Set in 1,000 acres in the Eastern Algarve, between the Serra do Caldeirão mountains and the Atlantic Ocean lies a haven of peace and tranquility that is the jewel in the crown of Portuguese Golf – Monte Rei.

Jack Nicklaus’ signature golf course is the “toast of the coast” and the best maintained course of the Algarve. The breath-taking course together with highest levels of service make for an experience like no other. Monte Rei is worth the approximate 1-hour drive from most Algarve hotels. The course winds up and down hills through the thick woodlands and offers many gorgeous inland views. Upon arrival, you will be given “5 Star” attentive service, valet parking, range balls and your cart, which is included in the cost of the green fee. The clubhouse is the best in Portugal and a great day is always in store at Monte Rei GC, which is rated the best golf course in the Algarve.

“Couldn’t have asked for a better golf experience overall, and have to add that Phil’s hole-in-one in the wind at Ardglass #2 really put the icing on the cake (at least for him)! Our sincere thanks for your attention to detail in the planning and arrangements for a truly outstanding NI golf experience!”
