On the Atlantic coast, Rabat is the national capital and one of Morocco's four imperial cities (Rabat, Meknes, Fez and Marrakech). The city was successively settled by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, and Romans. Rabat's landmarks include the ancient Medina, the walled district Kasbah Ouadaias, the Hassan tower and the Mohammed V Mausoleum, dedicated to the architect of Moroccan independence.
All in all we consider that the city is worth a short stay mainly to play the world class Royal Dar Es Salam Golf Club.
Golf in Rabat
Rabat's Royal Dar Es Salam is Morocco's foremost club and boasts one of the world's best courses - the club has a total of 45 holes designed by Robert Trent Jones. On the heights of Rabat, nestling in a oak and eucalyptus forest overlooking the capital, Dar Es Salam was created in 1971 by the wish of His Royal Majesty late King Hassan II, a keen golfer himself who entrusted Robert Trent Jones Senior to design this formidable piece of golf. Dar Es Salam Golf Club is also home to the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation and venue of the annual Hassan II Trophy, which has seen the likes of Payne Stewart, Severiano Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Gary Player and Sam Snead competing in this prestigious event.
