Kids go free in Quinta do Lago Easter Bonanza
Quinta do Lago is offering families an Easter holidays in style – by giving away free rounds of golf to their children.
Fathers are being invited to bring one of their kids along to play 18 holes of golf at the popular family resort on Tuesday March 19 and between March 25 and April 5, but only pay for one round.
The offer is available to juniors up to the age of 17 and extends to all three of Quinta do Lago’s championship lay-outs – the North and South courses and Laranjal.
Rita Jordão, golf and hospitality sales manager at Quinta do Lago, said: “With us, dads have the chance to spend some quality time with their kids and what could be better than doing so on the golf course, with a round of golf absolutely free.”
The South Course – which was again included in Golf World magazine’s poll of Top 100 Courses in Europe in 2012, while Laranjal, opened in 2008, has been carved from the grounds of an orange grove and its dramatic landscape provides a pure golfing experience.
Quinta do Lago is also home to the only Paul McGinley Academy in the world which, with regular input from Europe’s 2014 Ryder Cup captain, features the latest in state-of-the-art swing analysis technology at its TaylorMade fitting centre and first-class practice facilities.
