Monte Rei North – Portugal’s #1 Golf Course
Monte Rei Golf and Country Club’s North course is routinely ranked the best in Portugal and among the top 10 in Europe.
Set in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Algarve, the course has sweeping views of the Serra do Calideirao mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.
THE STORY BEHIND MONTE REI
This is one of the few Jack Nicklaus Signature courses in Europe and the first to reach Portugal.
In 2005, legendary course architect Jack Nicklaus was invited to build a course at Monte Rei. He only takes on those invitations when he knows that he can create a layout worthy of his name. He accepted the offer and ended up creating one of the best courses in Portugal.
Two years after opening, Monte Rei featured in the Top 100 Golf Courses outside of the US.
THE NORTH COURSE, MONTE REI
Monte Rei golf course is a truly unique design. With water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes, it features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s.
You will be teeing off from elevated tees that play onto flat surface fairways. There is plenty of space to hit into, so don’t be too worried if you slightly mishit your shots.
Monte Rei is a truly unique design that guarantees no hole here will disappoint. It is a thrill from start to finish.
Everything about this course is high-class from the conditions of the greens to the clubhouse and the service that you can expect to experience here.
THE SIGNATURE HOLE
The signature is the 14th hole. Considered the prettiest hole at Monte Rei, the par 3 will require you to carry over a lake to reach the green. If you don’t you will find nothing but a watery grave.
DID YOU KNOW
In 2019, Monte Rei will open a second Jack Nicklaus signature course in its resort. The South course has been predicted to follow in the same footsteps as its award-winning sibling, the North course.
