The Hassan II Golf Trophy is a prestigious golf tournament that has been held in Morocco since 1971. Now, in its thirty-sixth year, this magnificent event has lured some of the world’s golfing greats to the shores of Morocco, including names such as Vijay Singh, David Toms and Payne Stewart. True to tradition, the Hassan II Golf Trophy will once again have a star-studded line-up for this year’s event, over which His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Rachid will preside.

Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, in Rabat, will host the 2008 Hassan II Golf Trophy that will take place between the 5th to the 9th of November 2008. Professional golfers from all over the world will descend on Rabat, as Morocco prepares itself for one of its biggest sporting events of the year. Two of the most talked about players that have entered into the Hassan II Golf Trophy is Ernie Els from South Africa and Paul McGinley from Ireland. The golf tournament organizers, Trophèe Hassan II Association, have ensured that the tournament will be professional and that golfers will have an unforgettable time in mysterious Morocco.

First prize is $150,000 USD, second place will receive $80,000 USD, third place is given $55,000 USD and the remaining funds are then distributed accordingly. The Lalla Meryem Cup will take place for the fifteenth time this year and is run alongside the Hassan II Golf Trophy. It is a tournament for female golf players that carries a total prize money amount of $120,000 USD, and organizers are very excited to welcome Laura Davies to this years’ event.
