Troon is delighted to announce the signing of Bouskoura Golf City in Casablanca, and Atlas Golf Resort, Marrakech.
Both 18-hole courses join an already impressive portfolio of existing Troon-managed properties in the region, including the critically-acclaimed Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort in El Jadida. Bouskoura Golf City, designed by golfing legend Tony Jacklin has been strategically located on the edge of Bouskoura National Forest, within easy reach of Casablanca and one of the city’s newest business hubs. Atlas Golf Resort on the other hand is set amongst palm and olive trees, offering stunning views of the snowy peaks of theAtlas Mountains. With Troon at the heart of both developments, the courses will become an integral part ofMorocco’s growing golfing culture.
“There is much anticipation surrounding both new developments inCasablancaand Marrakech. Both properties have the opportunity to establish themselves as leading leisure attractions inMorocco’s broader golf and tourism plans,” commented Bruce Glasco, Managing Director Troon EMEA. “Moroccohas the potential to become one of the world’s most intriguing new golfing nations, something we recognised at Troon when we first began discussions with some of the country’s most stunning golf developments a number of years ago. As both of Troon’s newest Moroccan additions take shape over the next 6 months, we are confident that they too will become highly-sought after amongst locals and international guests.”
Bouskoura Golf City looks set to attract international business thanks to its easy access to Casablanca International Airport, and bring a plethora of golfing visitors to the venue and the surrounding regions. Initially 9-holes will open for play in September 2012, with the full 18-hole course set for completion in 2013. It will be supplemented with state-of-the-art practice facilities that have been designed to welcome players of ages and encourage family participation. Meanwhile, Atlas Golf Resort will become the main sporting component of an extensive development that will feature two stunning new hotels, as well as several residential offerings that frame the golf course. Both golf course’s development and operation will be led by Troon, as they strive to offer the outstanding service synonymous with the Troon brand.
