Through each golf course and each golf competition, Morocco reveals itself to the world, conveying a golfing tradition charged with emotions and universal values. Moroccan golf is constantly reaching new heights, driven by enthusiasts who write a new page in this adventure with every swing.

With more than 60 million golfers by 2021, golf is the most popular individual sport in the world. Whether played with family or friends, golf offers sporting, physical and moral virtues that make it a beneficial activity. It requires physical ability, concentration, discipline, self-knowledge and mental strength, especially at high levels. From early childhood to old age, golf transmits values of respect, ethics, commitment, perseverance and fighting spirit, fostering personality development in children and helping the elderly maintain their physical fitness. With its constantly renewed challenges, golf offers opportunities for growth and attracts more and more young players, paving the way for potential champions.

Golf has been making its mark in Morocco for over 100 years, weaving a rich and exciting history. The Kingdom's first golf course was built in Tangier in 1914. Over the years, a number of golf courses were built, attracting an increasing number of enthusiasts and leading to the creation of the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation (RMGF) in 1960.

In 1971, under the enlightened impetus of His Late Majesty Hassan II, the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation organized an international sporting event, the Trophée Hassan II, the winner of which was awarded the famous Khandjar". This thoughtful choice, carefully considered by His Late Majesty, reflects the richness of Morocco's heritage and shines through with emblematic winners from diverse backgrounds.

Iconic names in world golf are part of Moroccan golf history, such as Santiago LUNA, who was lucky enough to win the precious "Khandjar" three times, or Payne STEWART, proud holder of two awards. Not forgetting other renowned legends such as Ernie ELS, Nick PRICE, Padraig HARRINGTON, Vijay SINGH, Billy CASPER and Lee TREVINO, all honored with this traditional dagger, a symbol of their victory and the excellence they demonstrate on Moroccan courses.

Since then, golf has become an ambassador for Morocco around the world.

Golf offers significant economic and tourism opportunities and has made Morocco a golf tourism destination of choice. The FRMG, as the governing body of golf in Morocco, works actively to promote, develop and support the sport at all levels, contributing to the development of Moroccan golf and its international recognition.
