The 18th is an outstanding finishing hole. A long, downhill par 5, with a tempting play to go for the green in two, for those not feeling the weariness of the round’s golf.

Best course I've played in the Algarve
From the moment we arrived, Monte Rei was beyond our expectations. We were met in the car park and our clubs were put onto our buggies and were made to feel very welcome. The clubhouse is excellent with views across the course and surrounding countryside. The driving range and short game area is really impressive so would recommend having a go on here before heading out onto the course. The layout is great and very playable. Each hole is very separate from each other giving a nice feel of seclusion during the round. There are lots of good holes here but would say the par-5 18th with its grandstand finish of water lining the final part of the hole and protecting the green, despite my second shot finding the water, I left really impressed with the course and will be playing again next time we come to the Algarve.
