What the club says: The first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses - "Monte Rei North" - opened for play in June 2007. This par 72 Championship golf course measuring 6567m from the Tournament tees is a truly unique design; with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes, the golf course features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s in a challenging and distinctive layout.

Amazing experience, staff were very welcoming and polite on this excellent resort. I really enjoyed this even if my golf was not very good, the course is well thought out and a lot of holes play longer than they look. You can get there nice and early to be taken to the range where a pyramid of golf balls awaits, then onto the practice chipping areas and putting greens, before teeing off.

Best Golf Course in the Algarve

Visited Monte Rei last weekend and was blown away by how good this course is. The facilities are exceptional, the course layout is great and, considering the monsoon we had that morning, the fairways were not too soft underfoot. We were all blown away by how well the course played and the views are stunning. If you only play one course in the Algarve, this is the one you must play. It's not cheap but that's because of how good it is. Slight negative was the food but it's not enough to stop us returning

Fantastic

Just perfect from start to finish. You are made to feel special all day and the course is challenging but not out of reach of the happy hacker. The fairways are soft and the greens fast, slightly scarily fast . No it's not cheap but treat yourself you won't regret it.

Wonderful course. Every hole individual from the rest and when you're on the course, it feels like you're the only ones playing as you generally cannot see other holes. A real challenge, especially when the wind gets up. Can't wait to go back again... comfortably in the top 3 courses I've ever played.

Playing at Monte-Rei is a ln all round luxury experience as well as a sensational game of golf. The service is exceptional from the moment you arrive. We had around 5 different people looking after us (taking us to the range with a pyramid of pro v1s, stocking up our carts with water, tees, ice towels, bringing drinks and snacks and ice towels on the 9th hole and cleaning clubs after we finished).
The course is truly remarkable. Each hole seems like a signature hole and gives a gorgeous photo opportunity.
Despite the beauty, it's s very challenging game of golf. You need to be consistently straight off the tee to keep it in play and also consider how you play your tee shot on everyhole in order to give you a good shot into the green and score well.
It's pricey, but worth every penny. A must do for all keen golfers in the Algarve.

Portugal's very best - but may be not again in 36 degrees!

BEST COURSE IN EUROPE (that I have played). Up there with Dubai courses. Amazing views, scenery, layout and playability. Expensive at about £150 a round but when you walk off and have a pint, get your memento of the day and pick your clean clubs up you feel it was worth every penny and more. Fantastic. Staff were awesome too.

Excellent all round, buggies were loaded with towels and water, ended the round with a bag tag with your name on, and then they cleaned your clubs. Course planners thrown in. Could not fault the service we received.
