Monte Rei

Algarve, Portugal

Rated by Golf Digest as the No.1 golf course in Portugal and No.27 in the world, Monte Rei North Course is a must-play on a Portugal Golf Vacation.

A famed Jack Nicklaus signature course, The North Course’s conditioning is immaculate, ensuring a world-class golf experience year-round. A highlight of the layout is the continual elevation changes, that result in a clear definition to each hole, with little visibility of adjoining fairways.

Monte Rei Golf & Country Club has begun construction on its South Course, another 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, which once opened will add the resort to a very exclusive list of destinations with two Jack Nicklaus Signature Courses.

The clubhouse and facilities at Monte Rei Golf & Country Club are exceptional, offering two restaurants, including a Michelin-star ‘Vistas Rui Silvestre’. Before your round, ensure you make the most of the amazing practice facilities, with the required cart and balls included in the green fee.
