Troon adds sixth Moroccan course

Troon Golf has added a sixth golf property to its Moroccan portfolio.

Palmeraie Development Group has hired Troon to manage PalmGolf Club Marrakech, whose original 18-hole layout was designed by Robert Trent Jones and opened in 1992. (A third nine, designed by Stephane Talbot, opened in 2008.) Bruce Glasco, the managing director of Troon’s international operations, called the contract a “testament to our ongoing desire to exceed expectations” and ability to deliver “an unrivalled visitor experience.”

PDG is familiar with Troon’s capabilities, as it employs the Scottsdale, Arizona-based firm at Les Jardins de l’Atlas in Marrakech and has hired it to manage the forthcoming California Golf Resort in Casablanca.

Troon’s other properties in Morocco include Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort in El Jadida and Oued Fes Golf Course in Fes.
