Quinta do Lago North Golf CourseThe course has two architects. The American WILLIAM MITCHELL designed holes 1 to 5 and 15 to 18 in 1974. These holes (as with the other course) share a unique character. The terrain is superb and typical of the area, sandy and littered with umbrella pines trees. In the spring, the rough is covered with a blanket of wild flowers, heather and gorse.
The Fairways and tees are covered with Bermuda hybrid with a cool season mixture of grasses, which provides year-round, top quality swards. The greens are sown with Creeping Bentgrass Penncross, giving a fast, true putting surface, and which provide good all-year round putting surfaces. The bunkering is incomparable, both on the fairways and surrounding the greens and gives the course an advantage over many of similar quality and design.

This course has four great Par 5 holes requiring power and accuracy to play them well, also providing superb views. The Par 3 holes are all influenced by the wind, hole 14 is outstanding. The Par 4´s are all doglegs except for holes 10 and 13. Precision driving is vital to set up the chance of a low score. Lakes on holes 12 and 18 claim many victims. The course is an anti-clockwise loop and favours that can draw the ball.

These holes have more cross falls on the fairways than the other layouts and all the Par 4 and 5 holes are
doglegs, demanding precise tee shots, to set up straightforward approaches. Like the “Quinta do Lago South”
course, it is a favours the players who can draw the ball.

Holes 6 to 14 were designed by JOSEPH LEE with the collaboration of ROCKY ROQUEMORE, both from the USA, and opened in 1989. All the famous male and female players who have experienced this course, including “Ryder Cup” and “Curtis Cup” team members, have been euphoric in their praise for this course, which will soon take its place among the great European layouts. Prime Hole of Quinta do Lago North – 12.

Quinta do Lago also offers the South Course, both our courses provide different tests for players and requires different skills of players of all ability levels.
