The 18 hole San Lorenzo Course has a very high reputation for the condition in which it is maintained and the very attractive views that players enjoy during their round. Located in the Quinta do Lago Estate this course has been ranked in the past as the second best course in Europe. The first five holes are through the typical pine tree forest of this region. The architect has introduced a good layout that places hazards to challenge the choice of club and quality of play. The last hole is a demanding par-4 involving a lake that is begging for that wayward ball! Visitors should take note that guests of the Hotel Dona Filipa have preference on tee times.
San Lorenzo Reviews

I was given trusted advice to play from experienced Algarve golfer. Recently played San Lorenzo on Easter Sunday early morning.
The drive to the course sets the scene of what this place is about; money, class and style.
Played course of white tee and I play off 4 handicap.
I really enjoyed the variety and style of each hole. Each hole different and require different strategy and shot type. A course you can play different strategy where I played aggressive, you could equally plot yourself around leaving longer second shots. Greens were very good and rolled well and receptive. Course was fair and errant shots were punished fairly.
Not 5 stars?
I have voted for 4 stars as I feel the price is high where reputation has maintained its stature. Signs of some disease damage and greens were not wiped of dew. Tee boxes were bit sloppy and grass not cut.
Definitely worth playing if happy to spend top money.
One of the best I’ve Played
from United States
Frankly, I was amazed to read some of the reviews of this course from the last 12 months. I’ve played a lot of golf courses all around the world and I play to a single figure handicap; this course is possibly my favourite that I’ve ever come across. It tests every aspect of your game: long holes needing course management, short target holes, well placed traps and very impressively a few holes in links setup. The greens were in better condition than Quinta do Lago and the Old Course, and the fairways were a little bare in places, but by-enlarge were like carpets. It was well run by friendly staff, and the only small gripe I had is that it was €4 for 24 balls on the range. Honestly, an incredible test of golf and a beautiful setup.
San Lorenzo from TAGGS tour 2016

An outstanding golf course and in excellent condition when we played in May. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Length is a challenge for mid handicappers with some long and well constructed par fours and even par 5s tough to get home in regulation but it was windy ! On the expensive side as a visitor but worth the money for a great golfing experience.
