Enjoying a special climate and exceptional natural wealth, Taghazout Bay is based on a “new generation” resort concept, offering a wide range of activities throughout the year.
The golf course is currently under construction, and is being designed by Kyle Phillips, one of the hottest golf course architects working today. He is known for a growing portfolio of renownded masterpieces such as Kingsbarns and Dundonald in Scotland, Verdura in Sicily and the highly rated Yas Links in Abu Dhabi. The clubhouse fits perfectly into the landscape and enjoys an unobstructed view of the 18th green and over the Atlantic coast in the background.”
