Praia D'El Rey Beach & Golf Resort

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1997

Praia D'El Rey Beach & Golf Resort: The first hole reveals the excellence of Praia D’El Rey’s upkeep, the second reveals the splendour of its setting beside the sea. No fewer than ten holes provide spectacular views onto the Atlantic Ocean, embracing all that you would expect from a seaside links golf course.

The layout's open, wind-exposed terrain has been skilfully developed to provide you with many memorable holes and golfing challenges. Fast, sloping greens, impressive bunkering and undulating fairways are all hallmarks of this wonderful course. The layout includes eight holes that weave their way through a more wooded setting, which occasionally opens out onto picturesque rural countryside. Within this more wooded stretch are some of the tighter driving holes, demanding accuracy from the tee, in addition to length. If the wind is blowing at anything more than a gentle breeze, then its your A-game you'll be needing, supported by good course management.

An increasing amount of real estate around the course has undoubtedly had an impact on some of its scenic qualities. However, the seaside holes and a strong layout continue to ensure Praia D'El Rey's membership of the elite of Portuguese golf courses, keeping it up there alongside the likes of Penha Longa, Oitavos Dunes and San Lorenzo ....... and perhaps the finest of all, Monte Rei.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
