Quinta do Lago has strengthened its position as one of the Europe’s top golfing destinations after both the South and North courses again made the Top 100 Golf Courses of Continental Europe 2018, with the former claiming the added kudos of being the second biggest climber in the prestigious rankings.
The luxurious Algarve destination has long been a favourite for golfers from across the globe thanks to its three 18-hole championship courses, with the only surprise being Laranjal did not make the list.
Quinta do Lago’s South Course, which has hosted the Portuguese Open on eight occasions and boasts the stunning backdrop of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, rose a staggering 35 places up to 43rd spot in the rankings.
The North Course – redesigned in the autumn of 2014 by renowned American designer Beau Welling and former victorious European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley at a cost of €9.6 million – moved up three places to 92nd in the coveted rankings.
Sean Moriarty, chief executive of Quinta do Lago, said: “To be recognised in this way is obviously great news and testament to all the staff who work tirelessly to keep our golf courses in pristine condition.
