Golf holidays in Morocco combine top golf courses on the coast of North Africa, contemporary designer villas, and an Arabian Nights atmosphere.
Essaouira (Arabian: as-Sawirah meaning \"The completed one\") is a port town on the Moroccan Atlantic coast with a small island off the shore called Mogador. Mogador is the name given to the city by its Phoenician founders. It was later ruled by the Carthaginians and Romans. The new 5* Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa Resort has been built here on truly historic ground (opened in March 2011). It comprises a golf hotel, 28 villas and a Gary Player golf course which has been open since 2009. All golf villas have heated pools, terraces and gardens and meet the highest standards for both accommodation and service. For example, the 24-hour butler service ensures that villa guests want for nothing during their stay. Choose between the four restaurants and two bars in the resort.

Par 72 / 6,559 metres. This Gary Player-designed 18-hole links course directly on the Atlantic Ocean already counts as one of the prettiest in Morocco. The facility was expanded in 2011 by an additional 18-hole course. The North course has been in operation since 2009 and is a genuine challenge for golfers, however is also playable by golfers of all handicaps thanks to its six tees per tee box. Fast greens and the typical difficulties to be expected on a Gary Player course await golfers at the Golf Essaouira Mogador North.
The front nine of the second 18-hole course, the South course, can already be played and stretch through a hollow filled with pine trees. During the course of a round here there are views to the sea, however protection from the wind is offered by the woodland. The opening of the completed Golf Essaouira Mogador South course is planned for the spring of 2012.
