Good honest courses
Both Quinta da Ria and Quinta de Cima share all the facilities adjacent to the Robinson Hotel/Complex. Both courses are in pretty good shape.
De Cima seems to like loads of bunkers and a bit of water and da Ria appears to like plenty of water with a good smattering of bunkers.
Tee boxes through to the greens on both courses are in very good condition and (providing the mowers are used) have plenty of run on the fairway.
The two memorable holes are, firstly on de Cima, the 17th 171 yard par 3 straight over a lake. the wind was blowing the day I played and it required a driver for both players. Secondly the 10th par 4 SI1 - more water at 190 yards from the tee with a pair of mature tree just behind. You need to grip it and rip it, what a cracking hole.
