Overview

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 golf courses in Europe? No way! Although lay out and scenery is qitenice, this is definitely not one of the best. Course is quite challenging, fairways and greens are in good condition. But the ugly architecture surrounding almost every hole! Hurts...More

The slogan is "where the green meets the sea". Half of the course is essentially links but the sea is the Atlantic and we played in freezing 30km winds. If you strongly believe that golf is a game for all weathers you will be fine....More

We played a round of golf here at the end of September. Conditions were what you would expect from a resort golf course and prices were good. Rental clubs were Titleist and fine. Course was not too challenging so all levels will do well here....More

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.
