Monte Rei 2023
5 Days - 5 Nights & 4 Rounds of 18 holes at the #1 course in Portugal
Each day has 2.5 hours of coaching in the morning followed by a quick lunch and 18 holes in the afternoon. Noel will play 9 holes with your group each day.
Trip 1: 22nd - 27th February
Trip 2: 1st - 6th March
Group and Individual Coaching Sessions
With Dr Noel Rousseau you will have access to the highest levels in technical, tactical and mental coaching but most importantly, the small group numbers (6 guests) mean that the coaching can be tailored to suit your goals.
The morning sessions are a combination of group and individual coaching.
Individual Swing Goals
Either at the start of the week or before you travel, you will have a goal-setting session with Noel to establish exactly what you and he agree is a sensible direction for the week. These technical goals will be worked on during individual coaching sessions throughout the week, Short game is generally a shared group session.
"I am keen that everyone achieves a small breakthrough during the week and that no time is spent aimlessly bashing range balls."
Play With the Pro
One of the most useful learning experiences is to play with a professional. The afternoons provide the opportunity to play the spectacular Monte Rei course in a totally relaxed environment and absorb all the little quirks and nuances that make up a professional’s game. You play in 3 balls so as to enable Noel to play 9 holes with each group every day.
Most importantly, the coaching format is flexible and can be adjusted on the fly to accommodate everyone's needs.
Extra Rounds of Golf
The trip package includes 4 rounds of golf but additional green fees can be arranged at the resident's rate of 145 euros. The day of arrival is a travel day with no planned coaching activity. There is also an afternoon off on Sunday. Both these days are opportunities to play even more golf. I know it seems unlikely now but when you see the course you will understand why most of the guests play as much as they possibly can while they have the chance.
Buggies and water come as part of the package and with the additional green fees.
Everyone has there own room in a shared 3-bed villa on the resort. The villas and rooms are extremely spacious and everything you would expect from such a premium resort. Breakfast is held next to the heated swimming pool just a pitching wedge distance from your villa.
There is the option for couples to share their own 1-bed private villa.
Accomodation is on a bed & breakfast basis. After a substantial breakfast, lunch is a quick sandwich at the Academy Cafe with the evening meal either taken in the Monte Rei Grill or at a restaurants in the local fishing villages.
There is no pressure to eat with the group every night if you'd rather say in and recover. It is your trip.
