Monte Gordo, which has a casino, and plenty of shops, bars, restaurants catering for all tastes, is located at the Eastern end of the Algarve, close to the border with the Spanish Costa de la Luz, and hence is away from some of the more overdeveloped holiday resorts in the area.

Nearby Golf Courses:

Castro Marim     Par 72 5774 mtrs  
 A firm favourite of many of our golfers, Castro Marim runs through undulating hills dotted with pines, and breathtaking views across the River Guadiana to neighbouring Spain.  The course will appeal to all standards of golfer, the challenge being to navigate the narrow, sloping fairways and small, testing, fast greens. A delightful course in beautiful surroundings, and one of the cheapest on the Algarve – great value!  Buggy recommended. 


Benamor      Par 71 5497 mtrs 
 Designed by Sir Henry Cotton, Benamor was the first course built east of Faro in the Algarve. An attractive, well maintained course, there are views to the Atlantic and Tavira Island to the south and towards the hills and valleys in the north.   The front 9 is relatively short and tight, affording good scoring opportunities before the course opens up on the back nine, where more water comes into play.   A popular choice for golfers of all standards.  


Quinta do Vale      Par 72 6207 metres
 The magnificent Seve Ballesteros designed Quinta do Vale course opened in January 2008.  It is situated right on the far edge of the Eastern Algarve, offering great panoramic views across the Guadiana River towards Spain.  This 18 hole championship course consists of 6 par 5’s, 6 par 4’s and 6 par 3’s.  The front nine has strategically placed water hazards on most holes which makes you think twice about club selection. The back nine, however, differs in character, and is a little more open, as it climbs to the highest point of the course from where the views are stunning. An excellent, challenging course offering a wide variety of holes. 


Monte Rei  Par 72 6567 mtrs 
 An outstanding course set in a beautiful location in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Algarve, with sweeping views of the mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. A Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, Monte Rei offers everything you would expect from this internationally reputed designer in terms of design and layout. The course, always immaculately maintained, is truly unique in the way it is incorporated into the surrounding landscape with each hole set completely away from any others around it. Every hole has 4 different tee-positions to suit varying abilities and there are challenges aplenty with the water, bunkers and surrounding thick rough just waiting to grab your ball. On every golfers must play list! 


Quinta de Cima       Par 72  6256 mtrs 
 This sister course to Quinta da Ria, Quinta de Cima  is a spectacular  course located within the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. There are views of the sea and mountains from anywhere along the course. Many of the holes are dog-legs with their greens are protected by bunkers and water, particularly the last three finishing holes. The main feature of the course is a stream that meanders through the course presenting a hazard from the tees. A great test of golf and enjoyable challenge for most players.    


Quinta da Ria        Par 72   6016 mtrs 
 Quinta da Ria sits in a beautiful location on the coast of the Eastern Algarve next to the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, with stunning views over the Ria Formosa estuary. A beautifully maintained course, the delightful front nine provides a comfortable start, but things start to get more challenging on the back, where the fairways lengthen and water appears, testing your accuracy  and challenging your card as you come to the end of your round of this lovely course.  One of the finest and most popular courses on the Algarve.


Costa Esuri Golf   Par 72 6472 metres
 An open, relatively long course with wide, well maintained fairways which allow your shots maximum run!  The course sits on the Guadiana River (the border between Spain and Portugal) and there are some spectacular views of both countries to enjoy.  There’s plenty of variety of holes, as the front 9 has a links feel to it, whereas the back 9 has a parkland design, and despite its length the course is fair to all standards of golfer and is easily walkable.  A popular, good value choice. 


Isla Canela  Par 72 6248 mtrs
 A relatively flat course,  Isla Canela winds through gently undulating dunes and is dotted with olive, orange, eucalyptus and palm trees.  Harder than it looks, accuracy is the key here, the challenge coming from the strategically placed water hazards and tricky approach shots to greens which most holes require.  An easy walking course that’ll get you thinking – and beware when the wind blows!
