    THE GOLF COURSES

    San Lorenzo Golf Club     

    San Lorenzo Golf Course was designed by the American golf architect Joseph Lee and the beautiful Bermuda grass fairways provide perfect playing conditions. For the 25th year in a row, the golf course has been named one of the Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe. The ranking, awarded by the industry leading Golf World Magazine, further cements San Lorenzo’s position at the very pinnacle of European golf.

    The course was opened in 1988 and takes advantage of wonderful topography on the Quinta do Lago estate, winding its way gently over undulating pine woodland. The 18 holes lie in the unspoilt south east corner of Quinta do Lago, bordering the Ria Formosa estuary and the salt water lagoons. The San Lorenzo Golf Course is laid out in a figure of eight and at the heart lies the San Lorenzo Clubhouse with a golf pro shop; comfortable changing facilities and a welcoming bar and restaurant.

    Pinheiros Altos Golf Club

    Pinheiros Altos Golf Resort is located in the heart the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, a nationally protected area known for its outstanding splendour. Pinheiros Altos holds the prime position in Quinta do Lago, and holds the most prestigious location in the ‘Golden Triangle’ (Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura). The Pinheiros Altos golf course was designed with one simple aim in mind; to create the perfect environment for those with a love of the Algarve and a passion for golf.

    The Pinheiros Altos Golf Resort features a 27 holes championship golf course, a spectacular clubhouse with bar, a restaurant, luxurious members lounge, the state of the art Pinheiros Altos Golf Academy and a Pro Shop offering a range of the most prestigious brands in the game of golf.

    The two rounds that we will play for our Portugal Golf week at Pinheiros Altos provide a wonderful compliment to the three rounds that we will play at San Lorenzo.
