Morocco

Morocco is situated on the north western corner of Africa with Algeria to the east and Mauritania to the south. The Moroccan coastline stretches from the Atlantic, past the Strait of Gibraltar into the Mediterranean Sea, giving the country significant strategic control over traffic entering and leaving the Med. Most of the thirty million residents of “the Western Kingdom” – as its Arab name translates to – live to the west of the Atlas Mountains as the inhospitable Sahara desert lies on the other side of this range running down the spine of the country.

Marrakech attracts the bulk of the tourists and Fez is a major cultural and religious centre but the coastal cities of Agadir, Casablanca, Rabat and Tangier are where modern day Moroccan movers and shakers operate. It’s also where many of the top Moroccan golf courses are located, with some long established courses – Royal Tangiers Golf Club was formed in 1917 – as proof of a strong golfing tradition dating back almost a century. It's a pity European golfers have been slow to recognise such an accessible, affordable, all year round destination lies right on their doorstep because Morocco has much to offer by way of top quality courses.
