Overview
More
Voted Best Golf Course at the Portuguese 2011 Travel Awards, Laranjal opened in 2009 as the newest course in Quinta do Lago. Originally an orange grove, this beautiful par 72 championship course is situated in the Ludo valley, just 2km east of the resort. Boasting some spectacular fairways and well-defined greens, Laranjal is renowned for its five beautiful lakes and its abundance of umbrella pines, cork and orange trees. At 6,480 meters in length, the course is challenging and it demands the highest levels of concentration and accuracy. Its distinctive rolling terrain has been expertly designed and manicured to provide a world class golfing experience. Comprising five par 5s, eight par 4s and five par 3s, the course is sown with Bermuda on the fairways and Penn A4 on the greens, guaranteeing excellent putting surfaces throughout the year.

Recommendations led to high expectations but we were left somewhat disappointed. Course was pleasant enough, but overpriced in our opinion, especially when including the price of the buggy. As with far too many Algarve golf courses the pace of play was simply unacceptable. Would not...More

We played here on our middle day in Quinta and found it a tricky course to play. It seemed very dry and brownish with water hazards and quick greens. The clubhouse and bar were friendly and accommodating. Well worth seeking out if in the area,...More

There's no doubt about it, this golf course is very nice indeed. The quality of the course is very good, the green keepers seem to work extremely hard and the setting and arrangement of the course is very good. A good challenge for good golfers...More

Sorry for late reply! We played as part of a package deal which included golf so I’m not sure of the pay and play costs, apologies I can’t help.
