The North Course, the Quinta do Lago's new number one, has been redeveloped with the emphasis firmly on precision and strategy and it's predicted to become one of the new stars of European golf. This popular golf course on Portugal's Algarve formerly known as Ria Formosa is covered by pine trees, heather and wild flowers, and features four magnificent Par 5 holes.

Played the course on Saturday 13th May. We were a 4 ball. Told that there were 8 mins between tees and it was v busy. No buggies on fairways that day which meant carrying a number of clubs to every shot. It took one and a quarter hours to play the first 4 holes ! In front of us were... More

What a lovely well maintained course, it is such a pity that it was spoilt by green staff who just did not care that there were golfers on the course. My ball was run over by a mower twice!!! Green staff were shouting at each other whilst i was trying to take my shot on a number of occasions. Reception... More

Played Saturday in May and endured a 5 1/2 hour round of golf. Seems they fill the course up with only 8 minutes between tees with mostly fourballs on the course and cart path only for buggies this is just greed. Course nice but for the price underwhelmimng. South course which we played a few days before is much better... More

Nice welcome from the board and the green keeper, the fairway was in good shape as well the greens, the carts were given with complimentary water and ice, equipped with GPS maps for each hole, but the system preventing to be too close to the green is a little bit annoying but manageable. The golf wasn't crowdy, we had a... More

We plaid the Quinta do Lago North course with friends. The course was completely re-designed about three years ago and I looked forward to playing. From the three courses of the club (Quinta South, Larajal and Quinta North), I preferred the North Course. It is in extremely good condition, well kept, offers great views and is challenging especially with very... More

We played this a few days after it re-opened after it was revamped a couple of years ago and hated the changes. Having played it twice a year for the last three years I now enjoy it as a top golf course. The bunkers and fairways are more forgiving than the old course, but the greens are much tricker -...

Played 18 holes on a lovely early spring day. After shock of paying 7 euros for range balls, had to ask for directions to get to the 1st tee, not the most obvious golf course to navigate yourself around especially when walking the course. Feels like a modern sprawling resort course, and a 2nd one at that, and definitely geared... More

If your a golfer then yes it's a lovely course and worthy of 5 stars, if not then their is nothing else at Quinta do Lago north. I don't understand why it's rated number 3 out of attractions in Almancil when you have beautiful beaches and the Ria Formosa. I guess it's due to this area being the Mecca of... More
