It was a long Sunday morning....
We were well aware of the hype surrounding the San Lorenzo golf course in Quinta do Lago. Sadly, the hype was wrong. Our first feeling that the course may not live up to the expectations it carries was upon arriving at the first tee to be greeted by a dis-organised starter who was sending groups out whenever they were ready to go instead of at their allocated tee time (leading to major congestion on the very first hole). Having played through a 4 ball on the very first hole... we very quickly became disenchanted with the golf course. Patchy fairways, burnt out areas around the greens, inconsistent sand levels in the bunkers and a number of dangerously blind tee shots where you can very realistically hit people walking along the beach on the public walkways, led to a less than enjoyable round. The food on the 19th hole didn't do much to lift our spirits! The only saving grace for San Lorenzo was the good quality, very fair and quick greens. Unfortunately it will be a no in future..
