Set against the backdrop of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, Assoufid Golf Course winds its way through a unique, naturally undulating desert landscape.
As his first golf course design project, Scottish designer and former European Tour player, Niall Cameron, had the vision to create a desert-style golf course that would look and feel as natural and as integrated into the existing landscape as possible, while maximizing the beautiful views of North Africa’s Atlas Mountains to the south.
Assoufid Golf Club recognizes the importance of protecting and enhancing its natural environment, in which only 45% of the golf course was planted to minimize water consumption. During construction, a significant number of trees found growing on site were retained, and many more have since been planted, including palm trees, cacti and olive trees.
Awarded 'Africa's Best New Golf Course 2014' by the World Golf Awards.
