In stark contrast, holes 6 to 14 designed by Joseph Lee and Rocky Rocquermore are known for their well tended and picturesque greens littered with umbrella pines.
The south course is the oldest of the three golfing greens in Quinta do Lago and has had the distinction of being the home of the Portuguese Open Championship a whopping eight times. Set against the backdrop of the Rio Formosa Natural Park, the South course is well known for its lush wild vegetation and umbrella pines along with its generous landing areas.
The Laranjal has been the newest additions to the championship courses of Quinta do lago, formerly an orange grove that gave way for a challenging golf course, the Laranjal has five par 3's and 5's along with eight par 4's intertwining amongst umbrella pines and orange trees.
