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
ome 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.
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.
