San Lorenzo: One of the Best Golf Courses in the World
October 17th, 2013
San Lorenzo in the Algarve in Golf World Magazine's Top 100
Golf World Magazine recently named
San Lorenzo one of the best golf courses in the world, placing it
24th in its Top 100 list. The publication laid heavy praise on San
Lorenzo for being one of the most challenging courses in the
Algarve. With its excellent array of cleverly situated holes and
fairways - each of which take full advantage of the surrounding
nature reserves and expansive woodland to create exciting golf at
every twist and turn - the San Lorenzo Course remains one of the
premier destinations for golf in the whole of the Algarve.
The magazine also paid particular compliments to San Lorenzo's glorious surroundings. The course is set alongside the Ria Formosa Natural Park and the Atlantic Ocean, making for very picturesque play. The natural saltwater lagoons of the Natural Park act as very interesting water hazards on a number of the holes, while the golden sands on the Atlantic provide lovely views from many of the greens.
One of the Most Beautiful and Challenging Courses in the Algarve
After opening back in 1988, the course - designed by legendary golf architects Joseph Lee and Rocky Roquermore - has gone from strength to strength, winning a host of accolades and awards. Laid out in the figure of eight, the course is resplendent with soft, rolling woodland and thriving pine trees. Holes are varied and challenging, with notable ones including the 5th, which looks over to the Atlantic; the 9th, which requires a drive up a gentle valley; and the 11th, which offers dramatic inland views. The greens are maintained exceptionally, making the course a real show piece for the golfing guests at Dona Filipa Hotel. Guests at Dona Filipa Hotel are given exclusive and preferential access to this world renowned course... and all the management and staff at the hotel are delighted that they are able to deliver some of the finest golf in the Algarve year after year.
