Ranked 19th in Morocco designed by Robert Trent Jones three nines Jibilettes, Atlas and Tensift.
We played (in February 2017) the J/A as the new nine was a bit new looking. Overall a good course; if you hit the fairways you get run and if in the rough it slows quickly but is findable making it a pleasure to play. Not spectacular views where the course circled around the hotel where we stayed. Many holes are dog-legs and more of them a semi-circle around a lake making the amount you want to bite-off interesting and challenging. Greens were good and fast and yet will check up a good shot. As a links players we struggled to pitch from the ’cotton-wool’ rough. Beware of 17th par 3- be long. A bit of a mystery playing for the first time as my sat-nav. nor the buggy nav. did not work and made it more difficult clubbing than it was. Recommend play and enjoy ahead of the Royal.
