Vilamoura Laguna Golf Course is located in the so-called Golden Triangle, the prestigious area between Faro and Albufeira is known for its breathtaking natural beauty: pristine beaches and sand dunes, and dramatic cliffs. The area is ideal for those looking for quiet relaxation or exciting entertainment; this, coupled with its unrivalled location, within proximity to the sea and the mountains, are just a few of the characteristics that make the Golden Triangle so special.

The area also boasts some of the country’s finest homes and its most luxurious beach resorts and prestigious golf courses, such as Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo, and Vilamoura. Many of the area’s golf courses host acclaimed international tournaments, including the Portugal Open and the Portugal Masters. The Golden Triangle is the perfect combination of comfort, leisure, and quality of life, creating the ultimate year-round destination.

After a requalification project, the reopening of the Vilamoura Laguna Golf Course is scheduled for September, the plans for the refurbishment of the golf course were based on three key pillars: definition, contrast, and uniformity.

The plans included the full substitution of the outdated irrigation system was not able to keep the course in good condition in the dry months. With this, it was possible to reduce water consumption by around 30%, for the same playing area. This saving in water consumption is also possible due to the new varieties of grass selected, which are more tolerant of water shortages.

Vilamoura Laguna Golf Course is located on relatively flat and open land, with many water obstacles. It is considerably different from the other courses and is therefore considered a fundamental piece that completes the diversified offer of golf courses in Vilamoura. Many of its holes give the course a links layout that offers different and varied options and solutions for playing, a typical feature of the design of its author, the American architect Joseph Lee.

At its reopening players can expect a golf course in which it will be possible to clearly identify all areas to play, along with the contrast given by the different tones of grass and cutting heights.
