North Africa's Arabian Arcadia
Golfing is 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.
