Top hint for this course

How about a tip for the end of the front nine? We recommend being cautious about your approach to the dancefloor, so hit a lay-up shot rather than attempting from a distance.

Full Course Lowdown

Quinta de Cima is Quinta da Ria resort's gem. This championship course was built for tournaments, and while the layout is testing, even beginner golfers can attack the course and enjoy the challenges.

It requires careful navigation, from undulating greens to doglegs, and plenty of hazards, you will improve as you play. Hit the fairways with the gang and check it out.


The opener, a par-5, has strategically placed bunkers halfway. If you're a big hitter, carry straight over. If you're not, land before the sand for an easier second shot. Be sure to approach the dancefloor from the right, as the bunkers crowd the front and left.

A par-3 on the 8th holds a risk-reward shot. Will you go for the pin and risk hitting the sand? Or will you aim just before the sand for an easy chip shot? We'll let you decide.

On the 12th, the bunkers are a nightmare (that friend who can't avoid sand is in trouble). Aim between the middle two bunkers before cautiously approaching the well-protected green. It's not easy.

Now for the 16th. Aim between the three bunkers before navigating the water or carrying over it. Can you avoid the drink? Anything over-hit or under-hit will find trouble.

To finish, the 18th is similar to the 16th, but with a dogleg, so bring your a-game on the final fairway. Choose your club carefully and take your time. You can't start the trip with a loss!


If you're a foodie, then you've hit the jackpot. From gourmet Portuguese cuisine and wine to massive juicy beef burgers and ice-cold Super Bock, there's something for everybody.

The chef even prepares light bites for those looking for a snack to fuel their round or recover after 18 holes.

Grab your favourite beverage, kick back on the terrace, soak up the sun, and enjoy your bragging rights as the champ.

The Location

Found on the Quinta da Rai resort, you're next door to the Quinta da Rai course, which you must play if you can. Why not just play both? Nearby are the famous Monte Rei North and Quinta do Vale, so you're spoilt for choice.

Accommodation is also top-class. Sports lovers with active lifestyles will love The PR1ME Energize Monte Gordo and its 4-star facilities.

If you want to stay elsewhere, don't worry, the area is crawling with hotels for all budgets, which makes finding somewhere to stay effortless.

Tavira is ideal for those seeking a cultural experience with stunning restaurants, sophisticated drinks, and relaxing beach spots.

On top of this, Faro International Airport is 48.9km away, so you'll be at the course pretty soon after landing.
