Great test of golf
Loved this course
Course in excellent condition and easy 4 hour round
The condition of the course was very disappointing with a lot of pitch marks and bare areas around the greens which were also very slow. We have played here before and it has always been very good but based on this experience it’s unlikely we would book here again, particularly when it’s one of the more expensive courses.
Very good and helpful staff
Excellent layout and a very well maintained golf course. Pleasure to play. Rangers are onto people to maintain 4 1/2 hour pace of play and we were grateful. Pleasant staff as well.
Unbelievable. 10/10 everything. Only “-“ driving range expensive
Easy to play course if you stay on the short grass!
Great course and venue. In superb condition all round. The rough on the front 9 is quite long at the moment (perhaps too long as it is slowing the game a bit) more so than the back 9, putting a premium on hitting fairways. Some very picturesque holes too. Service and food in the clubhouse was top draw too. Well worth a visit albeit at the top of the pricing range. We will be back
Course is in excellent condition
Wow! What an amazing place. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and nice clubhouse overlooking the 1st of the South course. The buggies are absolutely stunning! The condition of QDL South is probably the best I have ever played on. Really good course and interesting mix of holes. 9.5/10
We played the Laranjal today because of a mix up the South course was a shotgun start but the man doing tee times got us transport for free to the Laranjal and he phoned ahead.The course was amazing me and my son really enjoyed it staff were very helpful.
Very good although very busy
Excellent only issue was being slow played really bad throughout the 18 holes. But the course and staff were excellent
Thought the course would be better for the price
Great course but probably the toughest. Stay out of the rough!
Fantastic experience right from booking to finishing on the 18th. Would highly recommend. I am a 2 handicapper and the course is perfect for a challenge but also for higher handicappers.
Good course but unfortunately far too slow
Lovely course. Well maintained and an excellent test of golf.
Course in excellent condition , but very busy, due to tee off @ 2pm, ended up nearer 2.20. Round took 5 hrs
Stunning course. Excellent staff.
Excellent course, tee boxes, fairways and greens in great condition. Food was also very good and reasonable value. Although it is a walkable course, buggy is advised but similar to most courses in the area, the cost of buggies is far too high.
World Class. Immaculate.
Golf course in great condition and a pleasure to play once again. Taxi transfers as arranged through yourselves late with morning pick up.
Excellent. Well run. Fair course. No waiting.
Long fairways, challenging water obstacles, beautyful sights on landscape and ria formosa. Hole 19 with very friendly service, good food and reasonable prices.
Wonderful course and facilities. The speed of play was OK, but the course Marshalls could be better at keeping people moving.
Lovely course and condition excellent
Always enjoy our visit to Quinta, course in great condition, staff very friendly and efficient, well worth a visit, although be prepared for hefty green fees
Love playing here , friendly staff, course in great condition
Course in excellent condition and facilities were great
Andy holed his 2nd shot from 155yds on the 16th to win our match.
Everyone in group enjoyed this course.
Quinta do lago south is a real treat to play. Challenging for the lower handicaps to score on with their fast and sloping greens and wide enough not to be too penal for the higher handicap golfers. Very enjoyable and can’t wait to come back.
superb course in excellent condition, every hole interesting and enjoyable to play. Greens fast and true just the way I like them.
Loved the whole days experience from start to finish
Great course and great service. Also like the North course they worked at trying to get us to be 2 3balls rather than the 4 and 2 with some strangers. Appreciated. In tip top condition and a good challenge.
Superb staff very helpful desk. Course was fantastic with no delays until the 10th when they used two tee starts. Front 9 in 1 hour 20 mins back nine 2 and a half hours not very good!!
Fantastic condition. Immaculate. Top draw venue . A must for any visit
South is our favourite course. Again in excellent condition. It was busy but we were not held up at all compared to 5.5 hour plus rounds in Vilamoura. Staff are good here and organise the operation very well.
One of the best, if not the best golf course in the Algarve. The course presented himself in perfect conditon. The staff all around the course was very friendly. All around an exemple for all the others. Thank you.
Beautiful course and all staff very helpful but unaware until we arrived that the range didn't open until 1000 on a Thursday, which was when we were booked to play.
Customer service great and course in good condition. My only small issue is restricting buggies from 50 metres plus of greens. I understand why but it seems excessive for someone with restricted mobility
very goog experiance
Marcel M. Hopman
Always one of the nicest courses of the Algarve!
Friendly people, very hospitable, especially the marshal. He explained the course and allowed us to play together which is always a great pleasure. As it is stated that this is one of the most beautiful courses in the Algarve (also on banners along the road). I was personally disappointed. Especially the back nine I experienced them as moderate. I found the sister course Laranja more attractive and challenging. But that too is a personal opinion.
Very beautiful course. Wide fairways. Large villas around the course. Not too much, not too close. Overall nice feeling.
Brilliant course in great condition
Average, just ok
Still very attractive to play
Course very good, There are no ball scrubbers on the course for this price
Course in excellent condition. Greens were perfect. Quinta da lago never disappoints
Course in very good condition
Great course & company with Carlos & his wife was fantastic & a pleasure to play with
EXCELLENT COURSE. FITS VERY WELL WITH MY GAME
Very good day with a friendly welcome. We could start when ready, the course was in great condition and the pace of play was ok, even though the marshal was missing. The team at the restaurant was very nice and helpful. Experience to do again.
My favourite, just a pleasure to play very aesthetically pleasing, beautiful golf course.
Wonderful course in great condition.
Course in good condition. Greens ok, a little slow.
Great set up , lovely people
Great course it is one of the more expensive so it’s disappointing that they put so many people on it resulting in a 5 hour round
Wow. For us that was the best golf course in Portugal. The layout and the condition of the golf course was amazing. The only thing that would be nice is the 18th hole. It didn't look like a final hole of a brilliant golf course.
Played many times but in great condition this year.
Quinta south is a great test of golf . We play there regularly but unfortunaltely the cost of golf in Portugal has become very expensive especially when you add in a buggy and practice balls . I think there should be more packages available especially when you only want to play 2 rounds The choise of coarse deals are very limited when you only have a short break .
Excellent and very scenic course.
Excellent. Top class course
Amazing course ,beautiful fairways with excellent greens
Again greens were a little slow but otherwise excellent
Perfect spot, perfect course
Fantastic golfcourse in excellent shape. Nice to be back again and see the exploration of the area.
Excellent. Course very good but stay out rough grass .
A nice course in good condition. Very slow pace on the course 5 and a half hour. The course was wet anf there was cart path only with the carts.
What a great service at the reception and at start. Also the course was the best we played this week. The greens were not super fast but still very good ! Top course with a great layout.
Heavy traffic on the course evident in its condition on the day
Remains my favourite course in Algarve
Never fails to impress with its quality and vistas. Top class.
Fantastic course clubhouse and overall experience a great stretch of holes particularly towards the back end of of the back 9
Perfect course. Wonderful !
Lovely course, very enjoyable day
This is a lovely course and in great condition. Unfortunately our experience was spoiled by the pace of play. 5 hours 45 mins for 18 holes is simply unacceptable. The on course marshalls need to up their game and enforce what they preach.
Perfect! Fantastic course, friendly staff - couldnt have been any better!
Didn’t realise we would be playing with another 2 players Course and playing partners very slow If was original 2 ball we would have been through the group in front within 3 holes but slow play from others on our booking prevented
Beautiful course; one of the best; Very good service
Staff very helpful and friendly
Staff are helpful and friendly
Staff helpful and friendly
Really good. Great course, with great golf holes & a fair test for all golfers. Would definitely play again.
Excellent condition apart from the tough too deep. Hard to walk on it let alone play out if it. But that’s my only negative, Hence a 9 / 10
Like the changes that have been made , very good
Quinta is better than either of the Valle do lobo courses
Quinta do Lago South course was in very great condition. It is clear that QdL has put a lot of effort in the yearlong reconditioning of that specific course. Great result and a delight to play. From tee to green. Top! Only thing is that they have to reset the gos system in the buggies to allow also distances to bunkers etc from the tee. Today it operated only at frint of the fairway!
Great course best in Quinta now
Our favourite of this holiday
tough course but in great condition. The rough is tricky is to get out of but you should not put the ball there. Great service in the clubhouse and buggies have GPS
Great, course, views and facilities.
Excellent all round. Lovely course, fantastically maintained and presented.
Friendly staff course in much better condition than the Royal . Great service
John Robert Bracken
Very good great condition good test of golf
Excellent course.. excellent facilities. Transfers were perfect.

fabulous course in great condition
Golf heaven! Fantastic!
Very enjoyable course
Course in Good conditions.
Excellent course, well presented and a pleasure to play.
Paddy Mc Connell
Once again Quinta south delivered on all fronts. Magnificent course and facilities that cannot be faulted. My favorite course to play.
Always enjoy playing South. One of the best presented courses on the Algarve.
Good service, well maintained golf courses.
A superb golf course, always a pleasure
Course in poor state-first time I’ve played since trees taken down-wood shavings included large pieces of wood
Alexander Joss Grant
Very busy but play kept moving. They prefer 4 balls so be aware you may be grouped together. Course in great condition. Facilities have been heavily refurbished. A very nice experience.
The south is my favourite course in the algarve. However I have to say that the composition of the new fairways is poor. There is a lot of dead/ yellow grass on all the holes. In contrast the greens are magnificent, true and fast. Still a great experience but could be better
Tee Times reply: Bermuda grass with low temperatures stay yellow, still good to play
In spite of heavy rain the course drained well and the service was 1st class
Excellent course, fairways in very good condition, greens fast and got faster as the sun came out. Binkers lots of white sand and well maintained. flog later was also good. Best golf day this holiday.
Fabulous service and course. We managed to move our tee time forward to avoid the rain.
Course was in perfect condition. It was a bit longer walk than some other courses, but that is not a negative. Drink cart was always around. Driving range is very good. They suggested yellow tees for women, which was long.
Tee Times reply: They have a diferent set of colours
Professional and friendly
The best of the Quinta Courses. In very Good Conditions. Must play, second nine are the beste.
Great course in great condition
Cours in perfekt condition
Best of all good Quinta Courses, playable with trolley, very good maintanence
Very good cont
Course in good order. However, play was slow. Staff were very good and approachable.
Dominik L. Zuhorn
Einer der schönsten Golfplätze an der Algarve, mit einigen interessanten Löchern, sehr gepflegt in wunderschöner Natur.
Warm welcome at the reception and the club house. Course in excellent conditions.
Wonderful golf course and staff could not be more helpful and accommodating.
Very good playing conditions for the winter season. Large variety of challenging holes. Definitely a good choice.
Very good course and in good condition, as we teed off early we flew around. Pin positions difficult but made a fair challenge. Food and beverage good. Still one of my favourite courses.
Course in great condition
Course in good condition for time of year. Greens are tricky, 2 putting is generally good!
Very pretty course
The changes to Quinta south are impressive. South is a bit more user friendly than. North. A terrific golf course with lovely views. The greens need careful reading undulated fairways, water and lakes. Very enjoyable.
Everything was perfect!
Nice Course ????
Greens were sanded
nice course, well maintained. helpful and friendly staff
Fantastic course . Tees,fairway and greens great. The rough was too high for the average golfer. Very easy to lose your ball just off the fairway. Round was slow due to everyone looking for their ball. Staff very very good. We were late for our tee time and they took us out to meet up in the correct position on the course.
Excellent course well presented. This was our first day at the QDL clubhouse and were surprised that the hot water for the showers had not been switched on. The staff apologised and when we returned to play Quinta North all was ok.
Fine course. In good condition. A little short. Definetley think the North is better though.
Lovely course in great condition. Greens are amazing. Biggest downside was the twi 4 balls ahead of us were complete beginners, shouldn't be on the course
What a golf course. Super. Very friendly people and very good service. The greens were sandy but no problem because they were fast anyway.
Interesting course with steep slopes, punishing rough and fast greens. Very busy and pace of play extremely slow (~ 5 hours).
Paul Antony Reynolds
1st class is what Quinta is about . Top course in fantastic condition and the whole place is a joy to visit .
Magnifique parcours entouré de superbes villas .... fairway très compliqué car sec et dur ... Green parfaits et complexes ...
As with our first day at Laranjal, we had a really great time on a superb golf course with facilities second to none. Thank You.
One of the best courses I ever played. The design is very interesting. The course is in excellent shape. Congratulations.
Played south course yesterday. Absolutely stunning course fantastic condition faultless!!! Greens receptive but very quick! Getting buggy at the start was a bit of hassle as none were available so everyone waiting for them being brought around. Parking good and still spaces available at 1300. Long course up and down so buggy recommended.
Greens were poor
Great course, facilities and service. Still the favourite course on the Algarve
Opened since refurb and superb condition
only opened 8 days ago after refurb great condition but very soft under foot not worth hiring buggies as have to stay on paths worth playing
As usual the course was very well presented and the service was excellent. My only negative comment would be that it was a 5 Hour Round because the course was so busy.
M. MICHEL GROSSE
Très bon parcours, Mais la préparation c’est n’importe quoi Préparation US OPEN, on perd les balles à 50 cm Du fairway dans un rough totalement injouable. Très bon Green, très bon fairway
The layout of the course was fantastic. Some amazing holes and course was in great condition. Customer service fantastic and very welcoming atmosphere. A superb experience all round.
The Course and the Greens TOP
The booking and voucher worked perfectly - thank you
Great course, in excellent condition
It’s a commercial golf course with a lot of people. So the game is very slow. However the course is of good quality and the staff welcoming.
BRUNO DE GIULIO
No problem with the booking. The course it isn’t easy. You must be used to dry fairways, thick rough and fast green. Best holes: 15 16
Fantastic course layout, excellent greens, fast and true. Professional, courteous and helpful staff. Clubhouse currently closed as being renovated.
There was a competition so they feared it would be very slow as I was on my own. They moved me to the North course which I enjoyed playing.
Loved it and looking forward to playing it again
Excellent course good condition for the time of year.
Very enjoyable round! Never waited to play a shot. Round in under 4 hours. Course in great condition. Unbeatable
Didn’t play South we played north. Shame about no clubhouse facilities but north was in great condition
Like always, best service and to see Victor in the shop is always nice. The course is in a really good condition , compliment.
A very good course with beautiful views Quick greens, winter condition fairways, well raked bunkers and a very good design by RTJ provide a good setting for a nice round of golf. Friendly people in the reception and along the course. Everything was good apart from my own golf, but cannot blame QdL for that.
Disappointed with Quinta South this time. Great golf course however staff were a bit rude at times at when we arrived at the first tee we were told we were off the 10th. Bad communication. Our tee time was then taken by 2 x 4 balls. Spoilt the experience.
Très beau parcours avec des Greens extrêmement compliqués !!!
Great course but the condition was not as good as on previous visits.
Very no ce golfcourse. Well maintained. Friendly staff.
Very good day all around especially on the South course only let down by the bacon sandwiches!!!
Tres beau parcours mais trop de monde, on attend sur chaque trou, pour faire un maximum de recette ils nous ont fait commencé au 10, bilan, arrivé au 1, plein de monde et un retour fastidieux. Donc on a abandonné au 8, raison de temps mais parcours sublime Par co,tre difficile à trouver pas de signalisation et plusieurs golfs se touchent dans ce secteur mais ce sont les plus beaux golf d'algarve
Still one of the best courses in the Algarve. Great layout, some really good holes and no weak ones. Condition was also excellent - a must play.
Fantastic golf course very quick and true greens .
All excellent - from booking, reception, course staff and course condition.
Excellent course and a pleasure to play it
Great course in good condition, hardly anyone there
Fariways in great condition, greens have been well used and a little on the tired side
M. Perez de Zabalza
Nice field and perfect service
Excellent course - far better than San Lorenzo at less than half the price . Finished in less than 3 hours - first two ball out
Had a great time playing with the society. Would highly recommend and will play in it again next time I’m over .
I really enjoyed my first outing with Chez Carlos. I enjoyed the challenge of the course and also the players I was with. I look forward to playing in an outing again soon.
Fantastic booking service, polite, attentive and good value for money
Wonderful golf course, perfectly maintained
Arrived. Everything booked and arranged by Tee times. Will definitely use again. Thank you.
Same result here as north excellent time
Excellent venue, very enjoyable round of golf.
Very professional and organised and welcomed us. Great golf course in excellent condition. We enjoyed our round of golf immensely!!????
Excellent course in very good condition
Very easy to check in. Wonderful course
Brilliant course in great condition , facilities first class .
Quinta South is one of my favourite courses on the Algarve. Today every hole presented well, the greens were in good condition and we all had a very enjoyable round without any hold ups. We will be back.
Course was in good condition again we got round in under.4 hours. Staff were accommodating and shuffled things around to enable us to get off early.
Brilliant course , generous fairways with good greens . Definitely play it again . Only thing I would say against it is ,I don’t think any course is worth more than 100 euro .
Course has undergone maintenance work in the last week, so was not 100%, but good enough. Reception wanted to charge me for the 2 buggies initially,but after a phone call to you? Confirmed it was included in our package.
Classic but beautiful. Too busy
Very friendly staff. Unfortunately the terrace was out of action for refurbishment. Fairways were rather worn but greens were good.
Expensive, but worth it.
Nice golf course a bit too hilly for me . the front 9 is nice but the back 9 is not to my taste.
excellent course. Conditions great.
Another excellent course and similar to North in quality of maintenance and speed of play. Again a great improvement from last year and will be on our list for next year
A great course in good condition. It was quite crowded but we managed to get round in a reasonable time.
The course is as fantastic as ever and not overcrowded
Staff sensibly juggled start arrangements to avoid 4balls: we started on 10th. Friendly staff . Course in very good condition.
Great course , very tricky
Peter S Watson
Top class design, a beautiful course. Attention could be given to tidying up minor areas. Greens excellent but in my view too quick for average golfers given the weather and undulations.
Gorgeous course and very pleasurable to play
This is a fantastic golf course- one of my top two courses in the Algarve. The greens were fabulous and the views are spectacular. Can’t wait to play it again.
Quinta is now up there in my top 5 ever. Great course and the all round experience was a joy.
Much more better than the North course.
Excellent course - difficult to fault it
Great course, exzellent layout. Course in a good condition (mid-february). Not very busy, so we had a very good pace of play. Very friendly people overall. Price at a high level, but OK.
In good condition. Good pace of round. Staff courteous
Golf Course in einem sehr gutem Zustand. Das Personal im Clubhaus (North und South) ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.
Magnifique. Super green. Parcours très exigeant. À découvrir.
Fantastic course and very good condition. Unfortunately there were heavy rain after front nine and then course was quite wet
Beau golf beaucoup monde bien entretenu
Brilliant from start to finish
Fantastic course, great set up lovely true greens and friendly staff, the perfect combination you want when you are paying a lot of money for a round of golf.
Very nice and difficult
Professional, attentive and friendly staff. Course was in good condition although the greens had been pencil tined.
Superb course and in fantastic condition
Mr Bill holmes
Great course but very slow - over 5 hours, This seems to be a regular feature of Quinta, not just a few slow groups. 8 minute intervals are too tight, particularly when there are a lot of holiday golfers. Inserting groups on the 10th doesn't help. We arrived at our scheduled time and then had to wait 25 minutes for rwo 4 balls starting there
It is an excellent golf course and we all really enjoyed. Pick up and collection we on time.
Great day. Course was perfect. Customer service at arrival and during day was excellent. A high improvement on ptrevoyeard.
Glenn M. Gyi
Very challenging course with some narrow fairways and lots of water but was in excellent condition. Very much enjoyed playing it and the facilities and service were excellent
Great services, very well organised & no problems checking in for our tee off times. Polite professional people, course & facilities were superb.
Course in great condition and staff very welcoming
Amazing course. Arrived late and managed to squeeze us in which was terrific. Very friendly staff!
Quality course. Top class
Excellent friendly welcome. Beautiful course.
Course in excellent condition and greens excellent
Very nice complex, very nice golf course, very nice service
This is my favourite golf course on the Algarve. Today was no reason to change that view. Beautiful conditions on a beautiful course. Fairways in great condition and immaculate greens. What pleasure to play this great course. Don’t miss the chance to play here.
Very good - very nice welcome , shop very helpful ( we didn't have a printed voucher) . Course excellent - difficult to choose but this was our best course this trip ( from QDL north , Victoria and VDL ocean ) . Two tiny moans - we didn't once see the buggy bar - fortunately we had water with us bought at the bar before we started ( a tad expensive -12 euros for four 500ml bottles ???) The course was superb so that took away any slight disappointment .
Fantastic course, good playing partners, great day, fabulous scenery
All good , great course
Fab check in, they were prepared already for our arrival and the course was outstanding even if the round was 5 hours plus...
Very pleasant round, greens fast & true. All staff friendly & helpful.
Excellent course layout. I thought for the time of year the course would have been in better condition. Staff in pro shop were friendly as were the staff on the patio afterwards serving drinks. I would definitely play again however I feel it is over priced. 100 Euro without a cart would be more than enough for this course.
Always a pleasure to play (despite adverse comments below). Great condition, especially the very fast greens. Some holes really need to be redesigned. 8th is unplayable - no matter how good the drive, it finishes in left rough, frequently blocked out by trees, fairway needs to be levelled off. 9th fairway needs to be extended back towards tee, currently only reachable by lower handicap golfers. 18th fairway is unfair, all drives end up in right tress, fairway only capable of being held by driving over bunker, achieveable only by low handicappers - fairway needs to be levelled off.
Everything went perfect, Great course
Hard to find fault, everything from clubhouse to course to bar top notch
I really enjoy playing this course. It is so well laid out and the organisation is perfect. Slight quibble this year was that there were quite a lot of returfed areas on the course which hadn't taken so parts of the areas around the greens looked poor.
We enjoyed our round but I think the course was in better condition last year.
Still a great course but showing it’s age a bit.
Too expensive especially the extra €50 for a buggy
Really great. One hole was being worked on and it should have had some areas as gur which would have made it easier to play
Slow play , return pickup to early
Positive experience, the course was in formidable condition
Dr. Alfred Etzrodt
nice day good golf well organised
fantastic golf course friendly staff only negatives were the driving range closed on Wednesday afternoons and the practice putting area was slower than the greens apart from that all was great!
This course is very good. Even yesterday it was heavy raining, it was in a perfect condition. Very friendly staff!
Caspar von der Crone
Great place, was fun and we will be back. Very friendly staff
Brilliant course, better to use a cart, perfect greens and fairways
Good course but there seemed to be some work around the greens. Maybe they should advise you of any changes.
Everything was very good. Course excellent condition. Staff excellent.
Our experience in Quinta Da Lago was exceptional. The south course was a very good test and we really enjoyed it. The service from the staff and the condition of the golf course will certainly lead us to return and play the other courses in Quinta Da Lago.
Staff were pleasant and helpful. Food was good and the golf course still very nice to play. Looked a bit tired compared to Quinta North and having played them both fell in love with Quinta north. That would get a nine.
Superb course & brilliant greens. We were given the option to play earlier (which we took & were glad we had) otherwise we may not have got a full 18 holes in at 1pm. It should not take 4.5 hours to play 18holes - 3.5-4 hours maximum! Again problems with speed of play, etiquette & golfing competence from some players. Golf courses in Portugal need to ask for handicap certificates rather than money!!! This is a fabulous course & well worth playing but nowhere is worth 120 Euros..........(never mind more in some places)
Excellent one of our favourite course, Greens excellent
Superb course. Really enjoyed this. Practice facilities and buggies excellent. Only disappointment was amount of damage to the greens through unrepaired pitch marks. This though entirely the fault of players rather than the course. Would definitely go back here.
Beautiful course. One of the best in the Algarve. Well maintained course and very friendly service. best regards, marc
Beautiful course best of the four we played. Buggies expensive particularly when on paths only.
Well established with some wonderful holes definitely a course to play nice clubhouse
Excellent service but greens heavily pitch marked
Good experience. Generally felt by the Group that it was the best course of the 5 we played. I prefer Laranjal but I was a lone voice. Got round quickly though we did start very early so there was no one ahead. Don't know what it would have been like later in the day.
very busy, of course it was high season
As North course but more positional play required. Rated this 5th
Course excellent , Staff very good
Still has to be one of the best in the Algarve
Course was in good condition.
Excellent course and staff.
Lovely classic algarve course. Really enjoyable
Quinta do Lage South was an absolute superb course with some stunning, picturesque holes....... very enjoyable.
Needed to cancel and rebook and the service was excellent! Thank you
A fantastic course that I would love to play again. This was my favourite course out of the 5 courses that I played.
I had a fabulous day . Lovely course .
Played Quinta do Lago South on several occasions in the past and disappointed this time as the fairways had clearly undergone maintenance with lines and alittle patchy. Perhaps, the golf course should reduce fees in these situations as expensive to play when you should be experiencing the best conditions for the price paid.
Excellent quality experience overall, buggy had sat nav. Customer service is very good.
Best course I've played on will play again.
Great to get back onto the South course having seen it closed for June maintenance the past few years. A favourite of many of our group, well thought out course with amazing villas as the backdrop. The area around 14/15/16/17 with the Lake is stunning.
Outstanding beautiful course, a very close second to Faldo. We would love to play it again in the future.
Excellent golf course, quite hilly for anyone walking with the manual trolley. Greens excellent
Our favourite course.
Very friendly, course was very nice. It is, however, hilly and quite hard walking, so I would recommend people who aren't very fit to take a buggy!
Excellent..only buggy fee of € 55 very steep.
Courses are very expensive to play, poor value for the money.
Tee Times reply: This golf course is world class , brand new buggys, gps
I prefer this course instead of its sister course, this course favours the long hitter
Excellent, the course was championship quality as you would expect. Staff were extremely helpful and professional,
Again in our top 4 courses - excellent
Nice golf course
The course design winds around complexes of Villas,apartments & Mansions but there is plenty of room to stray off line.The rough on most of the courses is kept low for speed of play but still reaches 4-5 hrs even with buggies.The greens on this course are superb with a few undulations to keep you busy.
Great golf course. The French lad who was the starter on the 10th let our experience down.
Pedro Gonçalo Bandeira Fernandes
Ótimo campo. Grande visual.
First time for a few years we had played. Overall confirmed that this is a great place to golf
Fantastic course, up there with the best ive payed along with the Old Course in Vilaoura and Woburn in the UK. Course was in fantastic condition, greens were probably the fastest and most difficult ive played in a long time (good thing!). Only gripe would be we played off the yellow tees, i play off 8 and am a reasonably big hitter, therefore didnt find it that long. If play at the Quinta group next year, which i think we probably will, i'd ask if we can play off the whites, as this looked far more challenging from these tee beds. In summary a great course and i'll definately play it again. Fantastic clubhouse and facilities, staff very friendly.
Very nice golf course - badly sign posted however, difficult to find
Very good. Course in very good condition. Cannot fault.
always in good nick and enjoyable to play
Great course and facilities. We were let down by transfers on this day to the course but after a few phone calls taxis were arranged and paid for by the golf without any problems. We ended up late for the tee time but fortunately the course was not busy. If it had been busy it might have been a problem !!
Condition was as good as usual
Good condition, as always. However, severe slope to left on 8th and bunker left/slope to right on 18th are serious flaws, resulting in there being no right way to play either hole. This seriously detracts from what is otherwise a fantastic course
Excellent. The course was in fine condition. The staff in the clubhouse and on the course were extremely courteous and helpful.
Ok, we had some light rain this day. The course is in better condition than a year ago. Play rather slow!
the better of the 2 courses in my opinion. some great holes. Buggy costs of €50 each .are unreasonable
amr el cherif
We received a warm welcome and the course was not in as good condition as the other courses. some tee boxes were poor and there seemed to be a lot of damage around the greens (compared to last year)
The south course is excellent very challenging but with some fantastic holes. Greens firm and true. Love the course. Again it will be a regular feature of our annual trip.
Good course and very friendly staff
The redevelopment had a light negative impact that could not be helped but the course condition was disappointing. The worst it has been since I first played it 25 years ago
The course was excellent. Again Marshalling was poor, same experience as the Old course with a very slow 4 ball.
Superb course and great service once again.Nice new buggies too!still one of the best courses for me.
Used to be my favourite course, but looks tired now and the condition of fairways and tee boxes really poor.
Players reported that they had thoroughly enjoyed their day
Players reported that they had thoroughly enjoyed their day
Very good course, some of our less able golfers (15, 16, 18 HCP) found it very challenging but all players really enjoyed.
A fantastic place to play golf . Could never tier of playing golf here . Superb.
not in great condition for price paid
Always a very enjoyable course in a beautiful setting. Maybe course maintenance not up to usual high standard but still enjoyed the golf.
Chez Carlos Golf Society
Our first Summer Event was always likely to be popular after all we were to play one of the finest courses in the Algarve at a very special price followed by a BBQ back at our base in Vilamoura. We gathered mid-morning at the QDL driving range for a brief presentation at the new Paul McGinley Fitting Centre. State of the art video equipment and swing analysis with professional assistant ensures your new clubs are tailor made. It is well worth a visit. Quinta Do Lago South has hosted the Portuguese Open eight times. In 1989, Colin Montgomerie won his first European Tour event here by an impressive 11 strokes, set a course record of 63 and a Tour record of 24 under par. The course is laid out on beautiful undulating terrain with shady umbrella pines and a few man-made lakes that attract many aquatic bird species. The signature hole is the scenic par-3 15th (160mts) with a long carry over a lake to the green set amongst pine trees. Warren Griffiths took the honours of nearest the pin here after hitting his shot to within a metre and securing a birdie. Special mention must also go to Paul Beevers taking the Longest Drive with a mighty 283mts on the fabulous 17th hole – awesome. The course was in fine condition which is something that you always come to expect from Quinta. Sun and blue skies were the order of the day though a coastal breeze helped from the temperature from soaring – perfect. Multiple prizes today with four nearest the pin competitions, Gross Score, net Stableford and a Team Stableford. Special thanks are extended to our sponsors that include in no particular order Onyria Palmares, Vale Do Lobo, Monte Rei, Pestana Group, Boavista Golfe, Morgado / Alamos Golfe, Catmandoo Clothing, Chez Carlos Restaurant & Bar, Professional Golfer Monia Bernardo and Chez Carlos member Chris Milford. Afterwards it was an optional return back to The Chez Carlos Restaurant & Bar for a specially prepared BBQ that included suckling pig, wild boar and octopus salad. Our thanks are extended to Fillipe and his team for looking after us so well and to all those that took part throughout the day. It was a great event and one which we are sure to repeat.

Chez Carlos Golf Society Tournament @ Quinta Do Lago South
It has been two years since the Society last played at Quinta Do Lago so a visit was long overdue. The course is laid out on beautiful undulating terrain with countless shady pines and a few man-made lakes that attract many aquatic bird species. Long hitters can take full advantage of some generous fairways but correct placement of shots is required to score well. The 15th Par 3 is the signature hole demanding a long carry over water. Depending on the wind it could be a driver! The course was in fine condition and was well on the way to be being perfect just in time for the start of a new golf season (mid September); all that was needed was the rain - not a common occurence in August. Clive Davies started with an impressive birdie at the first hole to hand a card in with 36 points after a recent 2 shot handicap reduction by the Society. There was a three way scramble for second place with 29 points. It was Paul Loerns first time playing golf in Portugal. Quinta do Lago is certainly a course to impress and it showed on his face after the game - welcome to the Society Paul.
