Designed by WILLIAM MITCHELL from the USA and opened in 1974, Quinta do Lago South Course hosted the “Portuguese Open Championship” eight times; 1976, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2001, and many other important professional and amateur championships. The favorite of many tour players, Quinta South is a par 72 with 6,500 metres set in a natural setting surrounded by umbrella pines, lakes, wild vegetation and with the stunning Ria Formosa in the backdrop…

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.

No thanks

We played today, but were not really happy. First we had to pay 50€ for a cart with a torn sit cushion, then three guys were standing around and didn’t load our bags to the cart. Then we had to pay 7 € for a basket of driving range balls, I would rather recommend to play at Monte Rey where staff is much more friendly and cart is included.
That’s not the quality related to the high prices what a golfer would expect!

A good resort course

The course has always been a good test of golf and generally very well maintained. Most fairways wind between the pine trees but they are fairly generous. The greens are large so 2 putts cannot be guaranteed. Over the years the course and surrounds have been tidied up and it all looks good and plays well. Having said all that, beware of the 8th as even the best drive for most golfers will still result in playing your next from either the rough or from under some trees - it is unfair and a poor design.

A word of warning, you may expect a very slow round if playing at certain times.

Top but expensive

Played mid-February 2019; not too many players on the way. Place in very good condition. Very interesting and fast greens. All people very friendly.
