Hotel Quinta do Lago Amateur Golf Challenge
28th October – 4th November 2017

The 22nd Hotel Quinta do Lago Amateur Golf Challenge, held from the 28th of October to the 4th of November 2017, is the perfect opportunity for golfers of all levels to challenge fellow guests on the Algarve’s finest greens and together enjoy entertaining evening social events, during 7 days of joyous competition.

About Golf de la Luz

Golf de la Luz was incorporated in February 2004 following a brief golfing holiday in the Costa de la Luz (Huelva region) in late 2003 where an opportunity arose to develop a destination-specific golf travel company for that region in particular. In the years since then we have grown to become the leading golf travel specialist to the Costa de la Luz in addition to offering golf holidays in other regions of Spain, Portugal and Turkey.
