Quinta do Lago Golf (Laranjal course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2009

The Laranjal course at Quinta do Lago Golf is a well-rated and pleasantly testing golf course. Originally an orange grove, this par-72 championship course is situated in the Ludo valley, just 2km east of the resort. Boasting some spectacular fairways and well-defined greens, Laranjal is renowned for its five beautiful lakes and its abundance of umbrella pines, cork and orange trees.

This tree-lined and open parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted design. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
