€9 million was invested on the North Course in 2014, implementing new innovative technology to ensure that the course was more environmentally friendly and even more aesthetically pleasing. Golfers of all abilities will not only be able to enjoy the challenge of the course but enjoy the visual aspects that the North Course is known for, with wonderful trees, white sanded bunkers and beautiful water hazards featuring throughout.
Totalling at 6,529 yards from the Yellows, it is not a particularly long course. Despite this, in terms of quality, you are spoilt for choice. It was named ‘The Best New Golf Course in Europe’ at the World Golf Awards in 2014, and it is evident why.
Signature Hole – No. 12: Par 4, 394 yards (White Tees)
The highlight of the North course is the 12th. Whilst also being the most visually appealing hole on the course, it is one of the most challenging. The hole doglegs its way around an ominous lake, and even the best of drives leaves a treacherous approach shot to a large undulating green.
Before teeing off, it is definitely worth visiting the Pro Shop in the North/South Clubhouse, where a variety of golf equipment and merchandise is on offer.
The practice facilities at Quinta Do Lago are phenomenal. The Quinta Do Lago Academy, which is in partnership with Paul McGinley, is available to golfers where they are assisted in improving their technique and strategy. Technology such as video analysis and flight scope are used effectively to analyse the individual’s strengths and weaknesses, in order to improve and take your game to the next level.
Quinta Do Lago also has a state-of-the-art TaylorMade performance centre, which is designed to give golfers the opportunity and access to try out the latest TaylorMade technology and equipment. The TaylorMade Select Fit System is also used to match the golfer’s swing with the ideal club. The performance centre is a very interesting way to understand your game in a more in-depth, entertaining way.
Relax after your round at the Quinta Do Lago clubhouse, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving a varied menu to suit all tastes. A coffee dock is also available from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm.
