The Laranjal Golf Course was designed by Jorge Santana da Silva and is administrated by Quinta do Lago Resort. It is located at Ludo just a short distance from the actual Resort. The narrow fairways and the bunker defended greens require club accuracy for golfers to play this course. The site was originally a large orange grove and its rolling terrain has been adapted thoughtfully to the layout of the 18 holes. There have been five attractive lakes constructed to provide both background decor and suitable water hazards.
There are five Par-5, eight Par-4, five Par-3, all of which run through pine, cork, and orange trees, and with the added attraction of the lack of buildings lining the fairways. The sixth hole which is a Par-5 presents a demanding drive and a final raised tee. The sixteenth Par-5 needs accuracy as two of the shots will need the player to avoid the water, first on the left and then on the right. The best Par-3 hole is the eleventh of 210 metres in length with both water and sand to challenge the player. The Laranjal Golf Course is near to other good courses in the Quinta do Lago Resort should be considered by serious golfers in their Golf Holiday Package plans.
