Designed by American golf course architect, Joseph Lee and opened in 1988, San Lorenzo occupies an exclusive and charismatic location within the prestigious Quinta do Lago Resort and Ria Formosa Nature Reserve.
The course is rated among the top ten in Europe and consistently maintained to a high standard: if you can include it on your list, it should be a must to play when visiting this southern region of Portugal.
The Golf Course lingers long in the memory of all who play it – a combination of natural beauty, pristine presentation and hole after hole of challenging golf. Measuring 5,837 meters from the regular tees, the course was designed by American golf architect Joseph Lee and opened in 1988. It is considered one of the best courses in Europe and ranked in the top one hundred golf courses worldwide.
While much of the course meanders through typical Algarvian pinewoods, it also opens to stunning ocean vistas and distant mountain backdrops. A good part of the course is virtually an extension of the nature reserve of Ria Formosa Estuary with fairways that run alongside saltwater marshes and freshwater lagoons. This protected environment is the habitat of over 70 bird species, including herons, hoopoes, white storks, coots, black-winged stilts and the rare purple gallinule.
The Clubhouse offers pro-shop, lounge, bar and restaurant. A large terrace overlooks the driving range with the fairways of the first and tenth holes on either side. Instruction is available and a separate practice area is reserved for visiting professionals and their classes.
