The fortunate creator was blessed with an unimaginably beautiful blank canvas as San Lorenzo sits in the Ria Formosa nature reserve, a vast park which is home to terrific plant and wildlife species. There are many different styles of golf at San Lorenzo, as you wind through the terrific pines, lakes, and private villas, while the course also works its way out to the coastline.
There are countless spectacular holes, like the sixth, a par-4 towards the ocean which gets the juices flowing, before the course builds up to a magnificent crescendo with the closing stretch; the 17th is a daunting test, while the closing hole is a the classic ‘risk/reward' hole, where the intrepid golfer must strike a good approach shot to reach the spectacular semi-island green.
San Lorenzo's considerable reputation is not for nothing - this terrific course will not disappoint should you visit during your next golf holiday in the Algarve.
The easiest way to experience the 7-time Portuguese Open host is to stay at the Dona Filipa Hotel.

San Lorenzo Golf Course is ranked as one of the best courses in Portugal
The clubhouse is orbit the changing rooms need updating. The course condition was not very good, neither the green or the tees. Probably the volume of traffic.
Please book buggies in advance as they are limited. The club shop was expensive. The greens were in poor condition.
Great course but buggies expensive and GPS
Great Scenic Course, untidy in areas, but overall a great, tough experience.
Not in great condition and considering the premium we payed (£150) was not worth it and certainly not so exclusive anymore
Some amazing holes, clubhouse needs a complete refurb, course wasn’t in great condition but if you can get access to this course it’s a must even just to experience holes 6,7 and 18!
Great course, every hole a challenge, cracking views. Bit pricey.
A brilliant course in great condition. Not easy but a fair enjoyable challenge. We would play this all week and forget Pinheros Altos
fantastic golf course
2 out of the 3 tee times were pushed back. One by 90 minutes.
A special place
One of the finest courses in the area a real treat to play
Thought the greens were a bit over watered which in turn they felt spongee other than that a great designed course would play again.
As usual a good challenge and very enjoyable.
Beautiful beyond belief with some holes that will linger in my mind for a long time,not to mention the most opulent properties I have ever laid eyes on.I played Ailsa at Trump Turnberry a few months ago and I can honestly say that San Lorenzo is up there with the best coarses I have played.
One of my favourite courses . Veiws are fantastic and the villas along the fairway are something else
One of my favourite courses in the Algarve- great layout. Always in good condition- only downside is with early tee times greens are v.soft from being heavily watered and can easily mark.
My first experience of San Lorenzo and my God, what a place. Amazing course, with some spectacular views and villas that would be outside a lottery win. Too difficult for me on the last day of a tour, but glad I experienced it.
This course was meant to be better than the previous, but my party all enjoyed. Pinheiros better. Buggies were better and cheaper. But would play both again. Would like to thank Nicolas Hall for all his help and advice. We are booking again for next year 😊
