One of Portugal’s major golfing destinations, the 18-hole Praia D’El Rey Championship course is truly one of the most stunning in Europe. Surrounded by an extensive pine forest, this authentic links course was designed in harmony with the spectacular coastal landscape and boasts dramatic ocean views. Deep bunkers, sloping greens and sandy dunes contrast with the lush fairways and offer a stimulating challenge for all levels. Tremendously exciting to play, the 17th hole is one of the longest in Europe, with an extension of 570 metres. In 2009, Praia D’El Rey was recognised as the highest ranked Portuguese course in Golf World UK’s Top 100 Golf Courses in continental Europe.
