Definitely Worth It
What a great course, the set up at Quinta is first class. We’ve played Quinta North a few times, always thoroughly enjoyable, although pace of play can be slow, and the course Marshall rarely seems to take action.

Very good condition although too much walking between greens and tees. Buggies at €55 too expensive.

A great course to play. As usual at this time of the year it was busy. The first few holes were really slow but after the 4th the groups spread out and we got round in just over 4 hours which for this course in pretty good. The course was in great condition with some challenging holes.

Schöne Platz Architektur, harte Fairway's, Greens gut bis sehr gut, Restaurant ab 17.00h giebt es kein Food mehr !

Finde das teure Geld nicht unbedingt gerechtfertigt !

Played here many times and the course was in excellent condition as always.

Nice Course But QDL South Better
Good course but definitely not as good a layout as QDL South. Par 3s are good.

Course was in excellent condition but some of the holes are too similar.

Buggy’s well equipped and pace of play acceptable.

5 stars for all Quinta courses. Not as tough as the south but still great

Very much enjoyed or afternoon on north course until we got to the 16th when we were asked to return to the clubhouse. We had started our four ball at 16.00 and we were asked to leave at 20.00 because the sprinkler system had been activated. Nobody told us this would be the case, if we’d known we would have booked an earlier time. We even let a two ball through so they could enjoy their round, so that delayed us by at least 10 minutes. Just wish someone had told us about the finish because it spoiled our round. Calling to see them tomorrow to see if they can offer us a discount on a future round.

Paul the golf Marshall ruined our experience
We played over the weekend we flew in from UK and wanted to have nice relaxed day of golf, there is golf marshal named Paul who was horrible really bad manners and threatened to kick us off the course if we play to slow the way he talked down was ridiculous, he got into a yelling match with another person laying as well. Management needs to talk to him and educated him on how to talk to customers

QDL North May 2023
Superb course. Layout was interesting and challenging playing from the back (black) tees. I’ll be back to play it again 🤞. Only downside was the distance between some of the greens and tees, but not an issue if you hire a buggy.

Pace of play was very slow. 3 flights were waiting on the 2nd hole. Arrived in dark on 18th hole. Course manintenance was excellent. However, with that green fee you can expect that marshalls take care of the game.

5 star golf
Top course. Perfectly kept fairways and greens, and a test of golf. Expensive, but worth it.

Start early and you'll have an enjoyable round. All the QdL courses are well maintained. The greens were faster than the South course, which was a surprise.

Nice to play for everyone
here you can play an enjoable round (very good for HCI 15 until 28)

Very nice course. Pity about having to cross so many roads though whilst travelling from green to tee.

Again staff were first class

Claire from Ireland
on Wed, 19th Oct 2022
Excellent course and staff, just slow because a group of 16 ahead of us were late which pushed our time out 30 minutes later starting but it caused it to be very slow 5 hours 20 , but it is fabulous, will definitely be back.

Worth Playing
Lovely course, great condition and staff very friendly.

North Course Gem
Played Quinta North twice on a recent visit. Fantastic Golf Course. Tough challenge from the Black Tees but very enjoyable from the Yellows! Course in superb condition. Greens running about 12 on the stint, Rough penal but fair. Thoroughly enjoyed both rounds in great company

Wonderful - Enjoyed every hole
What a super golf course in tip top condition. Hard to see another hole from the one your playing and every hole a special one.

Highly recommended

Great course
Not quite as good as the south imo but still decent. Fairways were slightly overwatered, easy to catch it heavy. (Might have been the time I played) Some of the greens are a bit crazy golf like but makes you think a bit.
Neil from United Kingdom
on Thu, 12th May 2022
Great course in great condition, buggy essential.
David from Ireland
on Mon, 9th May 2022
Very good layout

Fairways heavy in places (mud ball) e.g. 18th fairway

Slow play on this date (two ball and three ball ahead of us, ? fourball holding up in front of these)

? buggies being diverted away from greens at too great a distance

Overall very good course to play

Review of Quinta North
Course in excellent condition. The recent investment in the course has clearly been worthwhile and the greens were great to putt on

2nd time at Quinta North, again in fantastic condition, it’s a real treat to play it. Tough test, greens are pure and super fast, so there’s never really a gimme! My favourite course played this year.

Disapointing compared to vale do lobo
No grass on the fairways and around some greens rather disapointing

Greens fast and ok

Top course - don't miss it!
Excellent course, wonderfully embedded in woods of pines. Sometines quite tricky to play, ups and downs, many bunkers 😅😅😅

North course review
Played in early September and the course was playable but looked a bit tired in places with quite a lot of divots on the fairways playing area. Otherwise very enjoyable
Mark from United Kingdom

Generally in good nick and some really good holes to be enjoyed. Course maintenance on around 6 of the holes though spoiled it somewhat - greens were excellent though

Great course and love playing it. Quinta South is my favourite but both courses are superb and fair to the average duffer.

4.5 stars
This was the first year since the redoing of the course where we played well. The greens being slightly slower, and no longer the slithery surfaces which made our approaches so difficult, cut strokes from our scores - making it more fun. This doesn't mean that the course is no longer challenging! We just wish we had had time to play it a few more times during this visit.

The best of the bunch
Without doubt the best course in the Quinta / Villamoura area , this is a serious challenge with greens that are fast and furious with undulations that can send a slightly misread putt careering of the green to your amazement , supreme condition and shaped holes giving the faded and drawer challenges , it has the full Monty of all you need in a course , having played it 30 years ago and then again now , it has matured wonderfully and is a must play on any trip , would play it again in a flash and definitely do better on those greens !!

First time i played one of the quinta do lago courses and was not disappointed. Great condition, good blend of challenging and risk reward holes. Fairways excellent, greens were very good, especially for this time of year and after a lot of rain. Bunkers were quality, nice shapes and sizes and the clubhouse and setting were top class. Not cheap, but definitely worth it.

Magnificent course. The course is very well maintained, clean and the greens are in good condition! I loved playing the Old Course. I would even say that I am interested in becoming a member of the Club.

Quinta North
Very well kept and presented but the gaps between holes are tedious and the course loses identity ... more like 18 great holes loosely connected.
on Thu, 5th Dec 2019
Great course but club house being renovated which diminished the impact of the experience. Our 3 ball was added to with a 1 which was ok but lessoned our banter. Overall very good.

My Favourite
This is my favourite gold course. It is testing, enjoyable and fun. Lots of variety and bunkers to trap you if you have a lapse in concentration

Best course in Algarve.
I played 6 Algarve courses and this was the best. Perfectly maintained, green, challenging, and a great overall experience. It is the most expensive I think.
Douglas from United Kingdom

Very good
Still a very good course and in good condition for time of year
Michael from Portugal

Some other things
The course is excellent. On the downside, no map of the course is on the score card or on the tee box. There are few directional signs on the course . There is also very few drop kerbs to aid pull trolleys. Lastly I didn’t like the long pull up after the 18th hole
on Tue, 21st May 2019
WOW!It starts with one of the best opening holes in Algarve. Then it just keeps impressing me. Mint condition and very friendly staff! Well be back !!

as before when we have played here it is first class, condition of the course was superb,, greens were a bit slower than last year but it was a superb course to look at and play
Agnes from Portugal

Great course, very good shape but quite noisy with all the roads around
on Sun, 16th Sep 2018
Course was amazing but service at club house was not good with only one member of staff serving, kept waiting for drinks and would get agitated when approached, needed another staff member to serve, thank you

North Course Experience.
Most enjoyable return visit after many years to North Course. Staff were most helpful and efficient. Clubs up to date, although I would have preferred senior shafts.

Course in great condition, with inviting drives and challenging greens,

Lovely Golf course
Very good and enjoyable course, need to careful where you are going . If you hit the ball far , some holes are blind. This course is good for iron play and to keep on fairways.

Will be back really enjoyed it .

Hilly but beautiful
What a beautiful start to a week of golf in Algarve. The North course at Quinta do Lago is a tricky course with fast greens, but none the less a course I'd definitely love to play again.

The whole setup on all three courses at Quinta do Lago is second to none, and I'll recommend to everyone who's going to Algarve to play golf, to try all three courses.

Tree lined course with long walks between some holes. Recommend you use buggies.

Never played before, I've played the South.

Tough challenge and condition of the green were not great. But a great layout.

Quinta North my birthday treat
Loved the course it's over 10 years since I last played. It was in great condition. A lot of road crossing is the only down side

Quinta north
Played this a few years ago and now has been renovated. Like this better than the south course and was in very good nick.

North Course
Average course layout

Over hyped. Prefer the South course

Greens very good

General experience vs elsewhere was poor

David from United Kingdom

Quinta North
Course was very wet caused by adverse weather conditions with many fairways saturated with surface water, however no offer was made for any compensating reduction in green fees or allowance for future bookings.
Howard from United Kingdom
on Wed, 26th Oct 2016
Pretty good
It is a good course , why the fairways were so wet I don't know
Peter from United States
on Mon, 17th Oct 2016
Excellent course in great condition. Bit of an odd layout - probably tough to walk given some of the distances between tee boxes and greens (although people do).
on Mon, 26th Sep 2016
Nearly as good as the South course but not quite.
Craig from United Kingdom
on Mon, 13th Jun 2016
Superb course, great condition and had a fantastic day, only downside was not being able to pay for buggies in advance, also 50 euros for a buggie is very pricey
