What the club says: Designed by William Mitchell from the USA and opened in 1974, the Quinta do Lago South course was used eight times for the “Portuguese Open Championship” in 1976, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2001. It has also hosted many large professional and amateur championships.
The favourite of many tour players, this course offers the possibility to hit the greens in regulation in several ways. However, each hole has one easy route and the player who sees this, and has the skill to follow the designer's intention, and produce sub-par figures. An anti-clockwise loop, it favours the draw shot.
This course favours the long hitter, but requires the player to pick a particular route to score well. Although both anti-clockwise loops, the first nine favours a draw, while the second favours a fade from the tee. Holes 3, 15 and 17 features lakes, which must be negotiated.
Most Helpful Review
Great course, played it twice. I prefer Quinta Do Lago to the slightly more prestigious Vale de Lobo courses after playing both.... The buggies are better and the touchscreen gps course guide/scorecard is valuable, especially if you don't know the course. The staff were also more welcoming.

Golf Course Reviews for Quinta do Lago South
Another good course at Quinta, we always enjoy playing the South. It's a tough test and the greens and fairways are always in great nick.
Played North, Laranjal and South and South was my favourite. There was a nice flow to it, lovely ending holes with water around. Some incredible villas around. A bit of out of season GUR around but again tees, fairways and greens were immaculate. Teed off first in morning at 7:40 and round in four hours no problem.
(Round played: Feb 2018 - Score: 90 Handicap: )
Just immaculate. Pristine fairways, true super fast greens.
A beast of a layout: be prepared for a monster challenge.
Of the 260 courses I have now played, this is in the top 10.
I WILL play here once more sometime as the course beat me up and spat ne back out again!
(Round played: Dec 2017 - Score: 99 Handicap: 9)
(Round played: Nov 2017 - Score: 85 Handicap: 10.2)
Probably the best course I have played .
Brilliant layout, extremely tough greeens with "augusta" style undulations.
(Round played: Nov 2017 - Score: 101 Handicap: 15)
