Now available – the 4 star Magnolia Hotel – owned and operated by Quinta do Lago

Quinta do Lago Golf Club features 3 of Portugal’s finest and most challenging golf holiday courses – Quinta do Lago NorthQuinta do Lago South and Quinta do Lago Laranjal.

Now re-opened after a major re-modelling by the victorious 2014 Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley.  Book now to experience this fantastic quality course.

McGinley said: “I’ve been coming to Quinta do Lago with my family for many years now and it keeps getting better and better. The new design will test golfers in many different ways and I believe this is a great addition to Europe’s leading destination.”

Quinta do Lago North golf course is the sister course of the Quinta do Lago South course and is situated in this famous hot spot for golf in the Algarve. It is a beautifully natural course full of challenges and is well worth a round for your golf holiday in Portugal.

Quinta do Lago North course has two architects. William Mitchell designed holes 1 to 5 and 15 to 18 in 1974. These holes (as with the other course) share a unique character. The terrain is typical of the area: sandy and strewn with pine trees, heather, gorse and wild flowers.

Holes 6 to 14 were designed by Joseph Lee with the collaboration of Rocky Roquemore, both from the USA, and opened in 1989.

The terrain is superb, sandy and littered with umbrella pines. In the spring, the rough is covered with a blanket of wild flowers. The greens are sown with Penn Bent Grass guaranteeing high quality putting surfaces all year round. Fairways and tees are covered with Bermuda 419 hybrid, which provides year-round, top quality swards.

Quinta North is an enjoyable challenge to golfers of all standards, the natural woodland, pine setting, the combination of undulating greens, well positioned bunkers and water hazards ensure a unique golf experience.

Walking off the 18th, the course may leave you with a sense of accomplishment or thoughts for what might have been – but always a longing to address the tee on the first hole and do it all again.
