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 North, Quinta do Lago South and Quinta do Lago Laranjal

Quinta do Lago South Golf Course is a world famous golfing challenge set amongst a stunning mature pine forest in the Algarve golfing heartland west of Faro Airport. Home to the Portuguese Open Golf amongst many others, your golf holiday in Portugal must surely feature a round here!

Designed by William Mitchell and opened in 1974, Quinta do Lago South Course hosted the Portuguese Open Championship eight times; 1976, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2001, and many other important professional and amateur championships. The favorite of many tour players, Quinta South is a par 72 of 6,500 metres set in a natural setting surrounded by umbrella pines, lakes, wild vegetation and with the stunning Ria Formosa as the backdrop.

Each hole has generous landing areas off the tees and well-defined routing amongst the woodland pines setting. This layout encourages the average player to hit their driver, but calls for accurate driving and fairway shot precision to reach the greens in regulation.

Players will discover a variety of doglegs and strategically well located hazards obstructing the line of play for anyone who strays far from the optimum line. The front nine favour a draw, whilst the back nine a fade from the tee. Holes 8, 15 and 18 are the most testing for the scratch player whilst holes 3, 12 and 17 offer the best possibilities to see more birdie putts.

Quinta do Lago Golf Courses are an enjoyable golf experience you’ll remember and wish to repeat and the 19th may offer the perfect respite to reflect on the challenge.
