Located in the suburbs of Rabat, the administrative capital of Morocco, these Robert Trent Jone’s Sr courses not to be missed. With 45 holes- the par 73, 18 hole Red Course, the Par 72, 18 hole Blue Course and the nine hole Green course there is also a great variety of play.

Opened in 1971, The Red course at Dar Es Salem put Morocco onto the world golfing map. Home to the annual Hassan II Trophy and in rotation the Moroccan Open, the fairways of the magnificent Red course are lined with mature cypress, palm, eucalyptus and cork oak trees. With other trees and plants tended to by an army of gardeners and green keepers, including ficus, banana, papyrus, mimosa, rose, hyacinths, hibiscus and narcissi, there is a wonderful luxuriant feel throughout the complex. With heavily bunkered fairways, contoured, well protected greens and two large lakes, which influence 5 holes, this is a tough par 73 course.

A feature hole is the 189 yard, par three 9th over water to an island green. It is thought to have been Trent Jones’ first such design and has been much copied since.

Although when the last King of Morroco, a golf fanatic, played here, the course was cleared of all other golfers for his private use, the new king’s brother, a single handicap golfer does not demand such privacy.

The clubhouse serves an excellent lunch and there are superb practice facilities. This really is a golf Mecca.
