The first hole at Quinta do Vale sets the tone for the rest of the round. A 500 yard par 5 that has a reasonably wide fairway and once you have found the middle you have a decision to make whether to go for the green or lay up short of the two water hazards that guard the green. Having negotiated that the second hole is a par 3 with water guarding the right hand side of the green and a large bunker protecting the left side.
The 4th hole is one of the standout holes on the course. A dogleg right with water all the way up the right side and a tightly guarded green. The 5th is a cracking par 3 onto an almost island green with a couple of bunkers at the back to catch the over hit shot.
The final 3 holes at Quinta do Vale present a tough challenge to end the round. The 16th is a short par 3 but has water guarding the right side of the green and all along the hole. The 17th is a sharp dogleg left par 5 that does give a birdie chance if you avoid the carefully placed bunkers. Finally the 18th looks on paper a short par 4 but even if you find the fairway your approach to the green has to avoid water at the front of the green and bunkers at the back .
