The South Course review. Quinta do Lago

Thursday, May 21st, 2015 12:59 pm by .

If ever there was a golf course which captured the hearts of golfers around the world then the South Course at Quinta do Lago is a perfect example. This is a course you will never forget for a variety of reasons; aesthetically she is the real deal, bordering the Ria Formosa nature park and meandering through umbrella pine forest with stunning villas lining the fairways. Then there is the elevation, some dramatic changes perhaps echoing Augusta in many places. The huge greens are formula 1 speed with some very tricky slopes to negotiate and like Quinta’s other two championship courses, the new North Course and Laranjal, you can score well with good course management and accurate shot making.

North Course review. Quinta do Lago

These days the oranges trees line manicured fairways as the stunning Laranjal golf course winds its way through this fertile part of the Quinta do Lago estate.

Vidago Palace Golf Course

Standing on the 17th tee of Vidago Palace Golf Course I had no indication of quite what I was in for. It had been quite a round up to that point; negotiating most of the cunningly placed creeks, coping with Augusta like slopes on the giant greens, and  one wayward fairway wood aside, keeping to most of the fairways.
