A unique location for pure pleasure
The Praia d'El Rey is located near the medieval village of Obidos and adjacent to the nature reserve at Berlengas Island, 45 min. drive from Lisbon.
Designed by the American architect Cabell B. Robinson, the Praia D'El Rey golf course has the characteristics of an authentic "links" (on the sea side). Praia d'El Rey is certainly one of the most picturesque layouts in Europe, set in extensive grounds of pine forest and undulating dunes with spectacular views over the Atlantic and the Berlenga Islands beyond. The Praia d'El Rey golf course is visually stunning and tremendously exciting to play. Because of the endless variations of the terrain you'll never play it the same.
One of the best golf courses in Europe
Cabell has designed Praia d'El Rey golf course to be the complete golfing challenge with bold deep bunkers, undulating greens, and natural sand border areas contrasting sharply with the lush green fairways.
Cabell feels very strongly that the golf course must be fun for everyone to play. Praia D'El Rey, rated 13th best course in Europe by Golf World magazine, has become one of the major golfing destinations in Europe.
Go deeper into the course
Especially over the last nine holes of Praia d'El Rey, the player is able to enjoy some of the most attractive landscapes and challenging golfing situations.
The whole golf course, however, allows plenty of sporting variety. Worth a mention is the view over Berlengas at hole 2, the beautiful scenery at hole 11, the view over the Atlantic Ocean all along hole 12 and at hole 14, the challenges presented by wind variation. Hole 17's huge extension (570 metres) makes it the second longest Par 5 in the country and one of the longest of Europe.
