Quinta do Lago, has teamed up with 2014 Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley and TaylorMade to offer four friends the chance of a lifetime to live as golfing legends for a week.

In the free-to-enter 'Best Fourball Ever' competition, the winner and three friends will be flown out to Portugal on a private jet and chauffeur-driven to a private luxury villa, where they will be treated to an array of exclusive five-star lifestyle experiences.

As well as enjoying the services of a private chef for the duration of their seven-day visit, they will also have the chance to meet McGinley and enjoy a personal club-fitting consultation with Europe’s captain, just two weeks after the conclusion of the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

The fitting will take place in the facilities at Quinta do Lago’s state-of-the-art TaylorMade Fitting Center at the resort’s renowned Paul McGinley Academy, where the foursome will be dressed in the latest adidas gear and be presented with a set of new TaylorMade clubs.

In addition, the lucky quartet will have the privilege of being VIP guests of the European Tour at the Portugal Masters on a day of their choosing and enjoy unlimited golf throughout their stay at the luxury resort, which will also afford them the opportunity to  be among the first, specially invited guests, to test out Quinta do Lago’s newly-refurbished championship North Course.


Closing date for competition entries is June 22 and the best bit of all is that it won’t cost a penny … making it arguably the best fourball ever offered.

John Dwyer, chief executive at Quinta do Lago, said: “It is a very exciting time at Quinta do Lago; significant recent investments have ensured the resort remains the freshest, most family-friendly venue on the Algarve. With a wide range of new packages designed to suit everybody’s requirements and a series of summer events to excite young and old, including the relaunch of our remodelled North course, there’s never been a better time to visit the resort.

“Entering our fifth decade, we wanted something special to celebrate, and believe this competition offers golfers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience one of the leading resorts in Europe, while enjoying the brand new North Course and unrivalled hospitality with three friends.”

Quinta do Lago has firmly established itself as one of the most highly regarded golf and real-estate developments in the Algarve since opening in 1972.

Located just 15 minutes from Faro airport and sitting among 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park, the resort offers residents and guests an unparalleled location benefiting from a year-round temperate climate, a variety of lifestyle pursuits and a strong sense of community.

Since its inception, Quinta do Lago has been at the forefront of golf in the Algarve with its three 18-hole championship courses – Laranjal, South and North – matched by outstanding practice facilities.

Away from the fairways, the estate’s extensive leisure facilities guarantee there is plenty to keep everyone occupied, with tennis, cycling, watersports and horse-riding just some of the activities available.

Quinta do Lago offers easy access to the Algarve’s famous sandy beaches while the development’s wide array of restaurants, both formal and informal, allow visitors and residents the opportunity to savour the very best in traditional Portuguese cooking.
