Situated in the Quinta do Lago development and forming part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, San Lorenzo Golf Course lingers long in the memory of all who play it – a combination of natural beauty, pristine presentation and hole after hole of challenging golf. Golf Digest rates San Lorenzo Golf Course among the world's top 100 and the best golf course of the Iberian Peninsula. Golf World recognised San Lorenzo Golf Course as the 2nd best golf course in Europe. While much of the San Lorenzo Golf Course goes through typical Algarvian pinewoods, it also opens to stunning ocean views and distant mountain backdrops. A good part of San Lorenzo is virtually an extension of the surrounded nature of Ria Formosa with fairways that run alongside saltwater marshes and freshwater lagoons. This protected environment is the habitat of over 70 bird species. The impeccable maintenance of San Lorenzo as well as the careful course management are definitively user friendly.
