Golf du Soleil
The beautiful 36-hole Golf du Soleil was uniquely designed deep in the heart of a eucalyptus forest by Fernando Mueller and Gerard Courbin, and includes the 18-hole Tikida and Championship golf courses. This classic design consisting of many hazards including spacious water features and strategically placed bunkers will test every shot in your bag, and is a must play on your next golf holiday to Agadir.
The 36-hole Golf du Soleil courses features the perfectly manicured greens and invigorating challenge one would expect from a prestigious golf course. An important feature of these courses is its ability to accommodate all golfers, regardless of their skillset or handicap. Situated just outside of Agadir, a holiday here offers an ideal opportunity to experience this fabulous course and captivating city.
The Tikida course boasts a parkland feel, and features much African vegetation just as one would expect. With many water hazards and each hole bearing its own unique character, you are sure not to forget a round of golf here. The 7th and 8th holes are particularly memorable due to their strategically placed water hazards. The holes on this course are generally characterised with narrow fairways lined with dense greenery, making it near enough impossible to rescue wayward shots; amateur players must proceed with caution here. Furthermore, the subtle contour of these greens must also be taken into consideration as not to hinder your scorecard further.

The Championship course at the Golf du Soleil has played host to several prestigious tournaments and competitions, including the Ladies European Tour in 2011 and EPD Tour, which acts as a true testament to the quality of this course. The holes here are predominantly characterised by strategically placed water hazards, spacious bunkers and elevated greens. The Championship course is widely considered to be more challenging than the Tikida course, and has an impressive length of 5,976 metres from the back tees. A feature hole of this course includes the par-5 3rd, which features a challenging sharp dog leg which bears to the left, and a tilted two-tiered green.
