Quinta do Lago Championship golf course offering:
To play golf at Quinta do Lago is a joy for visitors and maybe more a way of life for those who decide to become members of this exclusive community.
In keeping with its heritage, Golf at Quinta do Lago enjoys the full spectrum of nature’s bounty. Each course has been designed in harmony with its environment and successfully crafted to take their position among the Top 25 rated golf courses in all of Europe. It has played host to several Portuguese Opens and continues to be a venue of choice for national and international competitions.
Each course is an experience of Augusta type fare and generous, lush fairways are intermittently decorated with clusters of pine, heather, broom and wild flowers and the carefully tended greens, considered among the best in Portugal are fast, true and sometimes humbling.
Natural water features are sprinkled throughout and bunkers break the landscape almost as a constant reminder, to golfers of all experience and ability, of the great challenge that lies ahead.
All courses enjoy first class driving ranges, a golf academy, putting greens, pro-shops and clubhouses with large and informal terraces – the perfect setting to relax with friends and family, to toast the victor or, console the vanquished.
The three courses at Quinta do Lago offer different challenges.
The terrain of the South and North course is comprised of firm, sandy Algarvean soil, that gives a helpful impetus off the tee. An array of features, including water, bunker and an undulating landscape makes the approach to each green memorable - rewarding the deft touch or the sleight of hand.
The ample greens are of Creeping Bent grass, the fairways Bermuda and the ever changing landscape and layout means no two shots are the same while the next hole is as individual, as the previous.
Complimenting Quinta do Lago’s existing resources and completing its offering is Laranjal.
Originally an orange grove, Laranjal has been nurtured by time, sculpted by nature and expertly designed to provide a world class golfing experience. With 6,500 metres of manicured terrain, it is a par 72, comprising five par 5s, eight par 4s and five par 3s
Vale do Lobo Championship golf course offering: Based on original concepts by the legendary Sir Henry Cotton and re-developed by the respected American golf architect Rocky Roquemore, the Vale do Lobo courses have twice been host to the Portuguese Open. Both take players through umbrella pine and fig tree-lined fairways to the Atlantic – the Royal playing dramatically along the cliff’s edge, while the Ocean sweeps daintily down to the beach. This combination of links and parkland golf provides an enjoyable game for golfers of all standards.
Vilamoura´s 5 Championship Golf Courses (Victoria, Old Course, Millennium, Laguna & Pinhal) are only a 20 minute drive.
Vilamoura Family Pitch & Putt mini 18 hole golf course fun for all the family.
