The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Quinta do Lago Golf (South Course): This is one of the best courses on the Algarve - a course of big dimensions, encouraging big-hitters on the good sized fairways. Over a gently undulating terrain, perhaps a bit more than gentle on the back-nine, there are several elevated greens that will require a club or two more on approach shots. From the 14th to the 17th there is a picturesque loop of holes bringing you down to the water's edge of the Ria Formosa. The course is maintained in excellent condition from the opening downhill par-4 to an equally challenging par-4 finish. An Algarve "must play" course.
