We went to Monte Rei to play....
My golfing buddy had played Monte Rei on several occasions before, however it was my first time visiting the club. Everything about the experience was excellent, from the quality of the golf course, to the courteous and friendly staff members throughout the club (It was so enjoyable, we went back 3 days later!).
Monte Rei demonstrated a unique management skill that has long been lost on other courses around Portugal; the ability to adequately manage the starting times of golfers so they keep moving around the golf course without golf balls whizzing past them. 12 minute tee times and an awareness of ability level from the starter ensures everyone enjoys their round. Monte Rei is in a different class altogether compared to the courses in and around Quinta do Lago and Val do Lobo. I thoroughly recommend any avid golfer making the trip to Monte Rei and enjoying the 'Monte Rei Experience'. It is worth it!
Monte Rei is a very special course - good design, great condition and excellent staff friendship. If money is not an object highly recommend playing here. It was the only time in 7 courses we played in Portugal where you we given a cart with GPS, towel, tees, tee gift, clubs cleaned, directed to 1st tee and welcomed in the pro shop. T
Before heading out to Monte Rei you better make sure you know where you are going because the course is very difficult to find.
