Quinta do Lago South Reviews

Championship Feel
The south course at Quinta definitely has a championship feel about it, one where you can open the shoulders and let fly. Always in top condition and yes the green fee is steep but when packaged together with Laranjal & North it works out ok and even cheaper when staying at the Magnolia Hotel( low & mid season) Holes 14/15/16/17 have some of the best tee box views that I have played , one to tick off the play list definitely and it’s also very walkable with an electric trolley

Quinta South
Excellent condition and layout. Use every club in the bag, fast sloopy greens.

Great scenery and backdrop to most holes

Up and down golf course with a few blind shots. The greens were spike so we’re not that fast and did hold the line.

Superb golf course
The course is very well maintained, the design of the course is superb, the location is unbeatable. The buggies are top class, with GPS and in very good condition. If I had to say something that could be improved, I would say that the pro shop was not up to the standard of the course and some areas of the course were under repair, which made it difficult to play.

Top quality course
Superb course, what you’d expect from a course with this reputation. Staff were great. We booked an early start but at hole 9 the rain was so bad we had to give up but the course staff simply booked us to play the back 9 2 days later. As all the locals told us it would - the next day was roasting hot and all the puddles were gone. Not bad for early February!

Very good condition although a challenging course.

Buggies too expensive, €55, when you consider they can't go near the greens. We only used one on the first day, from then onwards we hired electric trolleys at €45 for five rounds from Blue Sky Golf

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 !

Golfing Gem of the Algarve
Played this gem on the 11.08.23 from the Black Tees in very high temperatures and all credit to the Team @quintadolago for the magnificent conditioning of the Golf Course. Greens superb, tees fairways & bunkers similar. Rough rightly very punishing. Great Staff in Golf Shop & Clubhouse. Highly recommended.

1st class
Best course I have ever played.

Service was 1st class from start to finish, course was immaculate, challenging and fun in equal measure.

Just the best golf experience on the Algarve by a country mile

Top Algarve Course
Enjoyed playing this well maintained course. Start early and you can finish in 4 to 4.25 hours - which is saying something since others we talked to, who started later, had 5 hours. That is NOT a pleasure and for the price not acceptable.

Algarve Golfing Gem
An absolute pleasure to play this Algarve Gem. The course was in great condition with immaculate Tees and fairways. The Rough was penal as it ought to be and the Bunkers whilst challenging, had a lovely sand consistency. The Greens were a tad slow but very consistent on the lines and enjoyable to putt on. A lovely warm atmosphere as always in the Pro-Shop and in the Clubhouse with great Staff.

By far the best course we played during our stay. Everything was stunning from hole variety, greens, fairways and scenery and facilities. What a course can’t fault it at all. This is a must play for everyone visiting the Algarve.

Tough Track
Tough undulating fairways and thick rough make for a tricky but very enjoyable course. Fabulously presented on a terrific piece of estate.

The course was magnificent as always, and it's always a joy to walk down the 14th fairway and take in the views.

Play was extremely slow, and despite being told of their strict slow play rules, on the first tee, we didn't see a marshal at all :(

A must play!
This course is a must play when visiting Portugal.

Everything from the time you arrive to the time you finish is exceptional.

Course was in immaculate condition, and some fantastic views from the course.

Would definitely play again.

Class is permanent -Quinta South is a must play
Course was in excellent condition when we played in late June. Everything about Quinta oozes class. Great variety of holes and most with stunning views. A must.

Stunning course. Immaculate tees, fairways and greens. Can’t fault this place in any way. Definitely worth a visit and worth the money.

The South also delivers
Very enjoyable course, on reflection I probably should have played white tees (FYI Australian 16 handicap) as yellow was a tad easy. But beauty of this course is the tees can adjust your experience. Some memorable holes, and in good condition.
David from Ireland

The best of the best
A cut above the rest. It is an expensive round of golf but it’s well worth it to play a course in such fantastic condition. Proper TV golf course. Fairways like carpet and each hole was different to the next. The resort itself is second to none, great service. Will return.

Course was is great condition particularly the greens..

Would not be a fan of the new wood chipping instead of the natural flora and fauna.. not eco-friendly.. the birds and the bees won’t be happy.

I played Quinta 35 years ago and on and off since then . It is the best course on the algarve but it’s way over priced… too expensive.

Fabulous course
Fantastic course that makes great use of its contours. There are huge slopes on every hole, only adding to the interest and beauty of the course. It reminds me of Augusta (not that I’ve actually been there!) with all its ups and downs. Lots of great holes and fast, difficult greens. Fully recommended.

In excellent condition
Course was in excellent condition, particularly the greens which were fast and true. Some really excellent holes across the water on the back nine, a great experience.

A great course to play!
Very nice course, perfect conditions. Great fairways and splendid greens. Maybe a little expensive for the buggy (50€). Very nice surroundings.
Stefan from Germany

Some improvement
Played the south on the opening day. Great condition, some very welcome improvements, for example hole no 8. But it is basically the same course with lots of uphill second shots. Good course, overpriced, not world class

Besonderes Golfvergnügen
Wir waren fast ganz alleine auf diesem wunderbaren Golfplatz. Eine weitläufige Anlage mit herrlichen Löchern entlang der Lagune. Es war ein besonderes Golfvergnügen.

Best experience in Portugal
Course itself is very nice: a lot of different holes, nice scenary, very good quality of fairways and fast greens. Besides high quality buggies with nice seats, good navigation system and served with a bottle of water.

The first hole of Lago South (downwards par-4) has much similarity with the starting hole of the Old course. With a good drive, you can use a wedge to go for a par and gives you confidence for the rest of the round.

Good service during the course if you ask for a band aid, it will be arranged within a few minutes.

Something to improve: the clubhouse which was in construction and the signs to find the reception building. Till Quinta do Lago resort, all signs in orange and suddenly no orange signs anymore..

A nice place....
Well-prepared golf course, good quality of greens, some pretty views and some incredible villas !!!!! Interest of the draw?

However a nice place to play a round of golf!!!

Still a classic!
Tee off at 11:45 paired with a lovely Swedish couple, no one in front or behind, round in 4 hours 15 mins, course a lovely test, with several rise and falls, greens good, back nine the most memorable. Nice touch food buggy lady went and got real coffee, only downside new clubhouse in construction so lack of focal point before round and after. Best option cafe next to driving range.

Hard if you aren’t paying attention
This is a tough course. Harder than Laranjal and Quinta North. Not as hard as Pinehros Altos. Tighter fairways and testing terrain. Need to be on your game and paying attention
Jack from United Kingdom
on Mon, 16th Sep 2019
Very nice, if play here then play Laranjal
Lovely course, great layout with some testing holes. 15th par 3 needs to be hit well.

Course was looking a little tired in places but on the whole very good.

Review of Quinta do Lago South 4/9/19, 8 players
The course was fantastic probably one of the best we have played in 18 years on our annual trip. Staff very helpful and organised. The only one negative was the food / drink buggy man only came round once and at that point we were on the 17th tee. This could have something to do with the SGF charity golf day on the north course.

Quinta South Course July 2019
Great course accuracy off the tee required course was immaculate. Only criticism was the round was 4 hours in a buggy but afternoon looked very quiet. Must play golf course and I will be back. Great food and service afterwards and Caesar salad was 10/10.

Wonderful course, in good shape. Greens are nice. Personell not trained properly. Too much money for the service you get.

It just seems it is the last money grqb before somebody will switch the lights out. Has anybody looked around and saw young people play?

Great course
A fantastic golf course. Lovely welcome, great facilities, and perfectly well conditioned track. Perhaps not quite as stunning as San Lorenzo, but an absolute joy from start to finish. Would love to play again.
Barnaby from United States

We visited today for the second time and had another great experience. We played the south course and had a great time. The course was in immaculate condition, albeit with slightly sandy greens at times.

The staff were very welcoming and if I had anything at all to offer in terms of feedback, it would be that the green keepers were sometimes a little too present on the course; this was off putting to some of our higher handicappers.

Overall it justifies its hype as a golfing deity.

Best of the 6 we played
We came from America to play Algarve golf. We played 6 courses in the region, and this one was our favorite. The course was exceptionally well maintained, had an interesting layout, and provided challenges while still being playable.
Mark from United Kingdom

Professional but busy.
Good hilly and varied course, but hectic. They let a 5-ball out which was most unacceptable. Nice to have refreshments on the course, plus water and ice in the buggies which are satnav enabked. Stunning course-side properties.

Played Quinta south, great course and in great condition. Tough to put it above villamoura old course for the same green fee. Would definitely play it again though.

Difficult but rewarding
Beautiful, fast greens and well maintained. The South course at Quinta Do Lago is a must for everyone playing golf in Algarve. The course has a great mix of difficult and medium holes, and offers great reward for every golfer.

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.
