Golf Les Dunes
Located 10 km from the city of Agadir, the Dunes Golf was created in 1991 by the famous Cabell B Robinson, who has succeeded in his vision to create a fabulous golf course with each and every hole bearing its own character. This popular 27 hole course extends over 250 acres of beautiful hilly terrain which makes the Golf des Dunes a great test of golf.
This 6,243-metre-long course is framed by eucalyptus and palm trees and punctuated by four large lakes, creating an unforgettable golfing challenge which can easily be appreciated by all players, regardless of their skillset or handicap. The course consists of three 9-hole loops, and each nine bears its own unique character. For example, the Oued nine have very narrow fairways and are arguably the most challenging nine, yet the Tamaris nine boasts many strategically placed water hazards. The Eucalyptus nine feature wider and fairer fairways, and are best suited to the more amateur golfers.

The championship 18-hole course consists of the Tamaris and Oued nine, yet the Eucalyptus nine should not be overlooked as it boasts several signature holes, namely the 587-metre long 8th hole, which features a challenging dogleg bearing to the right, and requires a tricky shot up towards a raised green for an elevated tee-off.
The Oued nine are situated in the more forested area of the course, and feature much luscious greenery and vegetation. Whilst this may be aesthetically pleasing, the forestry here can also be threatening with any wayward shots. The par-5 9th hole here bears possibly the greatest challenge out of the Oued nine due to its spacious irrigation pond which lines the hole. However, on the par-5 4th hole, players must conquer a raised green from an elevated tee placement.
The Tamaris nine boasts several putting surfaces, characterised by different hazards. For example, the 4th, 5th and 8th holes will long stay in your mind with the small water hazards protecting the greens here. The par-3 2nd bears the greatest challenge out of the nine, with a long, narrow three-tiered green.
