Playing the Course
The South Course of Quinta do Lago is considered its crown jewel. Originally designed in 1974 by William Mitchell, who introduced American-standard greens, tees and bunkers to the Algarve, the course has a reputation and is a flagship in Europe.
The South Course has been host to the Portuguese Open eight times but does not deter the amateur golfer. Accurate tee shots are essential for reaching the vast greens and has a variety of doglegs and strategically located hazards to increase the courses’ difficulty.
