Casablanca is slowly becoming another golf centre for Morocco as the sport continues to grow on the back of the new resorts and hotels that are springing up all over the country. Casablanca cannot yet rival other destinations such as Marrakech in terms of number of courses, but around Casablanca lies the excellent Mohammedia Royal Golf Club, the 9-hole Anfa Royal Golf Club and to the south Pullman Mazagan Royal Golf and Spa and the newer Mazagan Beach Resort.
This spectacular new facility is situated at Doukkala, 60 miles south of Casablanca, on the Atlantic coast. It is off the tourist track and close to El Jadida, a city which draw in lovers of history as well as other holiday-makers.
During the 16th century, the Portuguese occupied this region because of its high strategic value. They built the fortress at Mazagan which withstood attacks from the Moroccans for two centuries. Renamed El Jadida (The New) in 1832, it regained its Portuguese name of Mazagan under French protectorate, until its independence in 1956 when it became El Jadida once again.
