Where2Golf says: 

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.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
