For those looking to play some of the best golf courses, not only in Portugal but the whole of Europe, the Algarve is a great draw. Many of Portugal’s best courses are situated in this southern region of the country and perhaps the pick of the bunch is Monte Rei North. The Jack Nicklaus designed course is not only considered to be the best in Portugal, but it is also often regarded as one of the best in Europe and its easy to see why.
Monte Rei North Details
Measuring over 7,000 yards and playing to a par-72, Monte Rei North is a championship course where water features heavily throughout. In fact, there are only seven holes on the course where water does not come into play so if you get nervous when playing around water hazards, be prepared for a good test. There’s a nice mix of holes, with eight par-4’s, five par-5’s and five par-3’s and each them blend nicely into the rolling terrain, making for a very flowing feel to a round of golf.
However, each hole comes complete with its own character and challenges, with fast greens protected by bunkers and water, tree lined fairways and tremendous views of the surrounding area. There isn’t one hole which plays the same and you must be on your game, to tame this course. A great example of a hole which combines much of what Monte Rei North is about, is the 13th hole. It’s a downhill par-4 with a fairway which has several bunkers at the exact point your tee shot will land, so you cannot afford to hit a wayward shot here or face an incredibly tricky second shot. The approach to the green is tough enough without playing from the sand, as water awaits in the way of a lake and once on the green, putting is not easy thanks to the undulating nature of the surface.
Water continues to come into play down the back nine and even on the par-5 18th hole, which is reachable in two for the big hitters in your group, a lake is in play for both the second and third shots. You do not want to spoil your card on the final hole and many players opt for the safety-first approach and play down the left side, in an attempt to completely avoid the water.
Your experience of playing at Monte Rei is not over having successfully negotiated the 18th hole. The impressive clubhouse awaits, offering luxurious facilities and delicious dining options. Head to Monte Rei North today, for one of the top golfing experiences in Europe.
Situated in the hills close to the town of Tavira and the Spanish border. Upon arrival, you know you are in for a fantastic day of golf and the attention to detail and service is excellent. The driving range is arguably the best in Europe and the perfect way to loosen up before stepping onto the first tee.
