Uncompromised Learning

Golfers often struggle to take their learning to the course so I have put together this game-changing golf school. 5 days of coaching a playing one of the best courses in the world will make a real difference to your game but most of all, it is amazing fun.


What to expect at the #1 ranked course in Portugal.

Join Noel on the Winter Academy at the stunning Monte Rei Golf & Country Club and develop your game ready for the season ahead. The combination of structured coaching each morning and playing with Noel in the afternoons affords the opportunity to have an holistic view of your game.

The Coaching

Each trip consists of only 6 golfers and all coaching is with Dr. Noel Rousseau. You will have 2.5 hours coaching each morning then play 18 holes in the afternoon, of which Noel will play 9 holes with your group.

The instruction is individually tailored to your goals with a mix of group and individual coaching sessions throughout the week.

Most importantly, the trip is 100% player focused so the format can be flexible enough to ensure that everyone has a productive and memorable week.

The typical group has a range of handicaps from 4-20. This is not a trip for 'elite' players but for anyone who loves golf and learning.

As quoted by one of the repeat guests,

"this is the best week of the year!"

What our guests think...

"It certainly was a great week.  I didn’t know quite what to expect, but it exceeded my expectations. I think that we accomplished so much in a short period of time and none of it felt rushed which was a key point for me. It goes without saying that the golf course and accommodation was excellent, I've already recommended it to a few friends"

"‘An unbeatable combination of practice and instruction in the morning followed by a round of golf at one of the best courses in the world.’"

"The coaching lived up to my expectations & the facilities are amazing, it is a first class golfing venue & certainly lives up to its reputation of being the #1 venue in Portugal. I played my first game since returning from Monte-rei this weekend & the results are amazing, driving further & straighter & no more bunker fear.   I am looking forward to returning next year already ! Please reserve me a place "

"I sincerely enjoyed my time with you and it was all I was hoping for.  Next to the great weather, a fantastic golf course, a very fun group, I truly enjoyed the coaching input I have received.  It became even more clear for me of what I need to work on with my swing in the coming weeks and I am sure it will improve my golf in the medium term. The beginning however is tough, but I believe of what you were preaching... Playing out of the bunkers and also the putting have improved instantly, which were on my list of things I wanted to do better.  "

"Noel works hard to put together a highly personalised programme of development that works on both the strengths and weaknesses of each participant's game. Aside from technical skills, they focus a lot on course strategy and playing smart golf, a big improvement from simply smashing endless range balls. Add in the opportunity to put everything into practice on one of the finest courses in Europe each day, and I've come back a more complete player across every aspect of my game."

"Just a brief note to thank you for a thoroughly memorable, enjoyable and inspiring few days at Monte Rei last week. It was a real pleasure to tread the fairways alongside players of your quality hitting great shots, and on such a fine course. What an experience. Occasionally it even rubbed off on me! As did the excellent company of the people in our group. I learnt a lot from the tuition and have come away with much more confidence in my putting, pitching and bunker play in particular. Plus some key swing and attention notes to work on."
