San Lorenzo Golf
18holes golf course in the Quinta do Lago Resort near Almancil
Location and access
The San Lorenzo golf course is situated in the Golden Triangle of the Algarve on the south-eastern corner of Quinta do Lago. It borders the nature reserve of the Ria Formosa between Faro International Airport and Almancil. It is a seven km drive from the EN125 in Almancil to the club house in the heart of the resort, and around ten km from the exit 13 of the A22 motorway.
The course, designed by the American golf architects Joseph Lee and Rocky Roquemore, was opened in 1988. It takes advantage of the wonderful topography of the Quinta do Lago estate, winding its way gently over undulating pine woodland down to the coast of the unique lagoon landscape.

It has some holes of exquisite beauty, mainly those near the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. The course is laid out in a figure of eight with the clubhouse in the centre and Bermuda grass fairways providing perfect playing conditions all-year round.
