Laranjal Golf Course - In keeping with its reputation for excellence, Quinta do Lago takes great pride in the opening of its new and third 18 hole championship golf course, Laranjal.|Laranjal, originally an orange grove, is today a beautiful and totally different golf experience. It is a sanctuary for those seeking the finest in golf and personalized service. Its narrow fairways and well defined greens require concentration and accuracy to navigate this testing route laid out on a rolling and distinctive terrain.|It is a par 72, 6,480 meters, with five par 5s, eight par 4s, five par 3s set amongst umbrella pines, cork-oaks and orange trees with a natural water course and 5 beautiful lakes.|Penn A4 was selected for the greens to help guarantee good putting surfaces all year round and the Fairways are sown with Bermuda.
Excellent course, friendly reception and bar staff.
This course is always worth to play, even if it‘s not the cheapest one. Very friendly staff. Pace of play was ok with 4 hours; but the 4 players with buggy in Front of us could have played much faster. Wonderful orange-trees; so is the name Laranjal.
Course in excellent condition and the staff were excellent as per usual
Absolutely stunning golf course and in wonderful condition throughout. Plenty of soft sand in every bunker, (and I can attest to that!), fairways beautifully kept and the greens unbelievably fast, but true. Very friendly service throughout and this golf course is a must if you are on the Algarve and looking for a stunning place to play golf. We’ve lived here five years but treated ourselves today to this golf course for the first time. The green fees are very expensive, otherwise we’d play this wonderful course far more regularly.

Very nice welcome and good service; everybody is so nice. The course is just perfect. Thank you very much to all the staff of Laranjal :)
Great services, very well organised & no problems checking in for our tee off times. Polite professional people, course & facilities were superb.
Fantastic course and in great condition. Clubhouse was small, and the gents locker room was tiny but adequate with good toilet and showering facilities. Would certainly go back to Laranjal.
Laranjal was the favourite amongst our group of 8 golfers, we played Victoria, Old and the Faldo, so it was up against some top courses, Laranjal was in great condition, and the vist was enjoyed by all our group from the meet and greet at the start, to the beers after our game, only slight gripe was driving down to the practice area without being told we needed tokens at the reception
Loved the course.

Very Nice course !

This is a magnificent course and was in immaculate condition .The green were fast with slopes but putting surface was as good as I have ever seen .We had a brilliant day on this excellent course.
Yes , superb greens , tight fairways , lovely staff. Finest golf course in the Algarve.
Always been a great layout but was in fantastic condition as well.
Lovely as usual
Great course, my playing partner prefered it over Quinta South, and i could see why. i really enjoyed it too, although didnt strike the ball as well as playing the South, still managed 33pts though. The course was in fantastic condition, and the greens were super slick, hence the several 3-putts! Will definately look to play this course again when i return next year. Clubhouse very friendly and assertive. Would request to play off the white tee's next year to make it more of a challenge.
One of the best courses which goes unnoticed by the majority
Course has a good layout and was in excellent shape. Saturday afternoon play was very slow due to a pro-am in front: 5h 10 mins for the round was a bit too much considering that balls cannot really be lost on this layout
Fantastic course,one of my favourites on the Algarve.The staff are very welcoming,really look after you and the service is very good all round.Excellent experience once again.
Loved the course. Long & challenging in places,but also really enjoyable!
schöner Golf Course mit einigen tricky Löcher auf den back nine
Très joli parcours
Hi The golf course is very nice ,the teams too (thank you to play with men!) But I don’t understand why the mens start from yellow tees and the women from the silver tees ( normaly we have to start from the green tees as in france : men yellow and women red ) And today I don’t understand why the longest drive is mixte :it is not possible to drive as long as the men because the departures tees where not very far from !!! Is it a « macho » compétition ? Thank you for your answer Brigitte

Laranjal was ok. Very wet considering the amount of rain and this should concern the club management. Course is actually not very interesting to play although it was well manicured. Trolleys and range balls very expensive
Excellent modern course. No blondi holes and all 18 holes were very interesting. Strong recommendation

Very nice course.. clubhaus Medium
Course in good condition. Good service. We enjoyed our day. Once again, golf buggy cost @ 50 euros is too much
Tres beau golf bon accueil Tres bien entretenu
Everything ís goodonQuinta do Lago Golf courses.
Jean-Francois Bibeau 2018-10-23
We loved our golf expérience
Nice golf but not very original!
The course was in great condition. Play was very slow which detracted from our overall enjoyment.
Superb course and in fantastic condition
Mr Bill holmes2018-10-14
Lovely course as always, but they are trying to get too many people on, and some of them are very slow. The sixth tee is always bad, but there were three four balls waiting to play when we arrived, We did not play a single shot without waiting. Won't go there again in high season,
Très beau parcours, très varié et intéressant Seul point négatif, trop de monde qui travaille sur le parcours et qui dérange les joueurs, comme sur le trou 5 où 5 machine tournaient et be s’arretaient lorsque nous avons joué. Au trou 8, 2 ouvriers travaillaient autour des bunkers qui étaient remplis d’herbe coupée, sans respecter les joueurs . Je comprends que les ouvriers doivent faire leur travaille, mais au prix de 160€, sans offre pour la voiturette, cela ne paraît inacceptable
Again golf course was excellent and we really enjoyed. We did start early and mowers we a little noisy for the first few holes. Again pick up and collection were on time.
A real favourite amoung our group. Course was in great condition. Big disappointment with the dressing rooms. Temporary building still in use. No space and a terrible smell of urine. Not acceptable.
Enjoyable golf course but course packed which meant very slow back nine. Waiting on every tee box and on the greens. Either not enough time between slots or just too many golfers of different levels on the course
What a beautiful course! Tee boxes, fairways and greens all immaculate, 19 hole also has excellent service with a smile. Downside was as per reviews, 10 minutes late on tee off and playing behind a competition!!!! It would be a shame if this course is spoilt because of slow play, I thought the reviews would just be serial complainers but alas I have to agree with them....
Excellent course, a tough challenge
Lovely course, exceptionally busy though which caused very slow play. Long day
Perfect course with spectacular holes.
Paulo Rodrigues 2018-07-30
Enjoyed the course and it was in good condition. Path ways could be better between the holes
OK however I was going to be put out as a single as it was I managed to get myself hooked up with another 2 - Ball
Mr IAN Hartis2018-07-27
Beautiful course in excellent condition
Play too slow but good golf course
Great course, one of the best
Great course great condition very enjoyable.
Olivier van Wulfften Palthe2018-06-15
Course in excellent condition
Philip Halpenny 2018-05-21
Most "playable" course on our tour though, as a member, I'm probably biased. Some of our group thought the greens too "tricked up". Also, parallel fairways (11, 12, 13) considered somewhat dangerous. I still think it's the best
Everything went perfect. Great course
Stewart Eden 2018-05-14
Laranjal was in excellent condition and we all very much enjoyed the course. However we thought that the staff were rather unfriendly compared with other courses we have visited and played. We were told by the Course Marshall that we "had to hurry up" when both our group and the group in front were being held up on every hole. The buggy system was showing that we were "4 minutes behind the pace" after the 9th and by the 18th this was down to 2 minutes.
Fun layout, greens could probably be the toughest on the Algarve course. Short course, great driving range, not worth € 145.
Very good, not quite as dramatic as some in the area, but a good layout in great condition (even with top dressed greens). Customer service was excellent.
Lovely course, very well maintained. Enjoyed our round despite it being windy with some heavy showers.
Course excellent but desperately slow. We teed off on 7th 2 hours 20 mins after starting! At least the club apologised and gave us a free buggy for Quinta North
Very good condition but a bit expensive especially the extra €50 for a buggy and €7 for practice balls
Wonderful golf course, great condition. Changing facilities could be bigger
Course was in fantastic condition. All staff were very friendly. Will definitely be back.
Laranjal was a good experience. Great course.. it was slow play but probably due to the fact there was heavy rain all morning. We would certainly return.
Considering the recent awful weather, we found all the courses we played to be in a very good condition And enjoyable to play.
The course was in a very good condition. A coutse you should play serveral times to know where to place your strokes. Friendly staff!
nice course, even after a miss hit you will find your Ball , mostly ???? Perfect greens and fairways, easy to walk
Looked after very well and will return in the future
Beautiful course always a pleasure to play there
Laranjal is a beautifully presented golf course, the staff were friendly and very helpful. Most enjoyable experience.
Layout of the course is good. Fairways hard with only a little gras on it. Not the best conditions to play.
Toilet and shower facilities are not in keeping with the standard of the course.
What a golf course !! top class. Very good condition and a joy to play. Great staff and food. We shall be back.
Fantastic course and great staff
Wilson Pitt 2017-11-11
Great golf course extremely difficult greens,would probably be more suited to low-mid handicap players enjoyed it though.
Excellent, enjoyed by all our group from the 1 handicapper to the 19 handicapper in our group, a real must play
This has always been one of my favourite courses for quality and appearance. This year however looked a very tired and worn course. Did not have the usual wow factor.
Wonderful course right up with the very best I’ve played will definitely return
Excellent service but greens heavily pitch marked
nice golf course and we like to Play them. also very busy we Need nearly 4h 45 min to finish the course
The course was fine but we did not get to complete our round as light was fading. for 16 hole it took 5 hours 30 minutes which is really poor and we relayed this to course staff. They should not take bookings that do not allow groups to complete the round and this spoiled our experience.
Absolutely magnificent condition. Good holes, everything visible, great course. Only bad thing was that when when we came off the ninth green there was a competition starting on 10th tee and we had to wait on 5 groups of 4 to tee off. - The starter said we had played the front 9 too quick? Rated this 1st
Staff excellent, facilities excellent , course in excellent condition
Excellent course, great greens.
Erich Renz 2017-09-26
Traumplatz in sehr gutem Zustand und ganz wenige Spieler an diesem Tag, super
very nice course - staff very friendly and helpful
Not a bad course, but not quite in the same league as Quinta do Lago North or South.
Enjoyed playing a course it is possible to walk around. 16th is a silly hole without sat nav, avoiding the water is pure guesswork.
Very good condition ,staff and shuttle worked extremely well
Everything was just fine
16th is hard, beautiful course. Staff friendly and helpful. Easy to find.
Excellent course, club house not very big also practice facilities not easily accessed.
Laranjal is a good holiday golf course, the continuing inability to provide a proper sized golf club house is incredibly disappointing and I think we will probably leave it off our annual rota going forward.
Well maintained course which we rated as good rather than excellent
Kevin Steele 2017-06-04
the cost of a buggy is very high in the extreme, course in great condition
Excellent golf course, very well manicured and very challenging
Nothing at all wrong with it. Very nice course, but is being ''bigged up'' as best in the Algarve, which for my money it's not. VdL and QdL better.
Excellent day and in very good condition.
The oranges are great. Impeccable maintenance.
The course was in excellent condition with fast greens, the clubhouse there is very small and the buggies are too expensive but overall a good experience.
Laranjal is always in mint condition and it is a fantastic experience, but it has priced itself out of commom sense range. The green fee level is unacceptable, and I will probably not play it again.
Excellent. Only buggy fee of € 55 very steep.
Courses are very expensive to play, poor value for the money. *** TeeTimes reply: This golf course is world class
many, many sand obstacles, to much sand in the bunkers, well - defined and fast greens, narrow fairways, abundance trees. My experience: It is hard to play, not recommendable for golfers wit a higher handicap
The course was immaculate and staff very helpful. You have to keep to time which can be a little stressful but understandable
Très beau parcours et les gens très sympathiques
Very friendly and remains one of our favourites
great course, probably more enjoyable to walk than buggy
The best course I've played in Portugal. Excellent.
Beautiful and challenging course. One of the best in the Algarve
Liked the course especially the greens,fairways & layout very good.Getting to the course using Sat.Nav was down a very winding narrow & poorly maintained road,this was the only negative.
Laranjal was again an excellent course and in excellent condition. A favourite in our group?
Unfortunately there were slow players, so it took us 5 hours, but the course itself was perfect
Pedro Gonçalo Bandeira Fernandes2016-10-23
Fantástico campo, muito bem cuidado e os greens rápidos e constantes.
Ralph Keyes 2016-10-19
Good course but pace of play very slow
First class experience
Kevin Miller 2016-09-20
enjoyed the new layout course was in good condition
Fantastic golf course could not fault anything with it.
Franco Di Fonzo 2016-07-06
Best green of Algarve.
the clubhouse facilities were not of the same standard of QdL
Good holiday course, chance to score, lightening greens. Poor clubhouse, cant believe they still don't have a proper clubhouse! We didn't stay for food and drink as that area isn't great either.
Really loved this course. Greens are fantastic and would highly recommend this. It is a great course to start the week with as it is not too demanding and reward is definitely there.
Good condition, fast greens.
Balz Riesterer 2016-05-24
Very nice reception and the course in very good condition of maintenace
Great course will play again and excellent facilities
Kevin Steele 2016-05-22
Great course, pity we were rained off after 13 holes.
Course excellent. Gobsmacked that buggies were in short supply and not available at 1.30..Did not know we had to book as did not on other courses...but staff pulled out all the stops and got 4 as people completed their round...staff were very good in helping. Very difficult as buggies 'disabled' if we left a path ..and did not make a pleasant experience.or poor shower facility..only 2 !!!!!! and we wet and cold....... As downpours came and we were rained off after 9 holes,...staff very good gave us a voucher for a 9 holes return...this will bring us back again for 18....
Robert Moore 2016-05-16
Small Club house with very small changing area.
Very good course, more difficult than Vale da Lobo or Quinta South. Club House and Bar Area also much smaller
amr el cherif2016-03-21
easy going course
Course in fantastic condition Staff only too pleased to help very welcoming a great experience
Thelma had organised everything excellently from the transfers to and from the airport and the tee times booked at the courses suited our needs perfectly.
We have played this before and this is one of our favourite courses . Staff very friendly
Not the best customer service but a very nice golf course. Unfortunately my round took almost 5 hours
service in the golf shop very good and kind. Service in the restaurant bad!
Adrian Thorogood 2015-11-02
2nd best course.
Very good, all our group really enjoyed this course as it was playable for all abilities and testing enough for the scratch players.
Adrian Fraser Jones2015-10-26
A very nice golf course but a very disappointing clubhouse and facilities. Very small and plain
excellent pleasure to play
it rained so only got to play 6 holes .
Lovely course and in good order. Voted best of the four courses by whole group.
