller.”
Assoufid Golf Club forms part of an exquisite 222-hectare development, to include a 5-star hotel and residences, and offers golfers an excitingly diverse challenge across a rolling desert landscape featuring cacti, palm and olive trees. The development is situated just 20-minutes from the old town (medina) of vibrant Marrakech – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and a 10-minute drive from the international airport.
Morocco is among the fastest growing golf destinations in the EMEA region and Marrakech, within a three-hour flight time of most European capital cities and famed for its souks, world-class cuisine and clubs, is a legendary haven for artists, fashionistas, movie stars, business people and statesmen.
