Quinta do Lago is one of the Algarve’s largest golf destinations and its courses are rated among Europe’s top 25. The resort has hosted eight Portuguese Opens and continues to be the venue for national and international tournaments.
Golf at Quinta do Lago is an experience of Augusta type fare and generous, lush fairways are intermittently decorated with clusters of pine, heather, broom and wild flowers and the carefully tended greens, considered among the best in Portugal are fast, true and sometimes humbling.
All courses enjoy first class driving ranges, a golf academy, putting greens, pro-shops and clubhouses with large and informal terraces – the perfect setting to relax with friends and family, to toast the victor or, console the vanquished.
The three courses at Quinta do Lago offer different challenges.
The terrain of the South and North course is comprised of firm, sandy Algarvean soil, that gives a helpful impetus off the tee. An array of features, including water, bunker and an undulating landscape makes the approach to each green memorable - rewarding the deft touch or the sleight of hand.
The ample greens are of Creeping Bent grass, the fairways Bermuda and the ever changing landscape and layout means no two shots are the same while the next hole is as individual, as the previous.
Complimenting Quinta do Lago’s existing resources and completing its offering is Laranjal.
Originally an orange grove, Laranjal has been nurtured by time, sculpted by nature and expertly designed to provide a world class golfing experience. With 6,500 metres of manicured terrain, it is a par 72, comprising five par 5s, eight par 4s and five par 3s and yet adequate concession
Quinta North is an enjoyable challenge to golfers of all standards, the natural woodland, pine setting, the combination of undulating greens, well positioned bunkers and water hazards ensure a unique golf experience.
Walking off the 18th, the course may leave you with a sense of accomplishment or thoughts for what might have been - but always a longing to address the tee on the first green and do it all again.
Each hole has generous landing areas off the tees and well-defined routing amongst the woodland pines setting. This layout encourages the average player to hit their drivers, but calls for accurate driving and fairway shot precision to reach the greens in regulation. The players will discover a good variety of doglegs and strategically well located hazards obstructing the line of play for anyone who strays far from the optimum line. The front nine favour a draw, whilst the back nine a fade from the tee. Holes 8, 15 and 18 are the most testing for the scratch player whilst holes 3, 12 and 17 offer the best possibilities to see more birdies putts.

It will be a surprise for a lot of people& it provokes a series of emotions from the first hole to the last. It is about the game and the strategy as well as the aesthetics. Nobody will be indifferent to it, Arch. Santana da Silva.
