Monte Rei – The Ultimate Golfing Experience
Since Jack Nicklaus put the finishing touches to the golf course at Monte Rei, a certain aura has existed around the golf course. Situated in the hills about 15 minutes outside the popular town of Tavira, the word quickly spread among seasoned visitors to the Algarve that this place had broken the mould.
On arrival at Monte Rei, you are quickly introduced to the ethos that things here are a bit different. Your car is valet parked and you are welcomed to the clubhouse as though the staff are welcoming back an old friend.
You wonder how you will retrieve your clubs but this is quickly forgotten when you are acquainted with the pro shop staff. At Monte Rei they believe that you should not touch your golf clubs throughout your visit. This process includes your clubs being taken from your car by staff, cleaned and placed on your buggy. The same process is followed in reverse at the end of your round.
Once you have been given an informative run down on how your Monte Rei experience will pan out, you are free to grab lunch or coffee. Alternatively you can get stuck in to the golf experience. You might catch yourself overusing the word ‘wow’ throughout the day but the surprises keep on coming.
