North Course

This Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course 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.

Wide forgiving fairways weave through mature trees and valleys, creating a unique test on every hole alongside spectacular vistas.

South Course

The second course at Monte Rei, The South, will also be a Jack Nicklaus Signature course. The design has been completed by the Nicklaus team, following Mr Nicklaus’ site visit, and construction will soon begin. Please keep an eye on our News Section for regular updates.
