We stayed and did some golfing in the Palmaraie Golf Club, it was quite a good experience with nice views of the green and the surrounding regions. We also pre-booked some tours before we left France, we did both quad biking and horse riding in the palm grove of Marrakech - we highly recommend this experience to all! And also we did a day trip to a place called the ourika valley (waterfalls and atlas mountain views), where we had our lunch near the waterfalls :).
We used a company (www.marrakech-loisirs.com) we came across through a good friend of ours.
All in all our experience of both the golfing and tours where really good and would recommend others to give it a try.
The green fees are like anywhere in europe sometimes cheaper.

This 18 hole course, located in a lush oasis 15 minutes north of Marrakesh, was designed by Robert Trent Jones. It has views of the majestic Atlas mountains and a horizon dotted with white medinas. The American-style course runs through a valley and there are thousands of palm trees and 7 lakes as well as numerous sand hazards to contend with. The ochre walls of the Moorish-style clubhouse forms a striking centrepiece to the course design.

This is a new Cabell Robinson design course located next to the Marrakech Royal Golf Club, with wonderful views of the snow-covered Atlas Mountains. Although fairly open, this is a challenging course with plenty of water hazards, bunkers and mounds.

Built in the 1920s by the pasha of Marrakech, the Royal Golf Club of Marrakech (pictured) is one of the longest established in Morocco. Constantly renovated and improved, it is also one of King Hassan II's favourite courses. Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George and General Eisenhower have also played here. It is a course of extreme beauty. Located at the feet of the Atlas mountains, the course has cypress, eucalyptus, palm, olive, orange and apricot trees.
