Morocco / Mogador

 

Royal Golf in Morocco

GOLF IN MOROCCO is well known. The “old” King Hassan II was a “keen golfer” and the courses here are high class. The present HRH Prince Moulay Rachid is an interested and very good golfer and he is keeping the Royal tradition for golf alive.

The golf “resort”,  Golf Mogador is built on an undulating beautiful preserve next to the Atlantic Ocean. It has been designed by Gary Player and the practice areas, range, academy and all golf holes are of the highest standard.

Fairway at Mogador Golf with typical "Gary Player Bunkers"

When Gary Player designed  the course and the practice facilities it was highlighted from the very beginning as “a pearl” in world golf.  It is a new 36-hole (at the moment 27 holes, with an additional 9 used for training) establishment with very good practising/training facilities/nice golf. Its extremely relaxed atmosphere makes it to a perfect place for learning and practising. It has already been awarded as one of the best new 20 golf resorts in the world by World of Golf.
