In the 1970s when golfing first took off in the Algarve, Quinta do Lago was preceded only by older courses at Vilamoura, Vale de Lobo and Penina. It has three nine-hole loops, with B+C considered the best 18. Designed by William Mitchell in a hilly and treed terrain, the three loops served as incentive for widespread and ongoing property development. Quinta do Lago was venue to the Portuguese Open in 1976. It became the tournament’s home during the 1980s, with the last tournament played in 2001. It has an open American style, sufficiently long for professionals, but manageable for less expert golfers. The rolling landscape and Mediterranean-style villas built over the years contribute to its appeal. The course is usually very well maintained, but the clubhouse and surroundings are less so, reflecting the rustic style of early Algarve. But if you enjoy golfing and visit the area, it’s a must-do.

A good course with some memorable features and challenging shots into and over valleys and water. The length can be stretched to make it more challenging than the standard touristy layout. Always busy but again as with North and Laranjal, the facilities are without a doubt good, but the pricing is over-inflated throughout.

I was first out on a Saturday morning on the South Course and I had a blast! The course is a little garden extremely well maintained (considering the number of rounds played) and very enjoyable for every type of golfers... The back 9 is more scenic than the front as you will play around the famous lake of Quinta do Lago. While it was playing way easier, Quinta has a similar feel as Isleworth in Florida with its nice views over lakes, big white bunkers and very pretty houses, which should not be in play ;) All in all, I really enjoyed my experience on the South course at Quinta do Lago and could only recommend it if you are in the Algarve. I have yet to play other courses in the Algarve, but QdL is (according to credible sources) easily in the top5 in the Algarve with likes of Palmares, Monte Rei, San Lorenzo and the Old at Vilamoura. I can't wait to come back to Quinta for the All Square Nations Cup in February 2018.
