The newest course within the Quinta do Lago estate, and situated only five minutes from the Formosa Park Hotel, are the 27 holes designed by Ronald Fream and Jorge Santana. The course has an unusual layout with three nines of contrasting character ‘The Pines’, ‘The Corks’ and ‘The Olives’. The Pines, as its name suggests, meanders through typical Algarvian pine woods whereas many water hazards must be negotiated coming home. The rest is much flatter but the holes work their way through a series of lakes requiring accurate driving and precise iron play. The greens have a reputation for being the most difficult to read and to hit because they are small and undulating and usually in very good condition. The course embraces part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, making this another course of beauty and challenge for players of all standards. The outstanding par 3 5th (Pines) calls for a mid-iron shot played across a valley full of umbrella pines to a heavily contoured green.
