When you become a member you can access the on-line booking system which allows you to book tee times or enter competitions even when you are not in Portugal.

If you don't have internet access at home or here in Portugal, you can always ring the office or book via our touchscreen terminals in the clubhouse.

Course Allocation

Usually the Club is allocated exclusive tee times on the North and South courses on alternate days. Members can play outside of these times on either course if there are spaces available. Start times after 4.30pm are always available for 9 hole rounds.

Buggies & Trolleys

Your annual subscription includes an element for the free use of buggies and electric trolleys. Buggies are hired from the Course Operator and have up to date GPS systems. The Club has its own fleet of electric trollies that can be signed out by members.

Course Operations

The golf courses are not operated by the Club, but by SGQL who are responsible for all course operations and maintenance. Their reception is next door to the Member's clubhouse. All times outside those on the members booking system must be booked through them (Tel 289 390700).

Playing Other Courses

As a Club member, you will receive automatic affiliation to the Portuguese Golf Federation, which entitles you to green fee discounts on other courses in Portugal. Although Laranjal Golf Course is also owned and run by Quinta do Lago, it is not included in the CGQL Membership arrangement.
