World Golf Awards Gala Ceremony 2015

A three-day programme of golfing has been built around the World Golf Awards Ceremony to ensure a weekend of unrivalled networking opportunities.

Thursday, 5th November 2015

World Golf Awards guests to arrive.


Friday, 6th November 2015

Option 1:

Breakfast in the Louro Restaurant.

07h28 – 08h52 – Golf on the Quinta do Lago Laranjal Course – Practice Day

Originally an orange grove, this beautiful par 72 championship course is situated in the Ludo valley, just 2km east of the resort. Boasting some spectacular fairways and well-defined greens, Laranjal is renowned for its five beautiful lakes and its abundance of umbrella pines, cork and orange trees. At 6,480 meters in length, the course is challenging and it demands the highest levels of concentration and accuracy. Its distinctive rolling terrain has been expertly designed and manicured to provide a world class golfing experience.
Comprising five par 5s, eight par 4s and five par 3s, the course is sown with Bermuda grass on the fairways and Penn A4 on the greens, guaranteeing excellent putting surfaces throughout the year.

*Light refreshments, golf clubs and golf buggy’s included

Option 2:

Breakfast in the Louro Restaurant

07h28 – 07h52 - Golf on the Quinta do Lago South Course – Practice Day

The favourite course of many European tour players, it is a 6,500 metre par 72 set amongst umbrella pines, lakes and wild flowers, overlooking the spectacular scenery of the Ria Formosa National Park. The course hosted the Portuguese Open in 1976, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990 and 2001, the most memorable, perhaps, being in 1989 when Colin Montgomerie won the title with an incredible 24 under par. He finished 11 strokes ahead and broke the course record with a round of 63.  Its championship status does not deter the amateur golfer. Indeed, while the 8th, 15th, and 18th are testing holes for low handicap players, the course provides interest and challenge to golfers of all levels and abilities.  Accurate tee shots are essential in order to reach many of the greens in regulation and the course is made more challenging by a good variety of doglegs and strategically located hazards. The front nine holes, which wind their way through parkland, favour a draw, while the back nine, which loop around the lake, favour a fade from the tee.

*Light refreshments, golf clubs and golf buggy’s included
