For this course situated on the Quinta do Lago estate, money and a bag of sticks are often not enough. The majority of start times are taken up by guests at the nearby Meridien hotel and green fee payers may find it hard to get a slot.
The course hosts the Jimmy Tarbuck Celeb and is frequently voted accolades by golfing journalists. All of which only makes it worse when you get knocked back for a start time. Considering the very reasonable rate for guests it may be worth treating yourself to a night at the hotel.
Set on the Quinta do Lago estate with its mature woodlands of umbrella pines and the attractive lakes from which it takes its name. This is an area which is deservedly respected for the quality of its environment. The course dates from 1988 and was the inspiration of J. Lee and W. Roquemore. 6238m. and par 72.
