This popular golf course on Portugal's Algarve formerly known as Ria Formosa is covered by pine trees, heather and wild flowers, and features four magnificent Par 5 holes.

Unfortunately the day we were booked to play this (newly renovated) course the heavens opened & we only managed to play 9 holes before we were totally washed out! From what wwe did see however they have now put the ladies tees so far forward as to be a little insulting for any reasonably good lady players! However we will... More

We played Quinta North on 24th Oct and it was a real delight. The course has undergone a major overhaul and they have done a really good job. The course presentation is good, the playing surfaces are excellent and there are no weak holes on the course. The greens ran at a reasonable pace but were not massively quick, the... More

The course has been closed for a year and they say it has had a huge amount spent on it, well it showed. A beautifully manicured course in fantastic condition with some excellent and testing golf

A challenging course with a number of picturesque holes. Recently the fairways of 3 holes have been reseeded resulting in buggies being restricted to the Buggy Path. Ladies tees are well forward by 1100m compared to the Mens Yellow tees.

We bought the 3 QDL course package which gives you a round for about... More

This is the easiest of the two courses here, but that does not mean it doesn't present a good golfing challenge for all who play it, if I had to play this and the South Course every day, I would not get bored! Definitely worth playing both if you can fit it in, in fact drop another course in the... More

Whilst I missed playing a course I'd played for years just coz I knew it I thought the changes were excellent and overall significantly improved the playing experience. A good test and a great 18.

One of 5 rounds played in the Algarve and this was the one I really wanted to play with the new layout, the course had been closed but really it should have stayed closed as the maintenance was evident on all greens and badly effected the game, not worth the green fee, avoid in August

This is a fantastic golf course. Everything seems very well laid out, clean and challenging. The buggies have GPS and all of the groundsmen, bar staff and golf staff are very helpful I play this course annually and I will love to continue playing this course for many years to come

I was looking forward to playing and was not disappointed - well manicured and laid out even though the greens are still quite young - would like to return again next year
