Tetouan and the summits of the Rif,
close to a
charming seaside resort, the Royal Golf Club of Cabo Negro is the site of
a remarkable nine hole course conceived according to the purest British
tradition by Haw tree & Sons.
The round begins in front of a promontory surmounted by a white tower.
The fairways of the first two holes can well afford to be broad and
generous, for their greens are stoutly defended by dense shrubbery. And on
number three you must be careful of the dunes, the flowers and the water!
Number five, a superb par 5 on the side of a hill, is crossed by a stream.
Revised by Cabell B. Robinson, it terminates on an undulating green.
The ninth brings a return to tradition among the agaves and the mimosas.
And as for the tenth, for the moment that has to be played in the club
house, but not for long since the course is shortly to be extended to a
full 18 holes.
