Jack Nicklaus

“The golf experience at Monte Rei begins with a gorgeous piece of property. There were a number of wonderful trees throughout the site and a lot of movement on the property. That movement gave us a lot of ability to work through the valleys to create some wonderful strategy and shot values. We were not restricted with what we did there, so that allowed us to be creative but true to the land. The elevation changes also give the golf course spectacular vistas or views… certainly anyone who has the opportunity to play Monte Rei is in store for a wonderful experience.”

Jack Nicklaus

Jack Nicklaus is arguably the finest player ever to pick up a golf club. After retiring from the professional game in 2005 with 73 PGA wins (including 18 majors) under his belt, the Golden Bear became synonymous with the design and development of top-flight courses across the globe. A legend of the game, Golf Inc. voted Nicklaus the Most Powerful Person in Golf for four straight years between 2004 and 2007.

His Signature course at Monte Rei Golf and Country Club is regularly ranked as the best and most exclusive course in Portugal, the home of European golf, and has been challenging players of all abilities and handicaps from across the world since 2007.
