GOLF COURSE

The Royal Golf Dar Es Salam

Morocco’s capital of Rabat is home to the Golfclub Royal Golf Dar Es Salam. It lies on a 440-hectare, hilly terrain in the middle of an idyllic cork tree forest near the Atlantic coast. From Rabat’s city center, the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam golf club is easily reachable in about 15 minutes via Avenue Mohamed VI. It was founded in 1972 at the suggestion of Moroccan King Hassan II. and houses two 18-hole and a 9-hole course that were designed by the famous golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. The 18-hole Red Course with par 73 is the club’s championship course and was redesigned in 2016 by Cabell Robinson.

It has an impressive length of 6,702 meters and boasts large, partly elevated greens and numerous doglegs. The numerous bunkers make the course at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam very technical and demanding. Its signature hole is hole 9, at which an island green requires a 172-meter shot across a large lily pond. The 18-hole Blue Course is considerably shorter with 6,205 meters, features fast greens and several water hazards. Hole 11 is particularly noteworthy, with a narrowed fairway, a lake on the left side, and Roman columns from the antique city of Volubilis. Finally, the 9-hole Green Course with par 32 is a good place to practice the short game.

LOCAL INTERESTS

What to do in Rabat

Morocco’s capital, Rabat, is often overlooked by tourists. They may stop – but they don’t stay. It doesn’t necessarily have the allure of the more famous Marrakech or Fez. True, it has some sights, but not in the density or grandeur that visitors can find in other cities and so, for those on shorter trips, it slides down the list of places to see.

In truth, though, Rabat offers an interesting snapshot of the development of Morocco. It is really three cities in one.

It is an ancient city, with the first development starting in the 12th century. The walls around the old town went up and a fortress was constructed for protection and as a base of attack against Spain (then Iberia). But the expansion of the city was suddenly halted when its leader died and Rabat fell into decline for several centuries.

Morocco’s El Mansouri  wins on home soil as Nesterova continues to surprise

Hassan-El-Mansouri-World-Amateur-Tour-Dar-Es-Salam-22039

Home of the famous Hassan II Trophy, The Royal Golf Dar es Salam hosted the Morocco Heritage Championship for the first time and offered the players the greatest golf test ever with perfect conditions and very fast greens.

Under a beautiful sun Hassan El Mansouri started the first round with an excellent score of 35 points stableford which gave him a two shot lead over Bernard Jossein. The next day, the two players would offer one of the greatest duels ever in the history of the World Amateur Tour. After scoring 16 points each on the front nine, Hassan started the back nine with three very bad holes and opened the door to his opponent. The two players got to the 18th tee with the exact same score and only one hole to play. Finally, El Mansouri scored a wonderful par on that last hole to overcome Jossein.

Gregory Deglise-Favre finished 3rdand won the 1stSeries trophy as Vincent Danjoux seized the 2ndSeries trophy.

Irina-Nesterova-World-Amateur-Tour-Dar-Es-Salam-1864

In the Ladies Series, Irina Nesterova won the trophy by playing a very consistent two rounds to overcome Yulia Golubeva, and Anne-Catherine Robin, respectively in 2nd& 3rdposition.

The suspense is on as Golubeva has a comfortable advance but Irina still has a chance to overdrive her on the final stop in La Reserva de Sotogrande.

As Christophe Guedon didn’t score well this week, the ranking remains more than open before the last tournament to take place next month. The top seven players still have a chance to win the World Amateur Tour Champion’s Title.

The Race to La Reserva continues and all players will meet at La Reserva de Sotogrande from November 21stto 24th.

In this occasion we will celebrate the World Amateur Tour 5thAnniversary and present some special trophies and prizes.
