Match Play Moments are social, competitive tournaments on top golf courses and what makes them unique is the format.

The 2019 Iberian Match Play is a better-ball pairs, match play tournament, played off handicap, using a format called the Hopley Formula. What makes the Hopley Formula unique is that each pair plays every round, with the winner being the only pair remaining undefeated.

The aim is to win as many matches as possible and even if you lose a game, you can still potentially finish 2nd if you win your remaining matches. Played over great courses, in each round you play a full 18 holes with every result counting to your final position in the overall standings.

The format means that you are always part of the event and can play the competitive and social format of match play each day.

After each round you can relax in five-star luxury accommodation on semi-all inclusive basis and relive your Match Play Moments of the day.

Precise Resort El Rompido welcomes you to explore the cultural and natural wonders of the region or simply live the good life; whether it’s a round of golf, a sunset sail, an afternoon of spa treatments, or a glass of wine with the catch of the day. Each day at El Rompido Golf & Beach Resort brings with it exciting new possibilities.

Monte Rei Golf & Country Club


This par 72 Jack Nicklaus Signature championship golf course measuring 7,225 yards from the Tournament tees is a truly unique design with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes. The golf course features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s in a challenging and distinctive layout. This is one of the best golf courses in the whole of Europe and regularly voted #1 in Portugal!

El Rompido – North Course


Located in the upper section of the complex, this course is a real challenge for fans of modern golf. Intelligently laid out, it is a truly enjoyable course that interacts with nature: it is located right in the heart of the Marismas del Río Piedras Nature Reserve and that of Flecha de El Rompido. This course requires both length and accuracy from the golfer; however, even though a great amount of forethought is required, the course is not above any player’s level. In fact, the greens are sized to ensure that both the most adept player and even the less experienced golfer will fully enjoy their round.

El Rompido – South Course


The South Course borders the Clubhouse and is perfectly integrated into the environment to facilitate the walk round. The front and back nines differ with regards to technical level required and also with respect to the landscape. The greens on the course stand out, with some being considered among the fastest in Andalusia. Due to the mixture of tropical and winter grass, players who find the fairways lend a great sense of comfort to their game.

Match Play Moments are social, competitive tournaments on top golf courses and what makes them unique is the format.

Using the revolutionary Hopley Formula for match play, the winner is the last pair standing with a 100% record like a normal match play event.

However unlike traditional knockouts, every player plays every round against opponents with the same win/loss record, so that every match counts to the final finishing position. It is also impossible to play the same opponents twice, so making new friends will be guaranteed.

You are also guaranteed to play every hole in each round as matches are played on a holes up/down basis, so you are always playing for position. Even if you lose the first match, if you win the rest, you can still finish second and win some great prizes!

Tournaments are played in pairs, playing better ball off handicap on the best courses in Europe, with online scoring for sharing results with friends at home. All competitors will need a valid official handicap issued by a national golf union in the country where they reside. Full rules of the competition can be found at www.MatchPlayMoments.com
