Review:

Played this one the following day to having played the North Course and the first impression is that the course is a little bit more challenging, specially from the tee boxes where you need to move the ball in both directions. Greens are a little bit easier than North with no grain in both directions and slopes smoother, but all the same you can face Quinta do Lago (South) Golf Course - Photo by reviewer some extremely fast putts in some holes.


In this 18 holes I found some holes really spectacular and that will last longer in my memory:


- Par 4 1st is a nice opener where you can bomb it close to the green downhill.


- Tee shot on par 5 2nd demands very good direction if you wish to go for it.


- 3rd is a great par 4 where lake on the left can be a problem for longer hitters.


- 6th is a nice uphill dogleg left short par 4, second shot Quinta do Lago (South) Golf Course - Photo by reviewer is one of the nice ones to hit.


- 8th is a weak hole because from the tee box it is not that clear where to aim, but the best option is short and a mid iron as second shot.


- 10th if not the one I liked most, it will be close. It plays similar to 10th at Shinnecock (yes, but with trees on both sides!) where you can bomb it down the slope and have a nice uphill wedge.


- 13th is another good short one, dirvable for everybody able to hit 260yds.


Then the stretch 14-18 gives you a very nice end of the round, with 15-16 being the best ones and most scenic in the 36 holes with some views of the Ocean.


I am 4 rounds short on the Tour and so far this is very good!
