The Moroccan Open was a European Tour golf tournament which was held in 1987 and annually from 1992 to 2001. There were several different host courses. This was the second European Tour event in North Africa after the Tunisian Open, but the tour eventually left North Africa to focus its global expansion on the established golf markets of South Africa and Australasia and the major growth region of Asia. In 2001, the prize fund was €651,337, which was one of the smallest on the tour that year.[1]
