Set in over 1,000 acres of glorious countryside in Portugal’s unspoilt Eastern Algarve, Monte Rei Golf & Country Club is firmly established as one of the jewels in the crown of European golf. The centrepiece of Monte Rei is its Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, Monte Rei North. Each hole is an individual design triumph, blending effortlessly into the natural canvas; from its ingeniously shaped and sculptured bunkers, to the attention to detail which makes every hole as remarkable as the next.
The course at Monte Rei is consistently praised for the quality of its design, pristine conditioning, tranquil setting and service excellence, both on and off the course. The standard of service is unmistakably excellent, with the golf team taking the utmost care of their guests from the moment they arrive to the time that they leave. Intervals between tee times are always a generous 12 minutes, so play is never rushed and there is always time to fully appreciate this world-class course. Monte Rei’s practice facilities are equally impressive with pyramids of complimentary, top-quality balls to help you warm up on the driving range and short game practice areas before you head for the first tee. There are also unrivalled teaching facilities, overseen by a topflight team of PGA pros available for members, guests and visitors to use.
The North Course – the only Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in Portugal – will soon be joined by a second course, also a Jack Nicklaus Signature. Construction on the second course begun in spring 2019, and when this course opens for play, it will make Monte Rei a true world-class golfing destination, and one of a select group of golfing destinations worldwide to showcase multiple Jack Nicklaus Signature courses.
