GOLF DU SOLEIL
Our next favourite course is the Championship course at Golf du Soleil. This course opened in 1999 and is located within a Eucalyptus forest. It is a very well-kept course with large bunkers and cleverly placed water features.
In the tradition of Moroccan golf courses, the course is nicely landscaped with flower beds, decorative lakes, eucalyptus and broom. Players need to drive well on the longest holes to challenge the par, but also to lay up on the narrower holes. The greens well defended by generous bunkers spice up the course. Bordered by large eucalyptus trees or valleys of rough reminiscent of a links, each hole is a challenge in itself. The course is relatively flat and without physical difficulty which will allow most golfers to play this course on foot.
Far from noisy roads and the hustle and bustle of the city, the Golf du Soleil offers a green, bucolic and restful setting to indulge your passion for golf, whatever your level of play.
