The Praia d'EI Rey golf resort lies approximately one hour north of Lisbon in a unique position that distinguishes it from other courses in the Algarve and the Lisbon/Cascais area. Directly facing the Atlantic, Praia d’El Rey was designed for generally windy conditions and occasional heavy winds in winter. This was accomplished by Cabett Robinson, a long-time chief collaborator of Robert Trent Jones, who succeeded in creating a links-style course in a picturesque seaside terrain. By preserving pine trees around some holes, the American was able to maintain the charm of Southern European golf courses which tend to have more trees than other areas, such as Scotland. After its construction in 1997, Praia d’El Rey was on track to become one of Europe’s premier courses. However, an unfortunate acceleration in ongoing property development in the area has led to nearby construction work, with an negative impact on the course.

Magnifique parcours situé dans un complexe hôtelier et proche de l'Océan Atlantique. Le parcours est très intéressant, varié avec deux parties bien différentes avec des trous souvent boisés sur les 9 premiers trous. Le retour est peut être un peu plus facile même si certains départs sont compliqués car ces trous sont en bord de mer. Le vent est forcément présent sur cette partie du parcours. D'ailleurs, le golf offre des vues impressionnantes sur l'océan à de nombreuses reprises. Le parcours est relativement difficile par moment, un index minimum est donc exigé pour jouer ce golf. Le parcours est très bien entretenu avec des départs, des fairways et des greens qui sont à la limite de la perfection. Le club-house est lui aussi agréable et très moderne. A cette période (Juillet), c'est la moyenne-saison au Portugal, le rapport/qualité-prix est donc excellent car le golf est somptueux. Ce golf fait partie de mes favoris et est souvent cité dans les classements de parcours de golf comme étant un des meilleurs du Portugal et d'Europe. Je vous conseille donc de le jouer, vous garderez un merveilleux souvenir.
