Overview

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.

The course itself is decent enough - typical resort course surrounded by villas. Fairways good - greens average with some pretty ropey fringes. The major problem is that they overlook guests. 4 balls at 8 minute intervals will inevitably result in congestion. It took over...More

Played one round here during our recent trip to the Dona Filipa. Good course in decent condition. However, I found it a bit short off the gold tees (6200 yards). If you can I would suggest playing off the black tees.

In my opinion, one of the best courses on the Algarve. Always on our play list. Great greens, nice clubhouse with reasonable food and drink

This course has got to be one of the best in Europe, immaculately presented and challenging but so enjoyable to play. The staff are so friendly and the facilities are first class, only played it once but would happily play there 7 days a week.More
