The Algarve has emerged as one of Europe’s top destinations for golf. With Faro International Airport serving numerous countries around the world, it’s very easy to reach this region of Portugal and enjoy the many activities which are available, the most popular of which is golf.
Quinta do Lago Laranjal Details
When playing golf in the Algarve, one course which should be firmly fixed on your radar is Laranjal, at Quinta do Logo. The course is part of the Quinta do Logo Golf and Resort and opened in 2009, as the newest of the current courses at the property. Designed by Jorge Santana da Silva, the fairways at Laranjal are routed through orange groves and this is where the name of the course comes from. Playing at over 7,000 yards from the back tees, this is a golf course which has been set-up with tournament golf in mind and it does not disappoint. That being said, there is a choice of tees to play from, so it is suitable to players of all abilities.
Some of the par three holes can play very tough, especially if the wind is up and some players will find themselves resorting to their five or four wood to reach the green. However, they remain enjoyable and the 11th hole is a real favourite. There is a lake on the right side of the hole and a bunker which leads down into the water, like a beach. It’s a unique design which really captures the imagination at Laranjal.
For those who love to let rip with the driver, the 5th hole is perfect. The elevated tee box is set back amongst the trees and invites you to step up and unleash your most powerful shot. Due to the position of the tee, the ball seems as though it is sailing through the air for several minutes before dropping to the fairway. Catch your tee shot right on this hole and it will give you tremendous satisfaction.
The 9th and 16th holes are the pick of the par fives and each of them feature more than one water crossing. Take a deep breath and keep your ball in play for the chance of a birdie or perhaps something even better for those with the required distance.
The one thing everyone was talking about around the course was the quality of the fairways and greens. The latter of which were in tremendous condition, playing true and very fast. There are plenty of hazards around the course in terms of sand and water, which make accurate shooting off the tee crucial for getting a low score. However, it is on the green where your scorecard will be most affected. Often large, undulating and quick, accurate approach play is crucial to giving yourself a good chance of putting in one. Anything else and you may have a tough read on your hands, leaving yourself happy to escape with a par.
Laranjal is a very well kept golf course, which is offers a good challenge to players of all abilities. Despite being the newest course at Quinta do Logo, it is fast building a reputation as being one of the best in the Algarve.
This 18 Hole championship golf course was the third of the Quinta courses to be built, a few kilometres away from the others but well worth a visit every time.
