Was the "Blue Riband" of the Quinta " courses but since the opening of Laranjal and the re-furbishment of Quinta North it is looking a little tired and has probably dropped to number three in the pecking order. It is no longer in the condition it once was and in the 7th hole is probably the worst hole of any... More

I've played this golf course many times and it never fails to delight. It is a great challenge and all bar one of the holes are interesting. The greens are tricky but true and the whole place is beautifully maintained. Beware the blind tee shot on the 3rd - the line is much further right than the way the tee... More

best of the 3 QdL courses but frustrated at being held up behind 2 4balls despite being a twilight 9 holes single! Steep prices (87 euros for a twilight 9 holes at 4pm?) & added extras like range balls at 7 euros & no water stations on course. Enjoyable but not value for money

Should/could be better. Course in poor condition and expensive for what you get. A scenic course that needs to up its game.

Returning for our 8th year we found the experience to be poor. As a two ball we were paired with another couple. We are both 15 h'cap , social ,club golfers who have been Golf Club Members for 20+ years each. The starter introduced us to the other couple on the 1st tee and they told me to tee off.... More

Now this is what you call a good quality course. Having come from golf in Dubai it is hard to find places that impress, but Quinta South certainly did. From the welcome, the pro shop, the Tee Boxwa and manicured fairways and dare I say bunkers... the place is immaculate- even the buggies were great with soft moulded leather seats... More
