One of the most beautiful and well known resorts in the Algarve, Quinta do Lago dovetails luxury real estate and accommodation, with three first-class golf courses. The North Course, South Course and Laranjal Course are all laid out in 2,000 acres of stunning gardens, umbrella pine trees, and perfectly rolling greens. These are some of the best conditioned courses you’ll find in the Algarve, particularly the North Course which has recently been given a €9m refurbishment.
The golf in Faro is second to none, with some of the finest Algarve golf courses close by. Set in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, the stunning San Lorenzo is one Europe’s best layouts and is a must-play. But don’t forget the three superb courses at nearby Quinta do Lago and the renowned Royal Course at Vale de Lobo, with its iconic 16th hole across the cliffs. Playing any of these will guarantee you an Algarve golf break to remember.
For many, Faro is simply the location of the airport where you arrive to begin your Algarve golf holiday. That would be to do it a disservice though, as it is a great base for a Portugal golf break in its own right, with the added advantage of less transfer time. Base yourself at the magnificent Dona Filipa, or try the best-selling venues of Formosa Park or Monte da Quinta Suites. Any one of these Faro golf resorts will give you a European golf holiday to remember.
