Host Golf Course – Eastern Algarve Golf Festival

This spectacular 18 hole golf course is in the Ria Formosa Natural Park and spreads along an gently undulating piece of prime golfing land down to the Ria Formosa itself and with a stunning view of the sea.

Quinta da Ria is generally considered to be a more gentle challenge than it’s big brother Quinta da Cima – but don’t let this fool you into thinking that the Ria course is a pushover as it certainly is not!

It is a par 72, comprising two loops of 9 holes with each loop having 2 par 5’s, five par 4’s and two par 3’s. The total length is 6016 metres. Five lakes were strategically built around the course, near greens 5, 10 and 14. Hole 16, a par 5, is played between the two biggest lakes. The green of the par 3 17th also brings one the lakes into play and also has an island where local bird-life nests.

Besides the beauty the lakes bring to the course, they are also used as water reservoirs for irrigation and are nourished by a stream, in play on some holes.

The greens, smoothly undulating, are well protected by bunkers. Greens, tees and fairways are seeded with Bent Crenshaw and the rough with Poa Pretensis with Fescuas.

There is no real estate construction at Quinta da Ria – apart from the 4 star Robinson Club Quinta da Ria Hotel. More than 300 trees, such as olive and carob trees have been transplanted in order to maintain the ancient border of the course and the typical features of the regions landscape. This has given this newish course the look and feel of a course which has been established for many years.

From any point on the course, one can see both the mountains and the sea. The surrounding orange groves and vineyards contribute to make the landscape of the course even more beautiful.

What our customers say

Well designed

15th March 2019

Well designed and more interesting and enjoyable than its neighbour Quinta da Cima. A delight not to be surrounded by villas.

Quinta da Cima is too long for the average club golfer with many “samey” overlong Par 4’s.
