French apparel and accessories brand Lacoste, the official sponsors of the Trophée Hassan II and Lalla Meryem Cup, hosted a clinic on the driving range at Golf de l’Ocean in Agadir on Wednesday. Lacoste continues to support both male and female golf.
Once again, the women and men from the Ladies European Tour and the European Tour get together in Agadir, Morroco, this week. This time, Lacoste players Grégory Havret, Alexandre Kaleka and Romain Wattel with Anne-Lise Caudal, Alexandra Vilatte and Jade Schaeffer entertained the gallery at the venue of the Lalla Meryem Cup, hitting trick shots, with entertainer Gregory playing all types of different shots.

The popular clinic gave children from the charity Birdies of Essaouira Association and the junior school from the Royal Club Agadir the chance to meet and learn from professional players. The Birdies of Essaouira association supported by the Lacoste Foundation will give almost 60 children aged from 6 to 14 years old, coming from 3 neighbouring villages in the Essaouira community, the opportunity to enjoy one hour of golf classes a week plus three hours per weekend at the Mogador Hotel resort.The golf school, which was opened at the end of 2011, has a team of professional teachers who impart essential values through the golf teaching, such as: self-control and self-challenging, tenacity, work, respect for others and the environment. The teaching and the discovery of this sport will represent future job opportunities in golf for caddies, teachers and in other golf related services. The best of the youngsters will perhaps become tomorrow’s Moroccan champions.
The Clinic is just one of many campaigns Lacoste participate in to help charities around the world. The brand is also proud of Lacoste Foundation, which aims to help young people, both in France and abroad, to find their way in life through sport.
