The club swapped the tee times so we played this course on the Sunday rather than the Friday as booked. This wasn’t a major issue. Both da Ria & Cima were in very good condition. The 2 main issues we had a group were 1. On arrival on the Friday were advised that Your Golf had only paid for 3 buggies where it clearly stated on our confirmation that we had booked and paid for 4. The lady at reception was helpful and provided the 4 buggies. This applied to the Sunday booking also. The 2nd issue was that the Clubhouse was closed on both days and if it wasn’t for the flexibility of the same staff member (on both days) we would not have had access to refreshments post the round. Given the hot weather this was very poor organising by Your Golf. We were advised that all golf operators were advised that the clubhouse was closed. The secondary impact was that our booked transfers had to be amended so that we were not left sitting at the clubhouse for 90 mins with no bar amenities. I had to contact Your Golf to arrange a change of time for pick up.
Quinta da Ria is a superb resort course, situated within the boundaries of the stunning Formosa National Park. Like its sister course, Quinta de Cima, the layout was designed by Rocky Roquemore, and extends all the way down to the spectacular shoreline.
