“This is definitely one of the most beautiful courses we’ve ever played on in Morocco!” Keskari said of Tazegzout Golf, which is located 20 km north of Agadir in Morocco: 

“The greens are pretty hard and fast, the layout is very diversified. That’s just my line!” 

McNamara made one birdie and three bogeys in a two over 74 to share 29th on two over and earn €343 while Stackstown’s Richard Bridges had two birdies, three bogeys and three double bogeys in a 79 to tie for 48th on 10 over (€130).

The EPD (Pro Golf) Tour continues in Morocco from March 6 with visits to Casablanca for the Open Tony Jacklin and Open Casa Green.
