Architect Rocky Roquemore.

26/04/2004 - Sent by Tony Brunyee
  If you want a good test of golf, then Quinta da Cima is the one. I have just returned (23/04/04) and it was in superb condition, they have the same grass on the tees as the greens, and is quite an easy course to walk.

Quinta da Cima is the inland course of this delightful and new 36 hole complex set in the Ria Formosa National Park near Tavira. It’s sister course Quinta da Ria opened in March 2002 and has already established itself in a very short time as a quality resort course which every level of player will enjoy, time and time again.

Quinta da Cima on the other hand has been designed for the more accomplished players and is the resorts premier test. Winding itself across rolling parkland the central feature of the course is a river which passes right across the course setting up several strategic balancing lakes as it goes. The water course comes into play on many holes and the architect Rocky Roquemore has skilfully blended it naturally with an enormous number of native olive trees, many huge and centuries old, carob & almond.

The architect has also used the higher elevations for tees and greens resulting in a visually stunning course to play. The coup de grace of his design is the liberal use of bunkers - literally dozens and dozens of them have been employed to provide course definitions and hazards - fairway bunkering is common and will affect tee shots strategies many times because they are positioned precisely where a players ball will finish - whether you are a Pro off the back tees, or a lady off the front tees.

Quinta da Cima is technically more demanding than it’s sister course Quinta da Ria, but is very enjoyable. The bunkering is challenging but fair - there is always an alternative way to play each hole to avoid them. Many of the fairway bunkers are not penal in so much as a well struck recovery shot is possible with virtually any club (even a putter).

To score well here demands good, precise tee shots (not necessarily with your driver) - position is of greater value than distance although during this, it’s first season, the rough is almost non-existent on most holes. This will probably be the case for the first year or two as well. Everyone will enjoy the course - better players will probably enjoy it slightly more !!
