Quinta da Ria Golf
Located on the east Algarve near the town of Taviera, the Quinta da Ria golf course designed by William Roquemore Jr, is a spectacular 18 hole golf course within the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. The course runs down to the Ria Formosa with stunning views of the sea and mountains from anywhere along the course. Quinta da Ria is a par 72, comprising two loops of 9, each with two par 5s, five par 4s and two par 3s. Five lakes were strategically built along the course, which prove difficult hazards, as well as providing irrigation for the course. There are more than 300 trees including olive and carob trees on the course which were transplanted to maintain a border.
