Milan – The International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) has named the Moroccan city of Marrakesh as the best Golf destination for 2015 in Africa and the Gulf region.
The announcement headlined the global golf tourism organisation’s annual awards Gala Dinner in Villa Erba, Lake Como, Italy on Saturday.
Morocco and Marrakesh were presented with this prestigious IAGTO Awards honour in recognition of the efforts deployed by the Moroccan National Tourist Office and particularly the local golf operators who ensure that international golfers enjoy the best golfing experience possible.
IAGTO’s third acknowledgment of Morocco as the best golfing destination in Africa and the Gulf States, voted for by more than 500 tour operator members of IAGTO in 62 countries, will enhance the attractiveness of the Moroccan golf courses and in turn, will encourage more golfers to visit the Kingdom.
Marrakech is Morocco’s golf city by essence, with more than 10 different golf courses, designed by famous names like Robert Trent Jones, Kyle Philips, Jack Nicklaus and Colin Montgomerie, among others, that guarantee Marrakech’s reputation as the best and the largest Moroccan golf destination.
Morocco’s open skies policy provides Marrakech with additional flights and connections from and to major tourist destinations making the red city even more accessible to visitors.
The environment protection being at the heart of the city’s policies, several new tourist and golf projects in Marrakech integrated in their business plans the preservation of its natural assets, particularly its water resources.
Marrakech has set up a new waste water treatment plant in order to connect the golf courses and resorts to a pipeline network of over 80 km.
