Quinta do Lago South Golf Course, favourite of many tour players, offers the possibility to hit the greens in regulation in several ways. However, each hole has one easy route and the player who sees this, and has the skill to follow the designer's intention, and produce sub-par figures. An anti-clockwise loop, it favours the draw shot.|This course favours the long hitter, but requires the player to pick a particular route to score well. Although both anti-clockwise loops, the first nine favours a draw, while the second favours a fade from the tee. It is an enjoyable experience for players of all standards.

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.
Great services, very well organised & no problems checking in for our tee off times. Polite professional people, course & facilities were superb.
Course in excellent condition and greens excellent
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.
Fantastic course, good playing partners, great day, fabulous scenery
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.
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.
Excellent course - difficult to fault it
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 holmes2018-10-14
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. Gyi2018-10-09
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
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.
Very nice complex, very nice golf course, very nice service
Stephen Hooker 2018-08-22
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 .
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...
Danny Rawluk 2018-06-14
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.
Philip Halpenny 2018-05-21
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 Etzrodt2018-04-05
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 Crone2018-03-15
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.
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. *** TeeTimes 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 Fernandes2016-10-23
Ótimo campo. Grande visual.
First time for a few years we had played. Overall confirmed that this is a great place to golf
Very nice golf course - badly sign posted however, difficult to find
Trevor Hatton 2016-09-27
Very good. Course in very good condition. Cannot fault.
Kevin Miller 2016-09-20
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 !!
Dawn Smith 2016-06-23
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.
Balz Riesterer 2016-05-24
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 cherif2016-03-21
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.
Adrian Thorogood 2015-11-02
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 Society2012-09-10
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. Best Gross – (Par 72) 1st: Martin Firth 75 2nd: Derek Hughes 81 Net Stableford 1st: Martin Lewis 37pts (19+18) 2nd: Eve Koch 35pts (18+17) 3rd: Paul Jackson 35pts (20+15) 4th: Dave Willis 34pts (17+17) Best Aggregate: 1st: Peter Vaughan, Paul Jackson, Paul Beevers, Warren Griffiths: 128pts Longest Drive: Paul Beevers Nearest the Pin: 4th: Steve Whipps 7th: Ladies: Annie Densham. Gents: Martin Lewis 11th: Graham Newman 15th: Warren Griffiths
Chez Carlos Golf Society Tournament @ Quinta Do Lago South2011-09-06
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.
