The Royal Golf Dar Es Salam or Royal Golf de Daressalam, abbreviated in Rgdes, is 15 km from the centre of the city of Rabat in Morocco. Located in the middle of the forest, the club covers an area of 440 hectares. Its construction is a royal initiative undertaken by the late King Hassan II, whose golf was the favorite sport. The architect is Robert Trent Jones. The current president is Abderrahman Bouftas.
It is the pearl of the Royal Golf of Dar Es Salaam, born for competition in 1971. Its route has been designated as the most difficult on the European circuit, to which it now belongs thanks to the Moroccan Open.

Its hole number 9 is famous all over the world: a large lake, a green right in the middle and 172 meters to play entirely on the water or, better, above the water lilies!
Entertaining and varied, the Blue Course often hides its fast greens after the angle of a dog-leg or behind the movement of a fairway.
On the tracks of the Blue Course designed by Trent Jones, improvisation has no place! If the Red Course is particularly long, the Blue also knows how to be. For example, the eleven is one par 4 of 405 meters, captivating both by its beauty and its difficulty.
Trees and brambles narrow the fairway running along a lake embellished with two large mimosas that will not stop the ball, obviously destined to end up in the water!
This nine-hole course was designed for a quick tour at lunchtime or a lesson on the course, for less competitive and more entertaining golf with friends. Its layout is certainly built on simpler concepts, but without departing from variety and movement.
Here, there is no room for par 5, but four par 3 offer a length of 130 to 180 meters with various and playful solutions, within a generous nature which welcomes graceful spades, small white birds with long legs and orange beak…
