QDL Laranjal - Quinta do Lago
The choice of grasses – Tifton 419 for the fairways and Pen A-4 for the snooker-baize smooth greens – will give players a truly unforgettable experience.
Laranjals first nine holes cover 3285 metres and are a beautiful introduction of what is in store on the back nine with its lakes and other interesting obstacles, including the so-called “spectators mountain” between holes 8 and 9.
The par-3 11th is something special:
- how many people will experience the “beach bunker” here? From the tees of holes 12, 13 and 14 those first shots have to be very accurate to avoid trouble... all in all, Laranjal offers a challenge from start to finish, in terrain unlike any other course in the Algarve.
As Domingos da Silva says, “we are all eagerly and anxiously waiting for the first sounds of the first rounds – the “thwack” of the driver, the “plop” of the ball into the hole and – we hope” – the laughter that marks the good times our players will have along the way.
“I would like to congratulate everyone involved in this ambitious project - architect Jorge Santana de Silva, courses superintendent Paulo Viegas, Paulo Bota civil engineering, Benjamin Silva and his crew at Multi Golfe, and all those that will assist during the growing period.
They have all worked incredibly hard to bring this project to fruition and they, like me, look forward to welcoming our first visitors in early autumn.”
