Monte Rei, Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf CourseThe Monte Rei Golf Club is set in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Algarve, with sweeping views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.

The first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses - "Monte Rei North" - opened in June 2007. This par 72 Championship course measuring 6567m from the Tournament tees is a truly unique design; with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes, the course features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s in a challenging and distinctive layout. The course presentation is highly individual, each hole a design gem blending effortlessly into this natural canvas, from its ingenious shape and sculptured bunkers, to the impressive presentation and attention to detail making ever hole as remarkable as the next; fairways and greens are bordered by several lakes, indigenous plants, native grasses and trees adding drama to the landscape, and providing golfers with unforgettable moments to cherish in this unique and tranquil golf environment.

At Monte Rei, intervals between tee times are considerably longer than normal practice, golfers will be able to enjoy their game in a relaxed setting, and each hole will be yours for that moment, cocooned in your own golfing wonderland undisturbed by other players. And after your game, the clubhouse bars and restaurants are the perfect place to unwind as you enjoy the very best of Iberian cuisine and fresh local fare.

nte Rei Golf CourseThe Designer
For many, quite simply the greatest golfer of all time and for others the leading golf course designer of his generation, Jack Nicklaus the legend has created a golfing masterpiece that he can be justifiably proud of and you can enjoy.Since agreeing to design Monte Rei's first golf course, Jack Nicklaus has been a regular visitor to the development, personally overseeing the course's progress. His involvement and attention to detail speaks volumes, as Jack will only give the thumbs upon a Signature Course when he has been fully convinced by the project and commitment of its owners.

Jack explains his design philosophy: "When I design a course, my top priority is finding the features such as native trees, grade variations or natural wetlands that can enhance shot values or scenically frame holes. I let the environmental surroundings shape the holes, so they fit the terrain. I never try to force an idea on to a piece of land. Monte Rei will be no exception," adding, "It is always our goal to design the best golf course possible, and if by doing so we create the best course in Portugal, everyone will be pleased."
