San Lourenco is a par 72 golf course located in Quinta do Lago and is considered one of the best and most beautiful golf courses in Europe. The fact that this is an award-winning golf course is no coincidence. Bordering with the breathtaking Ria Formosa Natural Park, some of its golf holes are blessed with what can only be described as exquisite beauty. If the first holes of San Lourenco golf course present no major surprise or challenges, after the 3rd, closer to the estuary, San Lourenco golf course starts to reveal itself. After the 5th hole, a par-3 and the course's shortest, you're introduced to a dogleg, stroke 1 sixth hole where your main challenge will be to avoid the dense shrub, so make sure you get your distances just right. As you get to the 7th, life is by no chance made easier but you still get the bonus of the outstanding views from this elevated tee before you have to focus on how to get around that green almost entirely surrounded by water. On the back nine, the 12th is the most challenging hole on San Lourenco, featuring a deep chasm along the left of a very narrow fairway. Holes 13th to 16th also face the ocean with the latter proving to be the most demanding par-3, featuring a whole 180 m carry to a shallow green. Seventeenth is, again, extremely beautiful but still falls short of the beauty that awaits you on the last hole. It is a great finale and one that will remain in your memory as it has an excellence that is renowned worldwide. It is, without a doubt, a course for special occasions, that will provide you with unforgettable beautiful moments. Of course such a unique golf course had to have unique requirements concerning the booking of your green fees and that is only possible if you are a guest at the 5 star Dona Filipa Hotel nearby or by contacting a selected few like Tee Times Golf Agency who will make the required arrangements to book what will be one of the most special games of golf you will ever play in your life.
Club house burning down is a factor, but made check in and start of play chaotic and disorganized. No range balls to practice.
The course was in very poor condition , especially the greens which were dreadful.
Greens supposed to have been "immaculate" were actually really poor, no care taken with bunkers. Never a 120 euro golf course
All round very disappointing, the course was in poor condition. The greens were slow and bumpy. The buggy paths were terrible, so uneven that everyone was driving to the side of the paths. Overall the course was tired and in need of a big investment to bring it up to the standard you would expect for the green fee charged. At the end of the round the staff did not ask if we had a good round. We had been to Monte Rei for a couple of days before this game and the contrast was striking. Every aspect of San Lorenzo fell miles short of the Monte Rei standards of excellence. I will take some persuading to go back to San Lorenzo.
The golf course is excellent good test a bit tatty in places paths etc but it is the golf course which stands out
Loved the course, in great condition and a proper test of golf. Very friendly staff
Excellent in every way
The golf course is excellent and the staff were very good. The club house is traditional and whilst the bar, the terrace and the pro shop are all very good, the changing facilities need to be updated.
Great golf course, fantastic layout. A little rougher around the edges than the Dom Pedro Old which I played yesterday but better greens and a superior layout for sure. The cart paths are absolutely dreadful though, and a few tee boxes and the driving range are not level. Highly enjoyable none the less.
