The PalmGolf Marrakech – Ourika golf course in Marrakech, Morocco, designed by Neil Haworth, ASGCA, of Nelson & Haworth and Stephane Talbot is now open, reports Golf Course Architecture magazine. The course is adjacent to the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. course, PalmGolf Marrakech – Palmeraie.
The magazine reports:
“Morocco has seen continued growth in rounds for a number of years, gathering a loyal client base from across Europe and further afield,” said Jon Schauder, business development director, international division and area director – Europe, Troon. “These are extremely positive times for the country and we’re excited to be part of this development with Palmeraie Development Group, strengthening the existing relationship.”
The course plays 6,692 meters and has been described as a semi-desert, Arizona-style layout.
“We are extremely honored to welcome this new course to the PalmGolf Morocco family,” said Talbot. “It is our goal to create an extraordinary experience for our members and guests by offering them excellent service, facilities and superior playing surfaces. The signature 17th hole will certainly leave a lasting impression on our guests, with its island green surrounded by sand.”
