Welcome to Monte Rei – The Only Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in Portugal
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 tranquillity that is the jewel in the crown of Portugese Golf. The Monte Rei Golf and Country Club.
Everything about Monte Rei is driven by a desire to create a world class golfing destination – one which delivers the highest standards of excellence for discerning travellers and golf enthusiasts.
While Monte Rei may only be 30 minutes from the Spanish border and 45 minutes from Faro and its international airport, it’s a lifetime away from the hubbub of busy towns and cities – the idyllic setting for a peaceful, secluded haven, and the perfect backdrop from which to explore and enjoy this spectacular region.
With breathtaking views overlooking the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and towards the lake and the 18th fairway and green, our Clubhouse Residences typify all that is good about resort living – the very highest standards of architecture and design, combining the comforts of an exclusive hotel and the tranquility of a countryside retreat.
Surrounded by landscaped gardens and just moments from the magnificent and iconic Monte Rei Clubhouse, these contemporary two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses provide the comforts of modern living; where every element has been carefully considered, including a heated pool and gym.
Thoughtfully designed and beautifully appointed, each home provides: comfortable open-plan living spaces where floor-to-ceiling windows make full use of the natural light and warmth, well-equipped kitchens and outdoor terraces or balconies for outdoor living. All are fully furnished and ready for you to add your finishing touches.
Luxury, quality and exceptional service are the hallmarks of Monte Rei. As a resident or guest, you benefit from a variety of personalised services. A team of dedicated concierges is always on hand to help you arrange activities in the resort and also the local area, from travel arrangements, restaurant reservations, spa treatments and laundry to invilla dining and child minding
Jack Nicklaus is arguably the finest player ever to pick up a golf club. After retiring from the professional game in 2005 with 73 PGA wins (including 18 Majors) under his belt, the Golden Bear became synonymous with the design of topflight courses across the globe. His Signature course at Monte Rei Golf and Country Club is ranked as the best and most exclusive course in Portugal, and has been challenging players of all abilities and handicaps from across the world since 2007.
Set against the backdrop of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south, the 7182-yard, par 72 course blends seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. Four separate tees enable the course to be played by golfers of differing standards. It is a true challenge for the most accomplished and enjoyable for those who have higher handicaps. Wide forgiving fairways weave through mature trees, and alongside lakes on the approach to each manicured green.
Monte Rei is about to cement its place at the pinnacle of European golf resorts with work about to start on a second Jack Nicklaus Signature course. When it opens in 2021, the resort will be added to a select list of golfing destinations worldwide that have multiple Signature courses.
