The 3rd Morocco Golf Festival is being played for the third time on the fabulous golf courses surrounding the historic "Red City" of
Marrakech from October 7 (travel out) to 14 (travel back).
The festival starts with a gentle warm-up round to allow golfers to acclimatise to the warm and sunny conditions.
The first day we'll send teams of 4 out in a Texas Scramble format.
For the four competitive rounds, players will be playing in separate categories and will see them play 4 rounds of
Stableford competition of your official handicap (no slope rating adjustment)
Out of the first three rounds, a player's worst score will be discarded.
The final round always counts and will be added to the total of your previous best two scores.
In the final round, players will go off from the first tee in order of running tallies, with the best players last to tee off.


In addition to competitive golf, there is an exciting programme full of various activities:
*Cocktail party
*Sightseeing tour of Marrakech
*Prizegiving Gala Dinner with entertainment
*Accompanying person programme.
This tournament week is great fun, a friendly competition and an enjoyable way of making new friends as you play five outstanding golf courses in Morocco. Jo Maes is the Tournament Director for a second year.

Mohamed will do your arrangements
Menara Travel and Mohamed Fakir will arrange your flights, accommodation at a five-star hotel in Marrakech, your transport to and from the airport and to and from the hotel to each new course daily.
E-mail Mohamed  at morocco4golf@googlemail.com and  tell him you want to go to the 3rd Morocco Festival.
Tell him how many will be in your party if you are not going alone, whether they are all golfers or not .. give him your preferred UK (or Ireland) airport of departure - and he will do the rest.

+The courses which will be played include the two being used by the Ladies European Tour for its Qualifying School competitions in December - Amelkis and Al Maaden (pictured below).

In fact several players who intend going out to Morocco in December for the Q School are coming to the 3rd Morocco Festival so that they can get used to the different golfing conditions compared with UK courses, in particular Amelkis and Al Maaden.
But there is plenty of room for long handicap players, male and female, at the Festival.
The long-range weather forecast for Morocco in October - warm and sunny as it always is. Yes, it sometimes rains there too - but you dry off a lot more quickly!
+Marrakech is known as the "Red City" because of the colour of the stone used in the construction of many of the buildings.
