Quinta do Lago Sul ist ein Jet-set Magnet im Nationalpark von Ria Formosa. Hier Designed by the American William Mitchell in 1974, the Quinta do Lago South course hosted eight times for the “Portuguese Open Championship” in 1976, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2001. The favourite of many tour players, this course 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. The long anti-clockwise loop favours the draw and the long hitters, but it requires a true and complete skill to score well. The front nine favours a draw, while the second favours a fade from the tee. Holes 8, 10, 15 and 18 are the most testing for the scratch player while holes 2, 3, 5, 12, 13 and 17 offer the best birdie opportunities. Signature Hole of Quinta do Lago South – 15.
