Last October under the banner of entertainment, festivities, local culinary delights, red carpet, celebrities and a legendary firework show, the Mazagan Beach Resort opened and now celebrates its first anniversary. 3.1 billion Dirhams were invested to complete the first phase of this project which falls under the “Plan Azur”. After 21 months of work during which 3800 people worked tirelessly Mazagan Beach Resort was unveiled: 500 rooms and suites, a Club Lounge, 11 bars and restaurants, a spa, a Sanctuary nightclub, one of the largest Conference Centers in the region, 67 villas and an 18 hole links golf course, designed by Gary Player!
Gary Player was at Mazagan Golf Club on Friday, November 12, 2010, to celebrate the first anniversary of the course he created with enthusiasm. The iconic South African with the career Grand Slam and a total of 18 Majors gave a clinic and then meets all the players on the signature hole, the 15th, a beautiful Par 3.
Beautifully situated along a 7 km Beach on the Atlantic Ocean, the links golf course at Mazagan Golf Club features the contour of the beach dunes and natural terrain.
Since its opening, the course has been praised by several who have discovered a championship course designed on an exceptional site with unique views overlooking the ocean and the bay of El Jadida.
Very technical holes offer golfers a few “heroic shots” in the words of Gary Player, largely caused by wind but also due to the undulated fairways.
Particular attention paid to the environment: preservation of dune vegetation during the construction and sprigging of “Platinum Paspallum”, a grass that accepts foolproof brackish and recycled water.
Gary Player, who sees the development of golf as a powerful catalyst for tourism in Morocco, said that Mazagan Beach Resort has quickly become a forefront golf destination.
Mazagan Beach Resort has become in just one year the new tourist destination recognized both nationally and internationally, known for golfing, business, leisure, SPA, gastronomy etc. Only three hours away from all European capitals, Mazagan Beach Resort offers: luxury, sea, leisure, a links style golf course, a SPA managed by ESPA and a true change of scenery, in a year round temperate climate. For the region of Doukkala, who lives mainly from fishing and agriculture, the Resort has helped transform the area from an agricultural to a tourist spot hosting national and international tourists.
Today, customers of Mazagan Beach Resort, whatever their nationality, are composed of several categories: Couples, families, golfers, or business customers who come to sign their conventions, for meetings, to launch products, for training etc.
