Quinta da Ria Golf
18holes golf course Quinta da Ria near the Robinson Club Quinta da Ria between Tavira and Vila Real de Santo António
Location and access
The golf courses Quinta de Cima and Quinta da Ria are located in the eastern Algarve on the national road EN125 between Tavira and Vila Real d.S.A. on the border of the Ria Formosa nature reserve. Extensive orange groves and vineyards dominate the scenery, taking advantage of the fertile lagoon landscape. It is a drive of about 16 kms from the A22 motorway exit 16 (Tavira), and ten km from exit 17 coming from Spain.
This spectacular 18 hole golf course spreads along an almost flat surface of 660.000 sqm down to the Ria Formosa with a stunning view of the sea. Five lakes were strategically built along the course, and are also used as water reservoirs for the irrigation and are fed from a stream. The smoothly undulating greens, are well protected by bunkers.
More than 300 trees, such as olive and carob have been transplanted in order to maintain the ancient border of the course and the typical features of the region’s landscape. From anywhere on the course, one can see both the mountains and the sea. The surrounding orange trees and vineyards give their contribution to this peaceful rural scenery.
