In keeping with its reputation for excellence, Quinta do Lago takes great pride in the opening of its new and third 18 hole championship course, Laranjal. Laranjal, originally an orange grove, is today a beautiful and totally different golf experience. It is a sanctuary for those seeking the finest in golf and personalized service. Its narrow fairways and well defined greens require concentration and accuracy to navigate this testing route laid out on a rolling and distinctive terrain. It is a par 72, 6,480 meters, with five par 5s, eight par 4s, five par 3s set amongst umbrella pines, cork-oaks and orange trees with a natural water course and 5 beautiful lakes. Penn A4 was selected for the greens to help guarantee good putting surfaces all year round and the Fairways are sown with Bermuda

It is about the game and the strategy as well as the aesthetics. Nobody will be indifferent to it”, Arch. Santana da Silva.
