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!

Fantastic couple of rounds here, with some really memorable holes by the ocean on the back nine, and the 4th through the sand dunes in particular. Clubhouse veranda has excellent views of 10th and service very good.

This golf course offers so many great experiences. Not only is the ocean view spectacular but also the layout offers challenges and made our day one of those you just remember. The supporting services are very good and we enjoyed the day very much.

Sorry, Helen - didn't notice if there was a DVD player. The staff at Reception are very helpful, though. I'm sure they could organise one for you.
