Some very challenging holes Some long walks Green to tee. We played off the yellow tees . it must be particularly daunting playing off the whites. the new bunkers add a difficulty which is new compared with the course before the re~ design. I think the course is now a lot easier for the Ladies and some of the par... More

Was lucky to play the old layout 3 years ago, and thought although a bit tired, was a great layout. New layout will blow your socks off!!!! The amount of work, and quality of it is to be applauded, new tees, new bunkers, new lakes.... it goes on, greens complexes reworked, shaped and surfaces, which are excellent. Cannot be faulted,...

Course has been redesigned since we last played. Putting surfaces were brilliant and very fast, though occasionally unplayable if out of position.

SO much hype after the lengthy closed period - but SO much disappointment upon playing it. The course is well kept BUT almost every hole is straight, with wide fairways and little of interest to recommend any of them. This is a course for genuine 'holiday only' golfers who are happy to hack along - it's an expensive green fee... More

Just returned from our annual fourball to Portugal. We played Quinta North, Quinta South and Laranjal each twice. I could not fault the layout and quality of all three courses but felt the North had come in for some criticism. We found it in immaculate condition with generous fairways (it is a resort course after all) but with big rolling... More

Having played the old north course on numerous occasions I found the new layout alright but not an improvement,with the greens almost like glass if you are not in the right spot, a four putt is not uncommon,after watching a seniors pro game scores in the high nineties and one hundred plus, I yust think the greens are a joke.

The course was in fantastic condition but no longer the challenge of the original lay out. Open fairways with little thought required from the tee.

Been playing this course for 25 years ... last year they closed it and gave it a major make over. The make over has made the course easier.. maybe that was the plan ... so you could get even more players through... The first dog leg is smoothed out and the annoying trees on the left removed. The second, a... More
