Owner description: Praia D'El Rey is arguably one of the most stunning golf courses in Europe. It's set among extensive pine forests and undulating dunes, with spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlengas Islands beyond.The 18-hole golf course was designed by the renowned American golf architect Cabell B.Robinson and was inaugurated on 14th June 1997. Deep bunkers, sloping greens and sandy dunes contrast sharply with the lush fairways, making it the complete golfing challenge.Praia D'El Rey is rated amongst the top golf courses in Europe by Golf World Magazine and is one of Portugal's major golfing destinations for both private and sponsored events.The course is a mixture of seaside links and parkland holes with a par of 73, offering the golfer a unique experience. Players are required to have a valid golf handicap certificate. Minimum handicap requirements are men 36, ladies 36.Enjoy your game!

“One of the top courses in Europe for 49€ !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I am a 5-hcp player and have played golf arround the world for more than 40 years. This course is one of the most inspiring, challenging and fair top quality courses I have ever played. In perfe
In perfect condition and do weather the 49€ summer promotion gr.fee must be un-beatable. The variation of the layout from the pine forrest to the 8 oceanfront holes is unique. This course lives up to the cliche: If I am allowed only one course to play for the rest of my life...

“Great golf course but overwatered and can be slow!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This course has many great holes, a number along the coast. The links holes are not really allowed to be true links as they over-water them and so are often water-logged (even on dry, hot sunny days...). However we both really enjoyed it (handicap 10 and handicap 24)

As visitors (non-members), we were allowed to join a club competition and made welcome. However I would advise green fee players to make sure they don't play behind such competitions. This one was four-ball strokeplay and therefore took about 5 1/2 hours. I felt sorry for the 2-balls playing behind the comp.
