The luxurious Hotel Quinta do Lago on Portugal's Algarve coast will play host this November to its fourth annual amateur golf challenge.

Participants in the 1999 Orient-Express Challenge will put their skills to the ultimate test over three rounds of 18 holes on the championship courses surrounding the hotel, including the par 72 (6159m) Pinherios Altos Course designed by Ronald Fraeam, the par 73 (6331m) Vilamoura Old Course designed by Frank Pennink and the par 72 (6448m) Quinta do Lago estate course.

The tournament will run from 6-12 November, allowing plenty of time for practice rounds, sessions on the driving ranges, tuition with the hotel's PGA professional and time off to explore the beautiful Algarve coastline.

This is the fourth year the tournament has taken place at the hotel and it has been established as the perfect way for amateur golfers to combine their passion for golf with a warm winter break. Last year the tournament was won by Mr Carlo Moraglio from Turin in Italy, who had a 10 handicap and a winning score of 111 Stableford points over 54 holes.

The cost of the week is £720 per person sharing a double/twin room and includes 7 nights in luxurious accommodation, daily buffet breakfast, meals as specified and participation in the Orient-Express Amateur Golf Challenge.
