The European Tour heads to North Africa for the 45th 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:

After his wrist injury and surgery last year Joost Luiten 16/1 – with SportingBet – has certainly got off to a great start this year with four Top 15s from his five starts which includes his third-place finish in Abu Dhabi. Joost has competed in this event for the last two years and has thirteenth and ninth place finishes respectively and I expect him to keep that upward progression going this week.

With back-to-back runner-up finishes and a six place in his last three starts on the European Tour Elvira Nacho 28/1 – with BetFair – should be in buoyant mood. Elvira lost in a play-off here three years ago and had a Top 25 last year after missing the cut the year before, but in his current form I expect him to be right in the thick of it again come Sunday.

This week’s defending champion is Alexander Levy 28/1 – with SportingBet – and he will be looking to put in a solid defence of his title. Alexander was one shot off the lead after the first round of the Oman Open but had to retire and I am hoping the rest and practice time will see him back to his best again this week.

Each-way tips:

Of his six starts on the European Tour this year Thomas Detry 40/1 – with SportingBet – has only finished inside the Top 15 once and although he has not missed a cut in those six events he has not really challenged. Thomas had a Top 20 finish here last year firing a final round 68 and I feel being back here may just be the spark he needs to get his season back on track.

Paul Dunne 40/1 – with SportingBet – lost in a play-off here two years ago on the first extra hole carding a six to Edoardo Molinari’s five, he also had a sixteenth place finish the first year that the Trophée Hassan ll moved to the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam course, but he did miss the cut last year. Paul has played steady golf this year, but the only tournament he has really challenge in was the World Super 6s where he had a third-place finish. Dunne also had a twelfth-place finish at the Corales Punta cana Resort & Club Championship on the PGA Tour and I think that will set him up to do well again here this week.

Outside tips:

A Top 20 finish at the Qatar Masters in his last event should see Bradley Dredge 80/1 – with Coral – in confident mood. Bradley teed it up at the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam track for the first time last year and opened up with a 67 which helped him finish inside the Top 15 and I feel that course knowledge will help him improve on that position this year.

Longer odds:

Try Alvaro Quiros 200/1 – with BetFred
