Michlifen Golf & Country Club, the first Jack Nicklaus Signature mountain course in Africa

An exceptional site and course in Morocco

The Michlifen Golf & Country Club boasts a majestic, preserved natural setting in the heart of the Middle Atlas, a region known for the charm of its Alpine-style architecture. This superb 18-hole course is located at an altitude of 1650 metres, amid stunning mountain landscapes with evergreen oak and cedar forests. 

The course is dotted with breathtaking panoramic views, stands of hundred-year-old trees and rocky outcrops that are a reminder of the force of time. The Michlifen Golf & Country Club awaits you for an exceptional experience surrounded by nature.

“The site in Ifrane and for the Michlifen Golf & Country Club is one of the most scenic, beautiful vistas you will find for a golf experience.”
Jack Nicklaus

Jack Nicklaus – a world-class signature 

The course was designed by international champion Jack Nicklaus, who has created prestigious golf courses around the world. This is a first in North Africa. To create the course, this undisputed golf expert took the time to familiarise himself with Ifrane’s nature and landscapes, which are unique in their beauty and power. He designed this 18-hole course in total harmony with nature.

Throughout the course, Jack Nicklaus, winner of 18 major championships, has successfully brought together the game and the environment, technical requirements and sporting pleasure, variety and high standards. This is a great achievement and all players, whether amateurs or professionals, will appreciate the very high level of quality. 

“I am one who does not single out holes, and I certainly don’t believe in a signature hole when I have been given the mandate to create 18 equally spectacular holes. But when assessing these breath-taking views at Michlifen, they are truly taken into full breadth at Holes 9, 17 and 18.” 
Jack Nicklaus

A warm and refined club house

The Club House of the Michlifen Golf & Country Club offers an ideal place to get together. Before or after an 18-hole round, professional and amateur players share their love for the game here. Tips, brilliant and funny stories, and experiences are shared in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. 

Friends, families and guests meet at the Club House to simply enjoy time together in the elegant, warm and comfortable setting. The spacious interior, with Timahdit stone and solid wood features, beneath the sloping green tile roof, reflects the beauty of the site, offering simple and authentic refinement.

Lunch outdoors at the restaurant, with a panoramic view over the surrounding mountains or the greens of holes 9 and 18, an aperitif in the lounge around the large fireplace when the weather gets cooler, gourmet snacks to be enjoyed seated comfortably… Everything is so easy and pleasant.
