QUINTA DO LAGO has unveiled plans for a major renovation of its North Course to match the other first-class golfing facilities at the resort in Portugal's Algarve. The course is scheduled to re-open in October, with a new design by the renowned American golf architect Beau Welling in collaboration with European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley.
Greens, tees, bunkers, irrigation and drainage systems and cart paths are being re-built using the latest state-of-the-art technology.
While the routing of the course will not change, Quinta do Lago says that golf course strategy will be addressed to make the par-72 lay-out significantly more playable for all golfers while still being challenging for the better players. The reduction of grassed areas will lessen the impact on the environment and the new design will include the creation of some new animal and plant habitats.
