Quinta da Ria Golf Course

Quinta da Ria Golf Course was the first of two 18-hole golf courses in a spectacular location on the coast of the eastern Algarve, known locally as 'Sotavento'. Quinta da Ria, situated in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, has already been described by experienced golfers as the most breathtaking golf course in the Region. In fact, there will be no houses, or villas, or apartments to distract you from your game: just you and a breathtaking nature. A nice open golf course, very thick rough, lower edges bunkers and some water coming in to play on some holes.

Excellent course

David Parsons 2021-10-17
I was paired up with another player who was good company and as we were playing the beautiful Quinta da Ria course, it was a very enjoyable morning. The course was in great condition, especially the greens. Only slight issue was a noisy spinning class at the Robinson complex as we played the 18th.

Nick Fry 2021-10-15
Could have done with course Marshall’s to increase speed of play

Chris Barr 2021-10-12
Excellent course for a very enjoyable days golf. Scenic, well managed and not too challenging, just how my wife and I like it, as we both play off 22.

Keith Carruthers 2021-10-11
Quinta da Ria was in vil ery good condition, greens and fairways are immaculate. Service provide was very efficient and polite . Our tee off was early and even as mixed foursomes we were round in under 4 hrs. Overall a good golfing experience

Philip Mc Auley 2021-10-08

From booking to playing everything went smoothly. The corse was in excellent condition and although busy playing ran smoothly. A very enjoyable experience.

M. MICHEL GROSSE 2021-09-11
Toujours un très beau parcours sauf malheureusement les Green beaucoup trop feutrés

Gordon Fleming 2021-06-09
Sorry, great society and not your fault but I was disappointed we played Quinta da Cema and not Ria as we were meant to

Marion Brosens 2021-04-21
Great course with wonderful views. Course condition is excellent.

Bruno De Giuluo 2020-12-27
Beatiful course. The last 12 holes are just great. Green not easy with slopes

Simon Richardson 2019-12-08
Great course, some good hole layouts using water and hazard features. Stunning coastline views. Friendly and helpful course, clubhouse and restaurant staff.

Michael Malone 2019-09-24
Great

Kummer Marcel 2019-04-25
Very nice course with beautyful sea view. Friendly and helpful accounting and relaxed german flight partner from the Robinson Club in the area.

Fran Mackey 2019-04-17
This is a really beautiful course and was in great condition. The greens were excellent. Beautiful holes with the sea as a back drop. The group highly rate this course.

Nick Fry 2019-03-23
Good course - felt the greens were too long and woolly today

Farias 2018-10-02
Excellent parcours de golf grande qualité

Michael Sutton 2018-09-30
A beautiful course that we always enjoy!

glenn weston 2018-09-16
great course in great condition the best we played all week

steve ingman 2018-05-27
Superb quality golf course. Well laid out course with views and backdrops everywhere. Staff were organised with buggy and clubs waiting and the clubhouse food is excellent. Third visit to Ria and back to play Cima later in the year.

Paul Hopper 2018-05-24
Really nice course with stunning views throughout the round. Tees, greens and fairways all in excellent condition and good value for money. Was a bit slow (just under 5 hours for two ball in buggy) but as I mentioned it gave us time to take in the vistas. Club house okay but didn’t try the food

C.J. Vloon 2018-05-14
Nice and in a good shape. Near the ocean.

Bèr Raemaekers 2018-05-12
Verry nice course...nice people verry nice maintenance. Top greens.....a litle windy today. 2e 9 are more interesting.

Penelope Cooke 2021-01-25
Very enjoyable

Eric Peyer 2020-12-15
Good service at reception. Overall good playing conditions, but greens too slow, not comparable to La Quinta courses. Pace of play not satisfactory, because we were stuck behind a group of flights that played a tournament. Would play again.

Erhard Storoschenko 2020-02-09
A wonderful course in excellent state

David Patterson 2019-11-12
This is probably the most scenic course that I have played. It is a tough course and with the wind blowing and the plentiful water hazards provided a robust test for our party. Everyone loved the challenge and the setting

Michael Ruijs 2019-11-10
Beautiful,

Ciara Boylan 2019-10-21
We booked 2 games however when we visited the golf course for booking for Quinta de Cima on 14th Oct the golf course didn't have any details of the booking. Thankfully they managed to find us a space and we teed off on the 10th Hole. When we went to play Quinta de Ria on 16th we went out after a 4ball from Germany who were very slow. It would have been an advantage to have a ranger out checking for slow play.

Nick Fry 2019-10-20
Very good. Few bare areas but generally the course was in good condition

phil townsend 2019-10-18
Lovely course but not in its usual immaculate condition

Mike Dobson 2019-10-04
Course is in fairly good condition but the facilities remain unfinished. Buggies are expensive.

Leslie Lawrence 2019-09-22
Excellent t boxes some greens a bit bare .All buggies should carry sand containers

glenn weston 2019-09-14
Lovely course great condition

JAMES NEEDHAM 2019-09-07
Really good test of golf particularly the back nine. The course was in good condition considering it was at the end of summer with the greens in excellent condition. Practice facilities were excellent.

Denis Earley 2019-09-04
Excellent golf course so much so we changed from cima to ria for tomorrow and the staff have been very accommodating in allowing us to do so. Also the taxi company will pick us up at the hotel at earlier time.

Niall McGuigan 2019-08-11
Fairways in poor condition Greens good

David Swift 2019-07-09
The course is nice, lovely views of the sea and some really nice holes with water features. However if you put your ball off the fairway, it’s impossible to find. I’ve never seen rough like it. Completely wild. I lost a lot of balls. Pity too the four ball on the back nine kept me waiting for ages on every single hole.

Vandewiele Katelijn 2019-05-27
perfect maintained golfcourse with magnificent sea vieuws ' we've enjoyed playing !

Bèr Raemaekers 2019-05-23
Vorig jaar ook op deze baan gespeeld. Nu upgrade in clubgebouw baanonderhoud. Vriendelijkheid van alle medewerkers. Kortom aanrader... Mooie holes aan zee prachtige vergezichten. Uitdagende holes Aanrader in deze omgeving.

Paul Haran 2019-05-22
Great course - great staff. Pity the club house is so far from the bag drop and the caddy master

Craig Frame? 2019-05-21
Excellent golf course, very good condition, championship layout, greens were a little bit slow, lovely clubhouse

Greg Reynolds 2019-05-10
Although fairly open found the course more suited to the bigger hitter. But still a lovely course

A.P. Kusters 2019-04-30
Excellent course and beautiful surroundings.

Darren Gatward 2019-04-29
Course was in very good condition, although the greens were a little slow. Pace of play was slow at 4 hours & 50 minutes.

Julian Pallister 2019-04-28
Rather slow at times but course in excellent condition

KYHENG 2019-04-26
Nice golf course.

David Symons 2019-04-19
Nice welcome and very good course. Again, It would have been nice to be able to hire an electric walking trolley

Timo Kahila 2019-04-16
Lovely course, will come back Skip the fee for the teolleys, the green fee is high enough.

Derek Mastaglio 2019-04-11
A well groomed course; excellent fairways and greens. First rate clubhouse. Generally an outstanding experience.

Richard Moss 2019-02-23
Very busy and expensive

Tony Calnan 2019-02-07
Course was in great condition. Very well maintained. Some very tight holes so not easy to score on. Very enjoyable.

Johan Passchier 2019-01-02
Wow! What a beautifull golfcourse it is. Nice vieuws over the sea and wonderfull fairways and fastgreens. Also for a reasonable price! Why not doing something about the 1,5 kilometer of dirtroad to this wonderfull place? The road is so bad that you almost do not wanna go there with a rentalcar.

Joey Lee 2018-12-29
Great course. Friendly patient staff. Good rental golf set. Walked 18-holes. Narrow course with water hazards. Marshalls always around to check pace of play. We were 4-ball and those 2-ball behind keep catching up and we had to let 2 groups pass so as we can enjoy our game in a new unfamiliar course. Buggies and golfers should be provided with sand canisters to patch up divots so the fairways can be better maintained. Similar to the putting green ball marks should be repaired to allow others a better golfing experience. Thanks for the great time.

Joey Lee 2018-12-29
Golf Course was very patient as they waited till late for us to return as it turns dark by 4:45pm on December we played through the dark the last 2-holes which took some time looking for our ball. TM RBZ rental set was in good condition and was forgiving. Course was busy and Marshalls were around to make sure of timing. Great ocean views on the last few holes. Felt that Club should provide sand canisters on buggy to repair divot on course(too many patches and some times the ball lands in one) and golfers do not repair ball marks on green. Golf course may have to consider as these may make upkeeping easier and happier golfing experience.

Billy Freeland 2018-11-18
Excellent Course Good Service Very enjoyable

John Davies 2018-11-09
Great course, well maintained.

Pat Smith 2018-10-29
Because there were lots of fourballs squeezed in the starter offered us the chance of swapping to Quinta da Cima course as it was not as busy. However, he let 3x2 balls out with little time inbetween so we did feel squeezed which spoiled the enjoyment a bit.

Gordon Dron 2018-10-21
Excellent course . Well designed . Only disappointment was the club house renovation was not complete

Bob Inglis 2018-10-19
Beautiful Course and a test.

Monica Young 2018-10-15
Ok

Roderik 2018-10-15
Very nice course, only the clubhouse in renovation and there was a lot of water on the course

Michael Dobson 2018-10-15
Buggies very expensive 20 to 25 Euro should be the maximum in line with the majority of courses in UK.

Neil Wendel-Jones 2018-10-14
Excellent, we enjoyed very much

Christian Hoornaert 2018-10-14
The weather was very bad, the club house in rebuilding, but we enjoyed

Diane Scholes 2018-09-20
Lovely course. Was very wet under foot as heavily watered due to hot weather although playing later not something I would have liked in this heat. 8am start was good

Irma Siegers 2018-09-19
Perfect!!

Hoang Hang 2018-07-29
Very nice and interesting golf course ! Good green keepers !

aidan logan 2018-07-26
Very enjoyable rented club's dropped to and picked up from the course would be preferable

Steve 2018-07-18
Stunning views from an excellent and (especially in the wind) challenging golf course made for a truly memorable experience...I'll be back!

Michael Bumstead 2018-07-05
Too short notice of club house closure

Mark Hughes 2018-05-26
Course was excellent condition. It was closed when we arrived due to the storm, but as soon as it cleared the starter, got everyone away quickly, allowing us to start on the tenth, so no delays in play.

Tom Hughes 2018-05-05
Excellent course, in good condition, with splendid views to enhance the experience.

Terri Wills 2018-05-02
Lovely golf course, but very busy and slow at times. We heard a comment that gave us the impression that they used to have course marshalls to keep players moving but not now. We had an issue where we had booked our golf through you - no problem. But then we booked a buggy separately through you - i had an email confirming the buggy and payment to you for it. However, Quinta da Ria had no record of it and had to ring you on the day to confirm.. Regards, Terri Wills

Janet Warburton 2018-04-25
A lovely well maintained golf course.

Stuart Johnston 2018-04-19
Quinta Da Ria is magnificent in every way. Tees, fairways and greens immaculate. Great service in the clubhouse with great food at reasonable prices.A fantastic test of golf and a must play for everybody. I cannot recommend it highly enough.. a great deal from Jorge at teetimespt.

SASSARD - MARIE 2018-04-06
Always was ok, but it was noisy because of the blowing machine during the course

Jerry Crowley 2018-03-11
Course was in very good condition, greens were excellent.?

Ian Hunt 2018-03-11
Fabulous golf course, lovely testing layout but easily walked. Service in the clubhouse excellent and very good food. Best. breakfast of the week.

Nick Fry 2018-03-07
Nice course - good condition. Only issue being the greens were very variable in respect of pace. Would play again

Gert Jacobs 2018-03-04
Clubhouse good service, course and greens in good condition, the structure of the holes don't differ much.

Klaus-Dieter Feldmann 2018-02-26
GOLF COURSE IN VERY GOOD CONDITIONS FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR IF COMPARE WITH QUINTA DO LAGO. GREEN FAIRWAYS, WITHOUT DRY AREAS. FRIENDLY STAFF AND WELCOME. VERY RECOMMENDABLE.

Lenz 2017-12-22
Very satisfied with everything!!

phil townsend 2017-12-20
Fabulous well maintained and greens were superb

Gill Travis 2017-11-19
The course was excellent with very good greens. However playing behind a very slow 4 ball was not good. No marshalling was evident but when I complained in the clubhouse halfway round, the staff did come out & solve the problem (after 3 goes at it) I'm afraid handicap certificates & golfing competence/etiquette needs to be adhered to even on holiday. We did enjoy the course & will go back.

christopher curnin 2017-10-22
average golf course, good but slow greens. Quite scruffy in places. water on buggies was nice.

Michael Sutton 2017-10-18
The usual impeccably maintained course we love!

Martin Gallagher 2017-10-17
Both Da Ria and De Cima are well maintained and enjoyable

Michael Bryan 2017-10-16
A scenic course in reasonable condition. Again no ranger and over 4 hours 30 minutes as a result of groups failing to keep pace.

Justin Parker-Hann 2017-10-15
Great course in excellent condition

Mr Stephen Macguffie 2017-10-15
Excellent

Sidney Stuart 2017-10-13
reception staff welcoming bar outside eating areas clean and comfortable food excellent course in good condition considering lack of rain 6th visit will return soon

Christopher DREW 2017-10-12
Staff were good,but course not very good condition, greens I thought were slow, took 4 hours 30minutes to get round, no evidence of any course marshals.

Malcolm Stuart Russell 2017-10-04
Good course in a nice setting. Also good food and service.

Malachy Coleman 2017-10-01
excellent

Liz Scully 2017-09-23
Great course in good condition

Gary Lynes 2017-09-22
As above

stephen Allan 2017-07-22
From the moment we arrived at the course all the staff were friendly and professional. Course was in magnificent condition.

pat wallace 2017-07-08
Excellent

Doug Smith 2017-06-10
What a beautiful place to play golf. The key today were the greens, which looked quick but played quite slow. The course was in tip top condition with nice fairways and excellent teeing grounds. Don't miss this course.

John Wheatley 2017-05-29
Lovely course with fantastic views on the back nine. Loved it!

Ken Mitchell 2017-04-19
We were rushed on to the first tee despite being there in good time. Appeared overbooked. Course otherwise in good order.

Fritz Reich 2017-04-11
Very nice and challenging golf course. well kept

Paul Christiansen 2017-04-01
Botj Ria and Cima are excellent courses, good lay out, nice scenery and everything, except for the greens. They are now totally overgrown with this weed that I do not know the English word for, but it is quite common. They will have to close the courses for a period of time to get rid of it and that they probably cannot afford. Too bad though, because that would have made the courses fantastic. My guess is that to week end players from Germany, it makes no difference.

Alan Seery 2017-03-27
Really enjoyed this course. Good test of golf and fair. They could do with a course ranger to keep groups moving, we were a two ball behind a four ball for 9 holes who were very slow - the two men in that group could only hit the ball 50 yards.

ERNEST ROBINSON 2017-02-02
Very good course in excellent condition. The speed of the greens was just right.

COLIN FISH 2016-10-31
great course bit tougher but everyone enjoyed it, food we had after was very good staff very polite.

Ian Humphries 2016-10-16
Quinta Da Ria is a very pleasant Golf Course, but the condition of it leaves me feeling that I have payed a lot of money for a sub standard experience.

Gary Lynes 2016-10-07
Very good course

Michael Sutton 2016-09-20
A stunningly manicured course with tee boxes better than some greens I've played on!

Frank Blair 2016-08-26
sTAFF WELCOMING AND STARTED US AT THE 10TH TO AVOID CONJESTION AT THE 1ST DUE TO A LOCAL COMPETITION. COMPLETED THE FIRST 9 HOLES IN RECORD TIME BUT WE HIT THE BUFFER WHEN WE CAUGHT UP WITH THE TAIL END OF THE COMPETITION PLAYERS. SECOND 9 TOOK OVER 2 AND A HALF HOURS, STAFF DID COME OUT TO APOLOGISE FOR THE HOLD UP OF PLAY WHICH WAS A NICE TOUCH.

Michael Bumstead 2016-07-22
Excellent

Keith Walker 2016-06-06
Lovely course in superb condition.

David Brookes 2016-05-31
Very good -- outstanding views

elizabeth stewart 2016-05-06
Excellent course and staff very friendly especially the bar / waitress

Russ Brittain 2016-05-02
There were far too many people on this course so waited on virtually every shot and the round lasted over 5 hours, the course was not in good condition probably due to all the traffic it's been receiving, some of the fringes on the greens didn't have any grass. Really disappointed with this course and would not rush back to play it.

Paddy Duffy 2016-03-15
Quinta da Ria was good and a very enjoyable day for our first day's golf on this short trip.

Colin Smith 2016-03-04
This is the first time we have played this course (although we have previously played Quinta da Cima). A tough challenge, but in great condition. The clubhouse is a little small, but the service is great. Good value for money.

Alan Potts 2016-02-08
Wonderful coastal course. Scenic

Alan Crooks 2016-02-08
Not quiet as good condition as Cima

Julian Pallister 2015-10-21
SLOW BEHIND 4 GERMAN GOLFERS WHO WERE ASKED TO LET US THROUGH BUT WOULD NOT. THEY WERE LOSING GROUND ON THOSE IN FRONT OF THEM UP TO 4 HOLES!

Brian Buckeridge 2015-10-16
preferred lies as course had been sanded and hollow tined. not as good as it was in 2014. friendly staff and good food after golf.

Chez Carlos Golf Society 2012-09-03
It has been been nearly three years ago since the Algarve Golf Society has played Quinta Da Ria. A course designed by the famous golf architect Rocky Roquemore famed for such classics as San Lorenzo, Quinta Da Lago (North) & Vale Do Lobo Royal. His trademarks are all here on Ria; open fairways, abundant bunkers and large contoured rolling greens. It is easy on foot and a delight on the eye with no on course construction and the back nine holes tracking the outer boundary with fabulous coastal views giving way to sweet smelling orange groves. The course was in fine form though the greens would have benefitted from a good cut and roll. The centrally located clubhouse with a large open terrace area is great place to meet for pre and post game drinks. It also doubles up as a clubhouse for its sister course Quinta Da Cima which is to its side - another one well worth a visit and shall be on our calendar very soon. Afterwards it was another turn from our 'Experience' series with a visit to a local portuguese cafe / restaurant on the seafront at Olhão. Fresh prawns and crabs is the speciality here at this important fishing port city. Olhão takes his name from a big natural water fountain, an "eye of water", like the locals call it (Olhão means Big Eye). The Olhaneses (inhabitants of Olhão) are more notorious for the trip to Brazil, in a small fishing boat (60-65 ft) with 17 fisherman, that, without maps or any guiding tools (but the stars), went to warn King John VI, who was exiled in that country, that the French had been defeated and banished from Portugal. Our thanks to Eve Koch for the co-ordination of another great 'Experience'. Watch out for the next one mid- august this time coinciding with the sardine festival in Portimao.
