The European Tour heads to North Africa for the 44th edition of the Trophée Hassan II. Morocco is becoming a great golf destination; hopefully you have read reviews of my trip to Marrakech and Essaouira, if not, please follow this link where you will also find a link to this year’s Morocco Festival of Golf, which is definitely worth taking part in and represents great value for money and you get to play on some stunning courses.

Anyway back to the Trophée Hassan II, which was first played back in 1971 and was the vision of Morocco’s King Hassan to bring the best golfers in the world to Morocco each year to compete in a major golf tournament. Today it’s his sons who have taken up the baton and golf in Morocco, as well as the Trophée Hassan II are prospering from the Kings foresight.

This year the tournament will be contested over the Robert Trent Jones designed Royal Dar Es Salam situated in the capital Rabat on Morocco’s Atlantic coast.

The are three courses that were carved out of the Zaers Forest, The Red which the men’s European Tour will be contested over and weighting in at 7,372 yards and The women’s European Tours Lalla Meryem Cup will be contested for over the Blue course.

There's also a 9-hole course. The course meanders through cork oak trees and features raised greens and splashed bunkering, with plenty of doglegged holes for the players to negotiate.

There are Roman column ruins between the 11th and 12th holes which were shipped in from the nearby ancient city of Volubilis.

The signature hole is the par 3 ninth hole where the tee shot has to carry a lily pond – complete with flamingos – to a shallow island green surrounded by flowers.

My tips to Win:

I am sure Paul Dunne 14/1 – with BetFred – will be kicking himself after his final round 71 in Spain which see him take the runner-up spot but miss out on the win. It has been a great couple of weeks for the Irishman with two Top 10s on the PGA Tour and then follow that up with his second place at the weekend. Paul was a runner-up finish here last year just losing out in a play-off and a Top 16 the year before over the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam course and I fancy him to be right in the thick of it again this week.

A couple of weeks rest should see a rejuvenated Joost Luiten 18/1 – with SportingBet – this week. Joost comes into this tournament on the back of a win and two other Top 11 finishes from his last four starts on the European Tour and with two Top 15 finishes from his two starts over the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam track I expect him to be in one of the final pairings come Sunday.

Three Top 5 finishes from his last five starts should see Jorge Campillo 33/1 – with BetVictor – in confident mood this week. Jorge has played over the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam track for the first time last year and finished inside the Top 20. As many of you know who follow my guide I have been saying for a while I think this guy is not far from his first win and in his current form I expect him to be challenging again this week.

My each-way tips:

I was surprised to see Nacho Elvira 60/1 – with SportingBet – this far down the betting odds especially after a great finish at the Open de Espana at the weekend, he may not be to happy with his final round but he shot two great back-to-back 66s in rounds two and three. Nacho has four wins on the European Challenge Tour and nearly won his first full tour victory here a couple of years ago losing out in a play-off, but I expect the buzz from performing so well in front of home support last week, we will see him back in the thick of it again here this week.

Robert Rock 70/1 – with SportingBet – looks like he could be on his way back and he has had two Top 15 finishes in his last four starts and fired a second round 65 at last weeks Open de Espana. Robert has won twice on the European Tour but his last victory was six years ago. Rock does have a good record over the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam course with two Top 10s from his three starts here and although he didn’t do so well in last years event I think these are great odds for the Englishman.

My outside tip:

Chris Hanson 125/1 – UniBet – doesn’t come into this week in great form missing three cuts in his last four starts. But Chris seems to enjoy playing the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam track and has finished inside the Top 10 on his last two starts here and at these odds I think he could be worth a pound each-way punt.

Longer odds:

Try Thongchai Jaidee 250/1 – with SportingBet

As always good luck
