Monte Rei

The course measures just over 7,200 yards from the championship markers and with a dramatic finishing hole in the 550 yard par-5 18th there is sure to be some excitement when Monte Rei hosts a professional tournament in future years.

Although the course can satisfy the longest hitters it is around the greens where shots will be dropped, the subtle undulations on the putting surfaces as well as numerous runoff areas ensure that only the best struck shot will find the right part of the putting surface.

With this breathtaking golf course complimented perfectly by stunning views Monte Rei is a golf course that is etched on your golfing soul. Monte Rei Golf Resort is one of the finest holiday destinations to emerge in recent years. With an emphasis on service and five-star luxury, those fortunate to visit this luxury resort will have an experience that they won’t forget.

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. However, this option should be considered by the long hitters only and golfers should take caution of the lake before the green, ready to catch any mis hit approach shots.

Monte Rei is ranked as one of the best courses in Portugal

Excellent well appointed villas which are for couples or families. You have space and luxury to help you rest comfortably between the golf. Best to keep a car because of the location. Having your own transport helps to discover the restaurants in the many towns nearby which is highly recommended.

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.

Monte Rei Golf & Country Club

This is a world class championship course so he prepared to pay for errant shots. But the facilities, service and overall experience is one of the best o have experienced in the world after holding in more than 25 countries. Unbeatable.

Monte Rei Golf & Country Club

Staff when arriving at Monte Rei were brilliant and efficient. Had everything ready and waiting when we arrived. Quick to get us on the Tee off time. Course was a challenge but in great condition and we all loved every minute playing at Monte Rei. Few lads said it was a little over priced but these were in the minority and always complain at the prices we pay.

Fantastic course where I would say every hole played would be a stroke index 1 on any other course, the fringe around the greens were a little untidy but were having work done on them . 5 star treatment from the moment you arrive

Monte Rei Golf & Country Club

First class attention to detail from being met right through to the clubs being returned cleaned to our cars. Great course although tough and not suitable for high handicappers it rewarded good play and a solid drive and a long second set up a chance of points with an accurate approach. Expensive indeed but overall worth it.
