Golf In Algarve: Quinta do Lago South Course Review

Golf tourists, we feel, wish to play only in the best golf courses around the world. That’s what prompts them to spend a lot of time researching the finest that their holiday destination has to offer. We know you’re just like any other golf tourist, looking for the best. We want to help you seek out the best courses. If you’re planning to visit Algarve – the southern region of Portugal, then surely, you’ll have to add the Quinta do Lago (South) to your list of ‘Must Play Courses.’ You don’t have to blindly follow what we’ve to say; read the review of the course and then make a decision.

Quinta do Lago (South) Review

The Loule in the Costa de Algarve region houses the very popular Quinta do Lago (South). Tourists planning to visit Algarve don’t have to think twice. By visiting this region they get to stay at one of the most luxurious accommodation and play at the Quinta do Lago South that has, till date, hosted many golf championship tournaments.

Since 1974 – the year the course was first opened, till date the golf course has hosted the prestigious Portuguese Championship Golf Tournament for more than 8 times. Other amateur and professional tournaments have also been held on this course.

The American golf course designer, William Mitchell has laid the course beautifully without damaging the natural terrain and the local flora. The course is a little over 7000 yards, slightly bigger than the North course, with a few par-5 holes. Surely, hard hitters who are good at driving off the tee would enjoy playing a few rounds in this course. Already set in a picturesque surrounding, not very far from the Rio Formosa Nature Reserve, the designer has made the course, even more beautiful by planting pine trees on either side of the fairways. The strategically placed sand traps and water hazards add beauty to the course and also make it more challenging to the golfers.

Accuracy is the key to survive and succeed in this course. The statistical record maintained by the course shows that even low handicappers have a tough time playing in the eighth, fifteenth, and the eighteenth hole of course. As we already mentioned, powerful drives and accurate strokes are two vital skills the golfers must possess to reach GIR (Greens in Regulation). This is the course to visit to have the most enjoyable golfing experience in the Algarve.
