Royal Golf Club, Agadir

Agadir Royal golf club

It all began when, in 1955, a certain Scottish golf enthusiast, named Wilson, dug a hole in what was then only a field. A few years later, another enthusiast, called Colonel Kamili, continued the work. He designed the nine holes and their triangular setting bordered with geraniums.

The Agadir Royal Golf Club is a par 36 course 3,600 meters long with fairways perfumed by pines, eucalyptus and mimosa, fragrances that blend with the tang of the nearby ocean ... It is a delightful course, but you must beware of the trees and the very dense undergrowth. The greens are broad, well defended b deep bunkers and groups of palm trees that close of the angles. The number three hole is particularly challenging, its splendid 469 meters and par 5 requiring particular skill on the second shot, to overcome the impressive water hazard.

After the game, players can meet and discuss their round in the panoramic club house, practically buried in a cascade of Bougainville area.

Take a talented and imaginative designer, a disciple of Robert Trent Jones, a superb stretch of gently rolling land with abundant growths of eucalyptus punctuated by expanses of water and you will obtain the magnificent Club Mediterranean Dunes Golf Course.

Cabell B. Robinson has incorporated a number of remarkable surprises into these three nine hole par 36 courses. The Eucalyptus, the blue course, is ideal for getting your hand in, but be careful! Hole number 8 is a real gem. Its green suddenly comes into view on the top of a hill surrounded by bunkers. Then, once the effort has been made, comes the reward; a magnificent, uninterrupted view of Inezgane

The Dunes Golf Club Agadir

The Wadi; the yellow course, needs much more skill. Hole number three, par 5, inspires fear and respect. Its narrow green is guarded by a lake, an embankment, a bunker and a deep depression. Good luck! For the Tamarisk, the red course, you will need all your clubs and all your best strokes. The ingredients; two lakes, fairways that appear reasonably calm and a moderately-sized eucalyptus wood. The last hole is imposing: a narrow par 5 that climbs uphill through the trees before gently sloping down to the green and the club

Golf in Morocco

This is very popular in Morocco, partly because of the Late King Hassan II was an internationally ranked practitioner of the game. Some of the best-known of the country's 16 golf courses are located at the Royal Dar es Salaam Golf Club in Rabat, which has three courses and annually hosts the internationally renowned Hassan II Trophy. Agadir has three courses: the Agadir Royal Golf Club is a par 36 while the beautiful Dunes Golf Club has three 9-hole par 36 courses (designed by a disciple of Robert Trent Jones). The third course, set around lakes, palm trees and eucalyptus, is the 5 star Golf du Soleil, which is a 27-hole par 72. The Marrakech Royal Golf Club is an 18-hole par 72 course located at the foot of the Atlas mountains. Marrakech has two other 18-hole courses: the Palmeraie Golf Club, designed by Robert Trent Jones in a setting with views of the Atlas mountains as well as easy access to the Atlantic beaches nearby; and the Amelkis Golf Club. Other 18-hole courses include Ben Slimane and El Jadida (both near the Atlantic coast), Mohammadia Royal Golf Club (near Casablanca) and the Tangier Royal Golf. Apart from the Hassan II Trophy (see above), the Moroccan Open and Hassan II Challenge are noteworthy tournaments. The Mohammed VI Golf Trophy is held in Dar Essalam Royal Golf course in Rabat at the end of March. Altogether, there are approximately 30 golf courses in the country, including several new ones.

Testimonials

We've posted a number of times here on Gadling about the impact of movies as a travel motivator. In other words, which movies portray a sense of place strong enough to make you want to visit?

Budget Travel recently came up with their own top ten "travel inspiring" movies released in the last year, with the Bourne Ultimatum coming in at number one thanks to six countries featured in the film and an exciting rooftop chase through the ancient medina of Tangiers (above).
