Samanah Country Club is Nicklaus' first design in Morocco and it opened for play in 2008. Alain Crenn and Richard Hennessy, the managers of the Samanah Country Club, received the Award of Excellence in the “Golf Development” category in 2009. The course is located in south Marrakech, just next to the Royal Palm Golf Club and it is surrounded by enormous residential estates featuring luxury facilities.

The course at Samanah is more than 7,300 yards length from the back tees. Fairways are generally large, so you can use your driver a lot. Even if the tee shot is not perfect, you won't ruin the chance to reach greens because the rough is kept to a minimum. The 6th, 8th and 15th are among the featured holes. The par four 6th offers a birdie opportunity despite water hazard next to the green. The par three 8th is very tough, and save the par here is almost a miracle. On the back nine, the 15th is undoubtedly the most existing hole, with a second shot over a large gully. Samanah Country Club also offers great practice facilities and is often the meeting point of national elite teams.

Good Nicklaus track offering a good mix of long and short par 3s and risk-rewards par 5. One drawback: my caddy was useless...
