Rabat – King Mohammed VI offered an official dinner on Saturday evening in honor of the guests of both the 45th annual Hassan II Golf Trophy and the 24th annual Lalla Meryem Golf Cup.
Rabat’s Dar Es-Salam Royal Golf Club is hosting both tournaments taking place April 16-22. Both feature top golfers from around the world. The 24th Lalla Meryem Golf Cup features some of the finest women golfers in the world.
Organized by the Hassan II Golf Trophy Association, both tournaments welcome over 250 international athletes annually, both male and female, to Rabat’s top golf course.
Morocco has established itself as a golfing destination, gathering together world golf champions for many years. At the 2017 World Golf Awards held in Cartagena, Spain, Morocco was named the best golf destination on the African continent.
Prince Moulay Rachid said in a statement published by the Hassan II Trophy Association that “Morocco aims at being endowed with elite performance and attractive golf infrastructures, that is how from Tangiers to Dakhla and from Rabat to Saïdia, dozens of golf clubs materialized and are giving birth to a new vocation among the youth on one hand, and on the other hand attracting sizable numbers of tourists who wish to discover the beauty and diversity of Moroccan golf courses.”
