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.

Great Course

Would be happy if this was where I played all my golf. I have played it every year for the past 25 years, and look forward to it every time. Fairways not always in the bets condition, but the greens are a good speed and true, and all the holes are different.

Best Course In The Area

Given the extreme wet weather during December 2019 the course was the only one open in the area with playable tee boxes and greens in fact most courses in the area was closed which is a testament to the green staff at Farleigh

An enjoyable round

Nice course to play with great views on some of the holes. Was a busy day at the course, however pace was good and staff friendly.

The best of the Quinta do Lago courses

Great course and in good condition. Probably better than the North course. Not quite as busy as some of the local courses.

Really liked this one

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.

Heavenly place

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!

Great opening Villamoura course

Played South on the first day of a three day tour and this course was excellent - touch challenging holes with plenty of bunkers and narrow drives.
