Morocco: Golf Activity Holiday
North Africa's Arabian Arcadia
Golfing holidays are becoming increasingly popular in Morocco. The late King Hassan II was a keen golfer and instigated the building of many of Morocco's courses. Morocco's capital city, Rabat has an excellent 45-hole golf course, the Royal Golf Dar-Es-Salam. Each November, it hosts Hassan II Golf Tournament. Its 18-hole red course has been rated among the 100 best in the world by Golf magazine. In addition, there are at least ten international standard 18-hole golf courses throughout the country and over a dozen smaller courses. All of them are within easy reach of Morocco's major cities. A number of tour that operators specialise in golf holidays include Morocco in their list of better known golf venues such as Spain, Scotland, Florida and Ireland. A typical, one-week package to the golf courses of Agadir and Marrakesh will cost between £598, with four-star accommodation and £818, with five-star accommodation. Prices include land transport, accommodation (based on two sharing) and meals, but not the flight. Morocco is an excellent location for a golf holiday.
