Golf courses at Quinta do Lago Golf
The par-72 Laranjal Golf Course plays 7064 yards and is a fantastic track all year round, with exceptional greens kept in excellent condition. It has previously been voted the best golf course in Portugal, and it is not hard to see why. Originally an orange grove, the Quinta do Lago Laranjal Course offers 18-holes of championship golf in an outstanding setting. The golf course complements the North and South courses beautifully and the three can combine to make an inspirational golf break.
The North Course is aimed at offering a great challenge and enjoyable experience for golfers of all standards. The sandy terrain is a joy to play on, and the mixture of woodland, umbrella pine trees, tricky strategically placed bunkers and water hazards keep players on their toes throughout the round. At 6700 yards, the Quinta do Lago North Course tests your ability to drive the ball, as well as your finesse around the greens, making this an ideal addition to any golf break.
The Quinta do Lago South Course measures in longer than the North Course at a touch over 7000 yards from the back, giving the big hitters of the ball an advantage on the par-5s. The fairways are dotted with pine trees, requiring accurate drives to stay on track, and the addition of lakes, local flora and the beautiful backdrop of the Ria Formosa make this a truly spectacular round of golf.
