Soon after being crowned, King Hassan II developed a passion for golf and began having courses built at every one of his residences. Coming upon a most promising 1100 acres outside Rabat, Morocco's capital city, the king created a sprawling 45-acre golf complex called Dar Es Salam. Wanting nothing but the best, he brought in Robert Trent Jones to design the layout, and two years after it was completed, in 1971. US Open champ Orville Moody won the first ever Trophy Hassan II competition on the club's Rouge Course. With plenty of length from the tips, the Rouge certainly puts players through their paces with holes that vary nicely and flow nicely. Jones uses water on his course subtly and to great effect, an excellent example being the 500-yard, par 3 9th. The clubhouse is welcoming, the practice areas well taken care of, and the caddies thoughtful and professional.

The course at Dar Es Salam is a great track. They lengthen a lot of holes and the grounds are fairly soft. Some holes are narrow and doglegged with eucalyptus trees and oak trees. The Club also offers some great practice facilities.

The Royal Golf Dar Es Salam is a private course owned by the King of Morocco. Only a few players get the opportunity to play the course during the year, so you can imagine the quality of it. Not a divot, perfect greens and fairways and penal rough. This is one of the toughest courses we play throughout the year with narrow fairways, thick rough and undulatting greens that were newly re-designed ahead of the 2018 Trophée Hassan II. Significant accuracy is obviously essential off the tee, but equally as important will be scrambling around the greens. There isn't a lot of room for error and it will definitely help if all aspects of the game are sharp! There is not much in the way of water hazards but numerous dog leg's and extensive bunkering still contribute to the test. Par three's are also amongst the trickiest here due to their length.
