Where2Golf says: 

Quinta do Lago Golf (North Course): Not quite the scale or grandeur of the neighbouring Quinta do Lago (South) course, but this is also an excellent test of golf. The course is basically an out and back layout cut through a natural pine forest. Many tee-shots require accuracy rather than length, especially the many dog-leg holes, the most interesting of which is the one watery hole - the 12th. The par-3's are a bit routine, and the lack of "features" or views creates a slight sameness as you go round - but overall a good course to complement its bigger brother. Some long-ish walks between holes.
