Sotavento Golf Trophy wonderful courses

At the forefront of the tournament stands the illustrious Monte Rei Golf Course, a masterpiece crafted by the legendary Jack Nicklaus. Renowned for its impeccable design and unparalleled service, Monte Rei promises an unforgettable golfing journey amidst breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and lush Portuguese landscapes.

Meanwhile, Quinta do Vale, designed by the iconic Severiano Ballesteros, beckons with its scenic beauty and strategic layout. Golfers will play through rolling terrain and scenic vistas, all while enjoying the challenge presented by this reputed course near the Spanish border.

Completing the trio is Quinta da Ria, named for its stunning views along the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. Offering a more relaxed yet equally rewarding golfing experience, Quinta da Ria invites players to enjoy its flat layout and picturesque surroundings, making it an ideal choice for golfers of all skill levels.

Much more than a golf tournament

But the Sotavento Golf Trophy is about more than just competition on the greens. It’s a celebration of camaraderie and shared passion for the sport. Participants can mingle and unwind during the Welcome Cocktail Dinner at Octant Praia Verde, setting the stage for four days of golfing excellence and memorable experiences.

As the tournament draws to a close, players will gather for the prestigious Award Ceremony Dinner at Monte Rei, where outstanding performances will be honoured and celebrated. The excitement and anticipation are palpable, with prizes awarded for both Net and Gross scores and special distinctions for the longest drive and nearest to the pin.

In essence, the 2nd edition of the Sotavento Golf Trophy promises to be an extraordinary celebration of golfing prowess, camaraderie, and the unmatched beauty of East Algarve. As players tee off against the backdrop of Portugal’s stunning landscapes, they embark on a journey of skill, challenge, and shared passion that will last for years.

Fauna: golf courses are safety

Golf courses represent safety for all animals, whether they are “residents” or just passing through during migratory seasons.

There are golf courses that are authentic “reserves” due to the diversity and quantity of animals that visitors may observe while playing.

In the lakes of the S. Lourenço golf course (Quinta do Lago), next to the Ria Formosa, hundreds of birds can be seen all year round, and during the migration period, thousands of them stop off there, like at an airport… (the observation posts around the course are always very popular).

At Castro Marim Golf the diversity of birds is abundant, but the majority are rabbits and partridges, as on many other courses in the Algarve.

At this time of year, the golf courses with many fig trees (Palmares, Vale do Lobo, Vale da Pinta, Benamor, Quinta da Ria, among others) are a permanent habitat for birds.

Morgado do Reguengo e Álamos (Monchique) is the preferred resort for storks, the dominant species, but there are also frequent encounters with rabbits and partridges. Yesterday afternoon, around the lake bordering Holes 1 and 2 at Álamos, hundreds of storks sought the cool waters.

On all the golf courses, the only species that is not well received, but unfortunately “visits” many, is the wild boar, because of the huge damage it causes.
