Noria Golf Club wins inaugural Golfers' Choice Award in Morocco
Over 250,000 golfers visit Leadingcourses.com each month. Based on their rankings, Noria Golf Club, with an average rating of 8,73, has been voted 'best golf club overall' in Morocco in the Golfers' Choice Rankings. The rankings for best golf club are compiled based on numerous aspects influencing the quality of the golf club, such as the golf course itself, the overall impression of the club, maintenance, facilities such as practice facilities, clubhouse and the perceived value for money.

Noria Golf Club at Domaine de Noria in Marrakech, Morocco, is a par-72, eighteen-hole championship golf course which is very well balanced in terms of length and difficulty. It winds 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 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.

"We are so proud and very happy that Noria Golf Club has been voted No.1 of Morocco in the Leadingcourses.com Golfers' Choice Awards 2016", says Estelle Boissieu, Directrice of Golf Noria Golf Club. "Consequently, we would like to thank golfers for their trust and sportsmanship and tell them to feel free giving recommendations and remarks in order to improve our services. We have a young golf course and an equally new clubhouse for sure, but the team is working hard to ensure the best quality to our members and visitors."

The number number 2 in the rankings is Assoufid Golf Club.
