This is the one that golfers want to play most largely in part to the course hosting the European Tour on eight occasions. The South Course is nestled perfectly in the Ria Formosa nature reserve, providing golfers with a great golfing experience, with beautiful views and picturesque settings.
A number of holes will test you on this course, with the 8th, 10th, and 18th holes certainly deserving of a mention, proving themselves as challenging par 4 holes for even the lowest handicapped players. But the two holes that prove most testing are the 15th and 17th. The 15th is the North Course’s signature hole, the 218-yard par 3 that requires a lengthy tee shot to carry over a lake onto a well-guarded green surrounded by pine trees.
The 17th hole is a par 5 that proves to be worth the wait, as a spectacular view with numerous pine trees lining the hole, ensures a fine finish. An accurate tee shot is vital around the dogleg to avoid the rough, possibly setting up an approach shot to the green. There is no room for error on this hole as anything left or right will most definitely leave you in some trouble. It is not surprising that the South course at Quinta do Lago is ranked as one of the best courses in Portugal.
€9 million was invested on the North Course in 2014, implementing new innovative technology to ensure that the course was more environmentally friendly and even more aesthetically pleasing. Golfers of all abilities will not only be able to enjoy the challenge of the course but enjoy the visual aspects that the North Course is known for, with wonderful trees, white sanded bunkers, and beautiful water hazards featuring throughout.
Totalling at 6,529 yards from the Yellows, it is not a particularly long course. Despite this, in terms of quality, you are spoilt for choice. It was named ‘The Best New Golf Course in Europe’ at the World Golf Awards in 2014, and it is evident why.
The land that this course is built on used to be an orange grove and the transformation is nothing short of staggering. Sitting just 2km from the resort in the Ludo Valley, pine and orange trees play a role in the beauty of this course. Voted the best course in Portugal in 2011 this is a challenging track with well-defended greens.
The set-up of this course is unique with five par-5s, eight par-4s, and five par-3s. Given that this is a standalone course away from the main resort, the Laranjal has its own clubhouse and practice facilities. These amenities are exactly what you would expect from Quinta do Lago and are of the highest quality. The 11th hole on the course is probably the signature hole, although choosing a highlight is difficult here. A 180 yard par-3 with water to the right of the hole as well as the famous ‘beach bunker’ making that tee shot a little tenser. The green is lightning fast and leaving the ball below the hole is a must to give yourself a chance at a single putt.
