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.

Good course
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.

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.

Great Golf Course
Played in June 2017 with a group of friends and the whole experience from the pre-match meal, the golf and post match drink was excellent.

Fantastic course. Well marshalled to keep play moving even when very busy. Greens a little tired in places but to be expected at this time of year. Only disappointment was the service in the bar. It really was dreadful.
