The Quinta do Lago South Golf Course is still the most famous and one of the favourites among European Tour Professionals. This golf course, designed by William Mitchell and inaugurated in 1974, became world known after hosting the Portuguese Open on 8 occasions - the latest in 2001. The Quinta do Lago South requires accuracy with trouble waiting for a miss-hit shot. The player has several ways to approach greens and long hitters will be favoured. However, each hole has one easy route and the player who sees this, and has the skill to follow the designer’s intention, will produce sub-par figures.

The Vale do Lobo Ocean Course's emblematic holes are two challenging and spectacular Par 4s, the 11th and the 14th – which treat golfers to some of the most spectacular views in the Algarve - and the Par 3 15th, which runs alongside the beach.
