Ria Formosa, Quinta do Lago
This course has four great par-5 holes requiring power and accuracy to play them well and provides superb views during a round of golf. All the par-3 holes can be influenced by the wind depending on weather conditions. Hole 14 is outstanding. The par-4s are all doglegs except for holes 10 and 13. Accurate driving is vital to set up your approach shots for a low score. The lakes on holes 13 and 18 have claimed many a stay shot and the course favours the player who can hole the draw ball.

Address: Quinta da Lago - 8135 Almancil

San Lorenzo golf course
This exclusive and magnificently maintained course set in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve has a world-wide reputation and regularly ranks amongst Europe’s top five and number 64 in the world.

The opening five holes are typical of the Algarve with undulations and surrounding pine trees. You then pass along the coastline playing from raised tees. On the back nine, the long fifteenth is notable for its number of bunkers.

The two finishing holes are famously treacherous. The eighteenth requires an accurate drive away from the lake before attacking an island green protected by three bunkers.

A par 72 course, Ocean's unique combination of links and inland golf provides an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all levels.
