Portuguese golf resort Quinta do Lago has announced plans for a major renovation of its main golf clubhouse ahead of the 2020 season.
The prestigious Algarve venue has revealed that the clubhouse – which serves Quinta do Lago’s South and North courses – is to undergo a comprehensive upgrade over the winter, with the refurbishment work due to be completed by the end of March.
The renovation will be undertaken by local Portuguese architects Essencia Architects – the company that designed Quinta do Lago’s award winning multi-sports hub The Campus – and will elevate the clubhouse to the same five-star standard of the resort’s other outstanding luxury golf and lifestyle facilities.
Among the improvements being made, spacious new eating areas have been designed indoors and outside to create a contemporary new look and feel for guests, with the renovated rooms providing the perfect hub for golf groups, golf tournaments and business meetings.
In addition, the outdoor space is being expanded and furnished with a modern, attractive and environmentally-friendly decking area. New floor-to-ceiling windows will be introduced throughout the building to add increased light and deliver improved views of the resort surroundings, while golfers will also benefit from the installation of new men’s and women’s changing rooms.
Sean Moriarty, chief executive at Quinta do Lago, said: “In many ways, the clubhouse is the focal point for golfers at Quinta do Lago and it’s essential that we have the right image to reflect this.
“The old building was a great servant to the resort but its look and feel was getting tired, and we wanted a vibrant and contemporary new design that will appeal to the modern-day golfer and their families.
“The refurbishment programme put in place will put the new clubhouse on a par with the other first-class facilities we have at the resort, and I’m sure it will add greatly to the luxury golf and leisure experience that we offer to all our members, residents and guests.”
