Quinta da Ria Golf Course Tips

Hole 1 (Par 5)
460 414 465 370
This is an attractive first hole with trees running left from the tee. The first stroke should be aimed towards the large bunker right of the centre and leaving a good position to play second shot which is a pitch to green.

Hole 2 (Par 3)
139 120 139 120
Fairly easy short hole with bunkers located at the front, left and rear. Careful iron selection is essential.

Hole 3 (Par 4)
338 325 342 312
Trees either side of the hole with a generous strategic bunker slightly right of fairway in an area ideal to land to play the next shot. The green is well protected by a wasteland bunker short left of the green and a further bunker on the right.

Hole 4 (Par 4)
340 325 340 315
Fourth hole has trees lining both sides of the fairway. The tee drive needs to be towards the right of centre which allows a view of the green over a slight rise. The green is protected by a bunker on the left and another one at its rear.

Hole 5 (Par 3)
160 120 175 88
A tricky hole with a protective lake to cross and a large tree centre right of the green. A long iron is required.

Hole 6 (Par 5)
442 420 442 337
The sixth hole is a sweeping dog-leg right after a drive to land between two bunkers. The second shot should be aimed at the marker post to give easier access for the approach stroke.

Hole 7 (Par 4)
343 320 360 250
A long hole uphill fairway to an elevated well bunkered green. Initial tee drive over water aiming well in the centre of fairway and leaving quite a long carrying shot to the green which is surrounded in front with bunkers.

Hole 8 (Par 4)
350 340 358 330
The view from the tee is straightforward requiring a drive between with trees either side of the fairway. The second shot is to a green guarded with a bunker at the rear.

Hole 9 (Par 4)
340 330 344 232
The ninth hole has also trees lining both sides of the fairway. The second stroke is straight towards the clubhouse using a medium iron to a green with Out of Bounds at the rear.

Hole 10 (Par 4)
380 342 422 335
This tenth hole is the hardest on the course (Stroke Index 1). All down the left is out of bounds and the drive needs to be either short of large bunker in the centre of fairway, or to the right leaving you a choice of going for the green with the next stroke. This will be over a large lake on the right of the fairway all the way to the green. Alternatively, the second shot can be over the very large tree known as The Love Tree in the middle of the fairway towards the left side of the green and then chip in.

Hole 11 (Par 5)
470 385 482 385
A hole which requires a drive to land between bunkers. The second shot will be over the rise towards the green and then a pitch to a very well guarded green by bunkers. The left side of the whole hole is Out of Bounds.

Hole 12 (Par 4)
270 260 278 260
A short hole for a par 4 keeping the drive to the right of fairway and then with a short second shot to the green. Whilst playing this hole look to your left to view the stunning sight of the coastline from Vila Real de Santo Antonio towards Cabanas and Tavira. Remember to take your camera to capture the essence of the Algarve in all its majesty.

Hole 13 (Par 3)
178 165 188 123
The long par 3 hole has a huge bunker left of the green and two more bunkers on right side. This shot requires accuracy and depending on the wind usually needs to be played with a wood. A good challenge!

Hole 14 (Par 4)
321 250 321 250
This hole is a true par 4 dogleg. Tee drive is a short wood or medium iron to the middle of fairway and then the second shot over a lake to the green ringed to the right an rear with a series of small bunkers.

Hole 15 (Par 4)
356 325 356 325
Another straightforward hole with Out of Bounds on the left. The tee drive should be right of left of the fairway bunker. The second shot is straightforward to green with bunkers left and right.

Hole 16 (Par 5)
450 428 453 417
The sixteenth hole has Out of Bounds on the left and water hazard to the right. The ideal shot from the tee is to aim for the left-hand bunker. The second stroke should avoid the water now on both sides and keeping towards the right side of the fairway. The approach shot to the green is over the left water hazard with bunkers to its rear and to the right.

Hole 17 (Par 3)
150 113 161 105
Depending on the wind, this hole requires a long iron to medium iron to reach the green keeping away from the lake on the right. An ideal approach shot is to come in from the left using the landing area just inside the bunker left of the green.

Hole 18 (Par 4)
385 350 390 335
The eighteenth hole acts as a good finishing hole. The drive from the tee should be to the right side of the fairway making sure you do not reach the left bunker with a tree in the middle. It is a reasonably long second stroke to carry the bunker in front of the green so use the bail out area either short left or the bunker left.
