Noria - A Unique Golfing Oasis at the Foot of the Atlas Mountains
Noria Golf Club at Domaine de Noria in Marrakech, Morocco, is a par-72, eighteen-hole championship golf course that measures 6,589 metres (7,206 yards) from the professional tees. Amateurs will find enjoyment and challenge at one of the four alternate lengths that range from 4,579 metres (5,008 yards) up to 6,116 metres (6.689 yards). The two par-36, nine-hole loops, which are very well balanced in terms of length and difficulty, wind through olive orchards, lavender fields and desert landscapes before making a dynamic, parallel finish along a formal reflecting pool with the snow-capped Atlas Mountains and a dramatic, beautiful clubhouse providing a stunning backdrop.
The central feature is a magnificent traditional “basin” that splits the 9th and 18th holes and stretches away into the distance from the clubhouse to the far side of the site.
From a golf course architectural perspective, Noria Golf Club is easily the most unique golf course that Hills & Forrest have ever designed. The concept of blending three different landscapes (orchards and lavender fields, the desert and a formal “oasis”) was challenging, yet provided the basis for a golf experience filled with wonderful variety for the player. Added to this basic framework were lots of interesting traditional Moroccan features ranging from reflecting pools, cascades and basins to architectural elements such as bell towers and observation structures to desert oued (wadi), khettara, seguia (irrigation channels) and even the namesake noria.
The noria is a traditional Moroccan landscape feature and has been incorporated into the golf course design on the 15th hole, hence the name, Noria Golf Club.
Golf Course Architect
Noria’s architect is Steve Forrest from Hills & Forrest International Golf Course Architects. Their reputation has been built from a tradition of highly successful, widely acclaimed golf courses, Their mission is “to create memorable golf experiences” and Noria does not disappoint.
Designing courses for over 30 years, Hills & Forrest have designed well over 100 courses all over the world. Many of their designs are award winning such as Oitavos Dunes (Portugal), Half Moon Bay (California, USA), Sand Golf Club (Sweden) and Quail Hollow (Mississippi, USA) to name just a few.
From the Architect
The vision for Noria was to create a traditional Moroccan village that celebrated the architecture and landscapes of The South of Morocco. These landscapes include mountains, fields, desert, oasis, orchards, villages and palaces. The legend of Isli and Tislit, Morocco’s version of Romeo and Juliet, also became part of the marketing story.
Therefore, the golf course design incorporates these various elements into the overall plan. There are three primary zones—1) the olive orchards and lavender fields on holes 1 through 7, 2) the desert on holes 11 through 13, and 3) the formal pools and architecture found along the central axis that runs north from the clubhouse. The two lovers, Isli and Tislet, represented by the lake on hole 14 and a basin in the Village of Isli to the north, are forever linked by a water feature on hole 15.
