Review for Quinta do Lago (Laranjal)

Reviewer Score:
TaylorMade

Review:

Laranjal is the most disappointing course I have played in many yrs...After much hype from here and friends I was expecting much much more. Yes the greens are really good...huge undulations, and nice and quick.....the condition generally was 8/10 but the course is crammed into a space thats too small, holes running very very close to each other, with "Fore" a constant shout...no rough, no penalty for wayward golf..no memorable holes....only 1 decent par 3...stupid 7th hole..(par 3 playing 271 into a gale)..too many people playing, 5 hr rd, and being constantly hassled by marshals..not allowed to play off Black tees, course felt short off whites.....this is holiday golf at best.....ranking on here v generous ...not in same league as Monte Rei, San Lorenzo, Quinta South and Old Course..and will never be a tournament course like Victoria...IMO should be late teens ranking for Algarve ..(group of 12 CAT 1 players, all thought same)
