Portugal training camp of 'great benefit'

Quinta do Lago's reputation has received a fantastic endorsement from England Golf after its national squads completed a successful  run of winter camps at the Portuguese resort.

After signing an exclusive four-year deal  to become England Golf’s new winter training base last autumn, England Golf held a series of five- and seven-day training camps for its men’s, ladies’, boys’ and girls’ elite squads between January and March.

The primary focus of the warm-weather breaks was to work on improving each player’s scoring skills, with squad members being put through a series of daily activities and practising on the resort’s two championship courses.

Graham Walker, coach of the England men’s squad, said: “I found Quinta do Lago a very welcoming venue with excellent facilities. The courses were in top-class condition for the benefit of all the players, and the real strength of the resort was that we could set up challenges on the golf course.

“It was a great benefit to be able to play and practice on championship-standard courses throughout the winter.

“The courses were a pleasure to play and all the players enjoyed them. The other facilities at Quinta do Lago, including the food, were top of the range and the staff were very accommodating, allowing us to concentrate  on our work.”
