Overlooking the spectacular scenery of the Ria Formosa National Park, the Quinta do Lago South Course is known as the “jewel in the crown” of the Quinta do Lago luxury resort.
Designed by William Mitchell in 1974, the course has played host to no fewer than eight Portuguese Open Championship tournaments, including Colin Montgomerie’s seminal 1989 victory. Widely regarded as one of the foremost courses in Portugal and beyond, the Quinta do Lago South Course remains to this day one of the flagship European Tour Courses.
Voted Best Golf Course at the Portuguese 2011 Travel Awards, Laranjal opened in 2009 as the newest course in Quinta do Lago.
Originally an orange grove, this beautiful par 72 championship course is situated in the Ludo valley, just 2km east of the resort. Boasting some spectacular fairways and well-defined greens, Laranjal is renowned for its five beautiful lakes and its abundance of umbrella pines, cork and orange trees.
