Located in Quinta do Lago – less than a 10 minutes courtesy bus ride from the hotel – San Lorenzo Golf Course has become a grand showpiece for the Algarve, with its superbly manicured fairways, outstanding natural beauty, and tournament-ready conditions. The course, designed by the American golf architects Joseph Lee and Rocky Roquemore, is a combination of pristine presentation, stunning scenery and hole after hole of challenging golf.
Protected Algarve Nature Reserve
San Lorenzo Golf Course was opened in 1988 and takes advantage of wonderful topography on the Quinta do Lago estate, winding its way gently over undulating pine woodland. Situated partly within the boundaries of the Ria Formosa Estuary and Nature Reserve, San Lorenzo boasts fairways that run alongside saltwater marshes, freshwater lagoons and the cooling Atlantic Ocean. This protected environment also features towering pine woods that open up to spectacular ocean view and distant mountain backdrops; as well as offering a beautiful habitat for over 70 bird species, including herons, hoopoes, white storks, coots, black-winged stilts andthe rare purple gallinule.
The San Lorenzo Golf Course is laid out in a figure of eight and at the heart lies the San Lorenzo Clubhouse with a golf pro shop, comfortable changing facilities and welcoming bar and restaurant.
