King Hassan II Trophy and Rabat, Morocco

The 36th annual King Hassan II Trophy was contested in Morocco's capital city of Rabat Nov. 5-9. It was founded by King Hassan II, who passed away in 1999. This year, the golf tournament was presided by the country's Prince Moulay Rachid and is one of Morocco's most prestigious international sporting events that draws an international field and audience.

Contested at the Royal Dar es Salam Golf Club, the field featured 24 pros from both the men's and women's tours, including Ernie Els, Paul McGinley, Johan Edfors and the United States' Mark O'Meara. On the women's side, Laura Davies headlined a competitive women's tournament for the Princess Lalla Cup.

Here is a look at the week's festivities and also some photos of the historic Moroccan city itself.
