“Golf around the nature reserve.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We played San Lorenzo four times on our recent visit to the Algarve and enjoyed it immensely. It is a very interesting layout with a number of challenging holes that offer options for both the higher and lower handicapper. The views of the Ocean and the Ria Formosa estuary open up after the fifth hole when you play alongside water until the ninth. The 8th, 17th and 18th holes border a nature reserve and bird sanctuary and offer wonderful wildlife plus some scary carries!
The greens were in superb, slick condition and the bunkers had consistent quality sand. The fairways were rather patchy though with varying depths of grass and many small tufts.
The staff in the pro shop and clubhouse were friendly and helpful.
Overall we had an excellent and enjoyable time playing here.

“Its all about the game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

I have read reviews that talk about the showers and the small clubhouse, but frankly I don't care. San Lorenzo is a wonderful course. A course a high handicapper can enjoy and not spend too long looking for balls and one that proves a worthy challenge to lower handicap players. Any trip to the Algarve is made all the better for playing here

“Excellent - truly breathtaking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

More than lived up to the expectations although the 'driving range' leaves a lot to be desired! The holes both down and arround the lagoon are fantastic and the greens in great condition and very fast. It was busy but not too many delays. We will be back!
