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.

Another good course and in great condition. However most golfers seem unable to repair pitch marks!

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.

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.

One of the best
Our favourite course. Could be considered to be one of the Algarve’s best courses. Look forward to playing it again.

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.

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.

Quinta south
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.

comfortable parkland course with some very beautiful holes. Maintanance is good, greens with medium speed and good to play. Many people and relativly expensive

Best course in quinta do lago
Top quality golf course . Top quality facilities and Highly prices , €148 a round .

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.

Looked tired -but they were doing work on course so possibly unfair to criticise !

Good marshalling

Winter special -excellent deal - especially when compared with rip -off San Lorenzo

This course never disappoints. Great way to start a week of golfing in the Algarve, some great holes, but can be a little hilly in places

A beautiful course and our favorite this far. Well designed ,fair but strategic shots required .
Ivan from Ireland

The course is beautiful, especially the back 9. Played off the whites quite long but get your away and you have a fair shot at the greens. Only downside I played front 9 first, then had to wait behind people starting off the 10th. But all in all a gorgeous course.

Course Is underrated versus North. Great views and sight lines around the course. Last Par 3 spectacular.
Gareth Purshouse from United Kingdom

Very much enjoyed playing this course, we played early in the morning and although we had some rain over night the greens were in perfect shape, some areas of rough were quite wet and juicy but they soon dried out around the turn. Would certainly play this course again although a lot of the holes were quite similar.

This is a beautiful course, and the houses that adjoin the course are stunning. The conditions around some of the greens were not perfect, but overall the conditions were good. It is a very hilly course, so walking can be tiring.

Lovely, but too expensive.
Lovely course. Too pricey, and the clubhouse is disappointing.

Great course
Great course in good condition with lovely greens. Need to play it again as got caught out with the blind tee shots on some holes, but overall a good challenge with some nice holes. Would play again anytime.
