How To Save Money With The Discounts At Quinta Do Lago Laranjal Golf Course

The Algarve has established itself as one of the top European destinations for golf. Its climate is a particular advantage because when the weather is poor further to the north in Europe you would be very unlucky to find poor whether so far south. Its latitude guarantees very warm weather in the summer, short sleeve weather either side of summer and even decent temperatures in the winter. This part of Portugal is lovely with plenty to do one and off the golf course.

Quinta do Lago is one of the main destinations that golfers landing at Faro Airport head for in order to get excellent golf and fine accommodation. Its newest course, Laranjal is just a few years old, opening in 2009. It took no time at all for it to receive a Travel Award as the best course in Portugal, quite an achievement. Its design involves five lakes and the benefit of pine, cork and orange trees defining fairways.

The Course

Over 7,000 yards off the back tees it presents a real challenge to golfers who are able to book tee times online because of how well the Internet allows golf courses to market themselves. Websites provide a picture of what is on offer:

  • Undulating terrain with the trees and lakes adding to the challenge.
  • Five Par 5s, eight Par 4s, five Par 3s.
  • Penn A4 and Bermuda fairways on the greens.

It is certainly worth getting in touch with courses to discuss what they have to offer. Golf is now a competitive environment with several courses competing for golfing revenue. Many players aspire to challenge themselves against the best courses available and the award that Quinta do Lobo Laranjal won so early after its opening suggests that it compares favourably with the many Championship courses in the Algarve, many of which have hosted the Portuguese Open.


There are companies that are able to offer packages that include flight, accommodation and golf. Their relationship with accommodation and courses means that they are often able to offer rates that are not always available to golfers making individual approaches to both courses and accommodation. Either way the Algarve, and certainly Laranjal, offers a great experience which will get golfers to return time and again for more. Whether you want a short break or a longer holiday you will not regret your choice of the Algarve and Laranjal.

Best Golf Tips

Golf Is All About Strategy

Considering all aspects of a golf course you’ve never played before takes a bit of time. But you will reap the rewards of that effort during play. Your final score will surprise your opponents who thought they had one up on you because of their familiarity with the course. So take the time and do your homework. Making a habit of doing so will improve your game immensely. Golf is, after all, as much about strategy as it is about skill.
