Marrakech Golf Holidays

Marrakech has had a long and colourful history since its founding by the Berber Almoravids in 1062. It was the capital of an Islamic empire that reached from central Spain to West Africa and called the ‘Pink City’ because of the colour of the local earth used in its construction. European traders entered the area in the late 19th-Century, and France occupied virtually all of Morocco by 1912. Sultan Mohammed V inspired an independence party that finally secured Moroccan freedom in 1956.

Marrakech Golf Holidays are Morocco’s most beautiful travel destination and home to an amazing array of sights, activities and events. For those looking a glimpse of the real Morocco, or just a fun night out, Marrakech mixes old world charm with a modern and vibrant night life. Marrakech is a wonderful combination of delightful aromas, bright colourful marketplaces and the contrasting arid desert.

Marrakech Golf Breaks

Marrakech has blazing hot summers and bright, crisp winters. Rains are refreshing in spring and in autumn. Morocco has the most unique climate of all African countries, as it is flanked by seas and guarded by the Atlas Mountains. September through to June are the most pleasant months to visit for one of our Marrakech Golf Breaks, as most days will be sunny but just moderately humid and warm. Temperatures always reach between 20 and 30°C.

And now Marrakech has 9 golf courses – designed by the likes of Montgomerie, Phillips, Palmer and Robinson. In our opinion, Royal Palm and Samanah would sit comfortable among the best in continental Europe and Noria, Al Maaden, Palmaraie, Amelkis and Royal Marrakech are good quality courses, well-maintained and with lovely views and service. And four more courses are due to open in late 2014..Ourika, Akenza and Assoufid with the 9-hole course at Atlas building an additional nine

Marrakech Golf Breaks

Tajine Cookery Class - Visit a local market to buy fresh produce before you discover the secrets to the various spices and ingredients used in Moroccan cooking while learning to make Moroccan salads, tajines or couscous. At the end of your class, feast on your achievements!  You will be collected from your hotel at 9.00am and transferred to a riad in the medina. Here you’ll learn the Arabic words for the ingredients for your recipe of the day. Afterwards, head to the souq and mix with the local Marrakeshi as you shop for the fresh produce for your meal; meat and vegetables, herbs and spices that form the basis of Moroccan cuisine. Then head back to the riad for your hands-on cookery class.

 

Easy Hike to the Tin-Mal Mosque (Private Tour) - The stunning Tin Mal mosque is the prize at the end of this history-filled hike through beautiful Valley of Ljoukak.  This three hour ramble takes place in the decaying riverside Kasbah of a once powerful feudal chieftain.  The romantic ruins still retain some traces of grandeur in the original Hispano-Arabesque decoration.  The trek continues to past the castle of Agadir n’Gouf which became an outpost of the French Foreign Legion in the 1920’s and crosses the hauntingly beautiful Valley of ljoukak before arriving at the small remote stronghold settlement of Tin Mal. 

The Mosque is the sole survivor of a once holy 12th-Century City and only one of two in the whole of Morocco into which non-Muslims may enter (except on Fridays).  Although the Mosque is now roofless, this only adds to the mystery and austerity of the place and the warm sun casts strong shadows from the horseshoe arches creating a playground for any photographer.A riverside picnic lunch is included on the return journey along with glimpses of further ruins on this thoroughly enjoyable and evocative hike.

 

Horse Riding in La Palmaraie - An enjoyable horseback tour through the lush palm grove of Marrakech.  Located in the north-east corner of the city, La Palmeraie is a true oasis with a hundred thousand trees providing shade from the hot African sun. 

 

Marrakech City Discovery - Enjoy a walking tour through Marrakech’s medina and markets, an area unchanged for hundreds of years. Along the way pick up a memento or two. Afterwards, join the locals at a hamam for a scrub, massage and steam! An experience not to be missed on any Moroccan adventure.

 

Start your morning in the region of Gueliz, home to some of the city’s most stylish boutiques, hip restaurants, bars and gardens. Your first stop is the Theatre Royal. Then travel on to discover the Jnane El Harti Park, originally laid out as a formal French garden and zoo.  Crossing over Place du 16 Novembre, see the latest phase of urban regeneration in the city. Then visit the local street Marche Municipal and explore its abundance of flower stalls, foods and ceramics.

Take a break over lunch at Djemma el Fna and relax with a local family at the medina.  Recharged, it’s time to head down colourful rue Riad Zitoun El Kedim and Maison Tiskwin to see a fascinating private collection of crafts and decorative arts from southern Morocco and the Sahara. Then visit the Palais De Bahia, a haven of shady courtyards and blue mosaic walls built for Bou Ahmed. The palace also includes beautiful quarters for his 4 wives and 24 concubines.

 

Pass through the Jewish Quarter and visit the Palais El Badi constructed during the reign of Sultan Ahmed El Mansour in 1578 and the Saddian Tombs another monument of that same era.  Finally head back to Djemma el Fna Square where the tour finishes. Your local guide can provide instructions on how to get back to your hotel or you can continue your shopping in the local souqs.

 

Marrakech Medina, Palaces & Tombs - Discover the medina and experience life as it has been for hundreds of years. In the souqs learn about the different industries that make the Old City so unique. Visit the city gates, palaces, tombs, museums and Kotoubia Mosque. Finish at Djemma el-Fna, filled with snake charmers, musicians and market stalls.

 

Hammam & Market Explorer - Explore medina life as it has been for hundreds of years, enjoy a traditional Moroccan hamam and gommage and see the sights of world heritage site Djemma el-Fna Square. Here you can explore the stalls of jewellery makers and fabric dyers and mingle with locals shopping for fresh produce.  

Start your tour at Djemma el-Fna Square where at night you will find hundreds of food stalls, acrobats, snake charmers and gnaoua musicians entertaining the crowds from here, visit the many souqs and medinas of Marrakech and explore the different industries. Mingle with locals selling fresh vegetables, herbs and spices and see the quarters of the carpenters, wood turners and dyers. There’s even a souq des babouches (slippers) and of course leather and jewellery makers. There’s plenty of opportunity along the way to pick up some handicrafts and practice your bartering as you explore.

Finally head to the hamam where you can experience the traditional Moroccan social custom of a weekly steam, massage and scrub.  Your local guide will leave you once you've entered the hamam and can provide instructions on how to get back to your hotel or you can continue your shopping in the local souks.

 

Western Ourika Valley & Oukaimeden Hike (Private Tour) - Teeming with lush vegetation, palmeraies, steep gorges and terraced Berber Hamlets, the Ourika Valley is one of the most stunning hikes to be had in this part of the world.  Five or six hours of easy rambling await you on this stunning trek.  Wander between Berber hamlets which are sometimes precariously located to make the most of the climate and soil conditions. 

You will set out in a grand circle taking in some of the best natural sites Morocco has to offer.  A picnic lunch will be served at about the half way stage beside refreshing waterfalls before you continue on your journey enjoying even more exquisite panoramas of the distant mountains.  Make sure you take a camera!

 

Quad Biking in Marrakech - Take an exhilarating ride through the lush green oasis of the Marrakech Palmeraie.  Reaching speeds of up to 80 kilometres per hour, quad bikes are by far the most fun you can have on four wheels. With a low centre of gravity and over-sized tyres even a novice can get adventurous. Just a stones throw from Marrakech, this fantastic trail winds and twists through sand and bush, towering palms and past berber hamlets reminding you of the exotic location.  A fantastic half-day of thrills complimented by stunning scenery and African sunshine.

 

Nightlife in Marrakech - Marrakech is famous for its vibrant nightlife. It presents a large range of contemporary clubs to traditional dinner dances.  The medina is likely to draw the most attention in the evenings when you will find Jemaa el Fna Square coming to life with performing artists, outdoor cafes and rows upon rows of food sellers. There are many restaurants with terraces that overlook the square.

In Marrakech most of the best bars and nightclubs are situated in Gueliz. These are either serving in the large hotels or along the Avenue Mohammed V. But remember, there is almost always an entry fee for the clubs and discos. Here you will see the dress code is generally pretty casual. Most of the clubs play Western pop music with some local flavor thrown in for good measure.

 

Nightclubs in Marrakech - There are several nightclubs in Marrakech which will provide you the essence of Marrakech nights.

Before Le Montecristo
This nightclub is a local favorite of the Marrakechis. Laurence Corsin has positively succeeded with the decoration of this fashionable club. Just order tapas and other snacks in the recently opened summer room.
