Quinta North & Laranjal
Having returned from playing both Laranjal and Quinta do Lago North yesterday, and taking some time to consider my thoughts and appraise the experience, my appraisal is as follows. Both experiences were awful. Firstly, it is a matter of time before someone is very badly hurt playing around these golf courses as a result of exceptionally poor management from the 'starters' right through to the on course rangers. Both courses suffer from the same management inefficiencies which lead to the starters allowing you to tee off even when the group in front of you has not completed their second shots. This happened on both Laranjal and Quinta North first tee's, so it was clearly not a one off. Throughout the round, players in groups behind consistently hit balls dangerously close to us and despite our appeals to the rangers, nothing was done, culminating in a ball fizzing past my playing partners head on the 18th hole. Having played the Quinta do Lago golf courses numerous times over the past couple of years I highly recommend you ignore these courses and suggest you go to Vilamoura- better courses, in better condition for better value...and the added benefit that you might survive your round!
