Designed by WILLIAM MITCHELL from the USA and opened in 1974, Quinta do Lago South Course hosted the “Portuguese Open Championship” eight times; 1976, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2001, and many other important professional and amateur championships. The favorite of many tour players, set in a natural setting surrounded by umbrella pines, lakes, wild vegetation and with the stunning Ria Formosa in the backdrop.

Each hole has generous landing areas off the tees and well-defined routing amongst the woodland pines’ setting. This layout encourages the average player to hit their drivers, but calls for accurate driving and fairway shot precision to reach the greens in regulation. The players will discover a good variety of doglegs and strategically well located hazards obstructing the line of play for anyone who strays far from the optimum line. The front nine favour a draw, whilst the back nine a fade from the tee. Holes 8, 15 and 18 are the most testing for the scratch player whilst holes 3, 12 and 17 offer the best possibilities to see more birdies putts.
