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.

Good course again. 10 min intervals on tee would be better
News - Quinta do Lago South re open
In regards to the closure of Quinta do Lago South Course, we would like to inform all our guests that due to the unexpected torrencial rain last week, works will be delayed on this golf course and therefore, they are forced to postpond the reopening of the Quinta do Lago South golf course. Due to these circunstances, Quinta South will reopen now on the 9th of January 2021. All the reservations will be moved to Quinta North and Laranjal, and you will be contacted by our reservations team to be informed of the change.
This was my second time playing Quinta South. Our group of 10 players all agreed that this was the most disappointing course of the four courses we played on this trip. There were a lot of approaches to greens with poorly patched of turf surrounding them, which made it difficult around the greens if you were slightly long or short and generally looked scruffy, especially given the green fees. The course is a true challenge as a championship course should be. Unfortunately there was a major problem with mosquitoes, something I’ve never experienced in the Algarve before! Clubhouse, practice facilities and buggies etc are consummate with the fees charged.
Heavy rain and wind.
Great golf course, but some major management problems. The fee should have included a golf cart, but due to overbooking there were no more carts available (or only with a delay of 45 min, not good when departure tie is at 14h00). My mother who was with me had to walk the course with a pull-trolley at age of 81 (they should at least have electrical trolleys available). One piece of advice, if the club sees that the course is fully booked they should introduce a policy that players below age 40, should walk the course, so to have sufficient carts available for the elderly players. It's a bit dismal to see young players driving a cart on a golf course, when elderly players have to walk it!!!!!! I'm 54 and still carry my bag.
Course & facility's were great but no sign of any course rangers that day. Round took over 5:30 hours.
Excellent course and facility, well worth a visit. Pace of play is very slow and close to 5 hours for a round.
The condition of the course was very disappointing with a lot of pitch marks and bare areas around the greens which were also very slow. We have played here before and it has always been very good but based on this experience it’s unlikely we would book here again, particularly when it’s one of the more expensive courses.
We played the Laranjal today because of a mix up the South course was a shotgun start but the man doing tee times got us transport for free to the Laranjal and he phoned ahead.The course was amazing me and my son really enjoyed it staff were very helpful.
Excellent only issue was being slow played really bad throughout the 18 holes. But the course and staff were excellent
Thought the course would be better for the price
Good course but unfortunately far too slow
