The Gary Player-designed North course at Golf de Mogador is set within what was once a dense forest on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, just to the south of the old 16th century town of Essaouira. Opened for play in 2010, it’s the first of two 18-hole layouts that are planned to operate within a massive 1,450-acre property. As at the end of 2015, thirteen holes on the new South course had been fully prepared and the remaining five holes were scheduled to be brought into use some time in the future.

Laid out on sandy soil close to the coast, Mogador’s outward half ends with a very long, demanding par four that plays uphill to a false-fronted green. On the back nine, the right doglegged 17th is regarded as the signature hole, heading uphill towards a well-defended putting surface.

There’s a splendid set of par three holes on the card – varying in length from 140 yards to 220 yards – and the pick of these is probably the 207-yard 11th, set amidst the dunes. The most difficult hole on the course is kept until very last, where par at the very long 18th is protected by a cluster of fairway bunkers and a fall-away green.

Gary Player

The Black Knight’s playing record is exceptional, he’s one of only five men to win golf’s career Grand Slam, and since the early 1980s Gary Player Design has also been rather successful.
