The first of the two PAR 72 golf Courses extends itself in a spectacular location on the coast of the Eastern Algarve, locally known as “Sotavento”. Quinta da Ria Golf situated in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve has already been described by experienced golfers as the most beautiful course in the region. In fact, perched above the Ria Formosa estuary, the views down to the sand below, the tidal waters and the ever flowing currents are quite breathtaking. The concentration will drop, the mind will wander… Keeping your score at the forefront of the thought-process may not be so easy… and, in fact, you may not want to!
This magnificent 18 hole golf course is a formidable test of golf off any of the tees and a truly exceptional challenge. The whole area is blessed with a profound peacefulness. From Quinta de Cima Golf the views are spectacular and inspiring: from any part of the course, both the sea and the Algarve Mountains are a delight to anyone’s eyes. Old centenary olive and carob trees, together with the surrounding orange trees and vineyards, maintain the originality of the region landscape. It looks like as if the course has been there since centuries ago. This is a protected area and hopefully will remain this way forever!
