About this course

Location: Algarve
Yards: 6800
Par: 72
Slope: 70.5
Type: Championship

The Algarve in Portugal is a great place for a holiday. The weather is warm in the summer and remains pleasant in the winter and this makes it a perfect destination for golf lovers. There is a wide selection of golf courses to choose from, many of which are top quality, championship courses and one which certainly fits into this bracket, is San Lorenzo Golf Course.

Location

This golf course can be found in Quinta do Lago and is one of the most exclusive golf courses in the region. It is available to those staying as guests of Dona Filipa Hotel and Amarante Formosa Park hotel. Otherwise, you must be a member if you want to play. It may seem like a bold statement but it is worth booking a stay at one of the two hotels, just to play the golf course. It really is that good.

San Lorenzo Golf Course is designed by Joe Lee and opened for play in 1988. The course winds its way across gently undulating pine woodland and once on the par three, 5th hole, things really begin to open up. The views down to the beach and across the ocean are fantastic. However, do not allow yourself to be caught up in the beautiful scenery, as although this is a short par three, the wind coming off the Atlantic makes club selection crucial. The 16th is a further example of a great par three hole, with a slightly elevated green, which slopes down towards the front edge. You really need to be aiming for the top side of the green or face seeing your ball rolling down to the fringe.

Course

There are some brilliant par four holes at San Lorenzo with the pick being the 6th, 12th and 17th holes. The 6th features a big dogleg left and runs alongside the Atlantic. You will be tempted to try and cut the corner, which is possible but play close attention to the wind and the trouble which lies in wait down the right side. The 12th hole has a very narrow fairway and with a bunker on the right side, in addition to those surrounding the green, it is one of the toughest holes on the course. The 17th hole runs alongside a lake, which is present all the way to the green, so anything less than an accurate drive off the tee, could see you in the drink.

The par five 10th hole is a real tester, as it requires a drive over two lakes and this needs 100% concentration because with bunkers either side of the green. Even the longest hitters can struggle on this hole.

The layout of San Lorenzo Golf Course is superb and the scenery is fantastic. The course requires plenty of thought to score low but at the same time, presents a very enjoyable challenge, one which golfers of all abilities will enjoy. San Lorenzo has been named as one of the Top 15 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe by Golf World and it is easy to see why. This course is regarded as a must play when in the Algarve.

"1 - 1st Class Holiday"

As with previous years our week's golfing holiday in Spain went without a hitch. Accommodation at Mar Menor Residents was clean well equipped and closed to the hotel facilities. Transport, including from and to Alicante Airport, was on time and comfortable. Thanks again to Maria and Jeff for their efforts
