The Golf du Palais Royal is a private course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. on the grounds of the Royal Palace in Agadir. Its doors open exclusively for the Trophée Hassan II.

The Golf du Palais Royal has hosted the prestigious Trophée Hassan II since 2011. As the location of the Moroccan Open in the 1990’s, the golf course remained in excellent condition and was left unchanged until the return of the Trophée Hassan II.

The Golf du Palais Royal is built for high level tournaments. Surrounded by majestic walls that stand in front of the Atlantic Ocean, this is a pure links course, with its bumpy fairways built on sand, and its greens sitting on formidable slopes.
