Testimonial about Women’s Golf Day from Morocco – Asmaa Bensalah at the Royal Dar Es Salam Golf Course in Rabat, Morocco


“The Women’s Golf Day experience was very positive, particularly for young girls and women who had never played this sport. They discovered the athletic and playful side of golf, They laughed a lot, because obviously some golf shots were funny. They found the putting to be the easiest. The women who played 9 holes, they were able to discover each other and they made friends. That was a beautiful, positive day for the golf club as well.” – Asmaa Bensalah
