The Tony Jacklin Casablanca opened in June of 2014 after three years of intensive design and development work. Nestled on the edge of the picturesque Bouskoura Forest, the course was designed for golf enthusiasts of all abilities, from novices to world-class pros, and wonderfully complements the newly-built Bouskoura Golf City complex, just minutes away from Casablanca’s Mohamed V International Airport.
This really is a dream location, featuring a wide variety of parkland holes with incredible views of the Forest. The 7,024 yard course is scattered with challenging water hazards and purpose-built artificial lakes dedicated to capturing rainwater to irrigate the greens and fairways on all 18 holes, all year round. In addition to the top quality driving range and clubhouse, players can take advantage of the Tony Jacklin Casablanca’s first rate golf academy to hone their skills and the course sits right next to the excellent apartments, shopping area and amenities on offer at the Bouskoura Golf City Resort. In fact this beautiful course is visible from almost every building in the complex.
The two-time Major winner and four-time Ryder Cup Captain, led his team under the Tony Jacklin Course Design banner to draw up plans for this alluring course alongside leading golf architects, Blake Stirling and Marco Martin, who head up the Madrid-based Global Golf Architecture Company. Tony was involved closely with the project throughout, from the initial planning stages to the final details of construction, and was incredibly proud of the end result.
At the June opening he said, “I get a great sense of satisfaction seeing all of our plans come to fruition in such a fantastic way. When ideas form in your mind you’re never too sure how they will pan out in reality but this has gone way beyond my expectations.”
The design philosophy centred on enabling players of all ages and experience to enjoy an unrivalled 18 holes in one of the most arresting golfing environments on the planet. Simply put, the buzz words of the team were inclusivity and exoticism.
