The North Course, the Quinta do Lago's new number one, has been redeveloped...

The North Course, the Quinta do Lago's new number one, has been redeveloped with the emphasis firmly on precision and strategy and it's predicted to become one of the new stars of European golf. 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.

Golf Course

Played there on the 13th November - brilliant days golf. Since it has been revamped - it is much better.

For those who played before it was redeveloped you will notice a few changes. Overall it was in great condition.Early tee time recomended if you dont want to end up behind the "Holiday Golf" hackers.

Quinta Do Lago North was a first time for all of us.The views and property that surround the course are stunning.The course is very exciting and challenging and it is the greens that will make or break your score.They are extremely quick,get your self out of position and your score will rack up.Great buggies with GPS fitted to the pins...

Ive played most of the top courses in the Algarve and Lisbon regions and this is up there with the best of them. On this trip we played the North, South and Laranjal courses, all of which are excellent but the North was the most impressive. Fairways are in fantastic condition with bunkers to catch any errant tee shots.... Expect... More

This is an expensive golf course. It has been re modelled. The price was increased. We paid 99 Euros which was a discounted price. Although we had a booked tee time we went off late. On the third hole there were 4 groups of four playing. It took us 1 hour to play the first three holes. If you are... More

Probably the better of the the two courses. It is a good test of golf and the surrounding villas are an eye opener. How the few live left me with a nasty taste in the mouth. The course is challening and some of the hikes between holes is somewhat of a hike. You need a buggy! I won't be back... More

Absolutely beautiful course, and in wonderful condition. Must be very well looked after, in much better condition than the neighbouring courses. All holes make you work, but it never feels unfair. Greens are perfect and very fast. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great course in superb condition. Nice views, great service. Buggies with GPS, very playable for middle handicaps (about 20).

Played the new North early in the month. Frankly apart from a couple of holes it was disappointing . Criss crossing the road several times you would need a GPS to follow the course. little scenery of note and compared to the South or Laranjal in my mind a poor third!

Having seen the redevelopment of this course and we drove past a couple of years back, it was great to come and play it. I can't say how it compares to what it was but I will say it is now a really lovely place for a round of breathtakingly lovely golf - shame my game didn't do it justice... More
