San Lorenzo Golf Course
The superb and well frequented San Lorenzo Golf Course, designed by Joseph Lee and owned by Le Meridien Dona Filipa, was recently considered one of the best golf courses in Europe and, in 1993, was voted Continental Europe's third best golf course by the magazine Golf World.
The course features large fast greens and undulating fairways which meander through avenues of pine trees. There are some spectacular holes overlooking the sea as well as lakes with abundant wildlife.
Situated in the Quinta do Lago development and forming part of the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, a round on this course begins with an enticing but almost unachievable Par 5, before continuing to the three following holes along rolling, pine tree-fringed fairways. It is from hole number 5, however, that the most extraordinary part begins, offering wonderful views over the Atlantic Ocean. At hole number eight the course turns back inland and faces the largest of the lakes. For the next four holes the course again turns seawards and ends with the daunting 18th, with a semi-island green, and recognised as one of the best finishing holes in golf.
This is a golf course with outstanding views, a calm and tranquil setting, and one that shows nature at its best.
