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

After all the talk of the renovations that took place in 2014, with €9 million being spent, I was really expecting something sensational. Yes, there have been changes in the greens, but having played it previously I was very under-whelmed. The green fees are high and I believe there are better options in the Algarve.

As my comments about the south included The North Course always a joy to play the superb standards set are a credit to management and staff alike the green keepers deserve a real pat on the back

Just back from a trip to the Algarve after pledging our loyalties this year to all three Quinta courses. I had played North and L'arranjal before but was looking forward to sampling the delights of South (eight times Portuguese Open venue) for the first time. The Quinta set up is a 20 minute journey from Vilamoura and is neighboured by... More

My wife and I went to the Algarve this May, to play all the courses in Quinta do Lago and Vale da Lobo. Never done it before and we had heard so much about the area and the courses. First of all the weather was awful raining every day, so don’t relay on May to be sunny. It really was... More

We have now played all the QDL courses. South and Laranjal are excellent. Not so impressed with North. Massive walks from green to the next tee over roads and through housing states is a big put off. The tees were in poor state. The course itself was ok but not on the list to return to in future years.

This course has got great reviews but it seems to me that many of the media reviewers haven't actually played the course. We were looking forward to playing it but it did not live up to our expectations. While the greens are of excellent quality, they are probably too tricky for the average handicap golfer. The holes are very varied... More
