Fully renovated course in 2014

The Quinta do Lago North Algarve has been redeveloped by golf architect Beau Welling in close collaboration with the Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley. The Quinta do Lago North golf course was totally rebuilt and represents a total investment of 9,6M€, with the objective to become one of the best Portugal golf courses.

Among the changes at Quinta do Lago North golf course, all greens, tees, bunkers, irrigation and drainage systems and cart paths have been rebuilt. Four sets of tees have been implemented, and a new grass type has been introduced around the greens and other strategic areas to increase the pleasure of playing.

The renovation has also allowed Quinta do Lago North golf course to reduce the impact on the environment by using recycled water and solar energy.

One of the most exclusive venues

Quinta do Lago is an exclusive golf resort nestling in nearly 2000 acres of verdant countryside and pine forests bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the Ria Formosa Natural Park, in the Algarve.

Since its creation in 1972, Quinta do Lago Golf Resort has won several awards for excellence, and it is a symbol of quality tourism in the Algarve, Portugal.

Quinta da Lago is currently on the top five golf venue by Golf World magazine in its list of the "Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe 2018".

Several architects for one project

The Quinta do Lago North Golf Course was designed by numerous architects. William Mitchell was responsible for holes 1 to 5 and 15 to 18, while Joseph Lee and Rocky Roquemore designed the golf course from holes 6 to 14.

The Quinta do Lago North Golf Course offers, however, very different challenges. The Quinta do Lago North Golf Course has 4 magnificent Par 5. The Par 4 are generally doglegs, except for holes 10 and 13. The Par 3 holes are influenced by the Algarve's typical wind, requiring very precise shots. In holes 13 and 18 lakes make a good score quite difficult.

Prime Hole No. 12: don't miss it!

This is a wonderful hole, with lake on the left side, which initiates 150 m., escorting the fairway, till near the green. While on the tee off you can use a long iron, the second shot terrifies because have to fly over the big lake. On the green, there are bunkers on the right and on the final, it’s wide and wavy.
