The most charismatic golf course

Situated in the Quinta do Lago luxury resort and forming part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, San Lorenzo Golf Course lingers long in the memory of all who play it – a combination of natural beauty, pristine presentation and hole after hole of challenging golf.

San Lorenzo golf course has been named One of the Top 15 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe together with its sister hotel Dona Filipa by Golf World magazine. Guests of Hotel Dona Filipa have privileged access to San Lorenzo golf course and benefit from a free 10-min. courtesy bus ride.

The ultimate pleasure

While much of the San Lorenzo Golf Course goes through typical Algarvian pinewoods, it also opens to stunning ocean views and distant mountain backdrops. A good part of San Lorenzo is virtually an extension of the surrounded nature of Ria Formosa, with fairways that run alongside saltwater marshes and freshwater lagoons. This protected environment is the habitat of over 70 bird species. The impeccable maintenance of San Lorenzo golf as well as the careful course management are definitively user-friendly.

An unforgettable round of golf

The two 9-hole groupings form a figure of 8, with the comfortable clubhouse at their centre. A round at San Lorenzo Golf Course, in the Algarve, begins with an enticing but almost unachievable Par 5, before continuing to the three following holes along rolling, pine tree fringed fairways. It is from hole No. 5 however, that the most extraordinary part begins, offering wonderful views over the Atlantic Ocean. The exquisite beauty of the Ria Formosa is intensively present at the two Par 4's, 6th and 7th, that hug the edges of the wetlands. At hole No. 8 San Lorenzo course turns back inland and faces the largest of its two lakes. This Par 5 is the most difficult hole, because it requires three perfect shots to reach the - virtually-island - green.

The next Par 5 are 10th and 15th (exercise of bunker dodging) and in between you will experience a series of challenging Par 4 where your best accuracy skills will be required. San Lorenzo golf course again turns seawards and ends with No. 18, a Par 4 hole, which green is surrounded by the waters of the second lake. A remarkable end to remember forever!
