Quinta de Cima Golf Course
Eighteen holes skilfully scattered around the Ria Formosa, dog legs left and right are characteristic of this course. Streams come into play on several holes.
18 holes, 72 par, 6842 yards. Parkland.
This new championship-standard sister course to Quinta da Ria is one that certainly provides an enjoyable challenge for the more accomplished players. Set in undulating terrain smattered with almond trees, it provides open fairways so the longer players can really open their shoulders but at the same time contend with plenty of well-placed water hazards. The first two holes indicate the true nature of the course, emphasizing the need for good club selection combined with accuracy. The architect Rocky Roquemore has also used higher elevations for tees and greens resulting in a visually stunning course to play. The coup de grace of his design is the liberal use of bunkers. Dotted all over the course, they make it more of a challenge than the sister course Quinta de Ria, but no less enjoyable. The key to scoring well here is a steady nerve and clever shot selection.
