Quinta do Lago, one of the most desired addresses in Europe, has announced its new multi-year partnership with Portugal’s highest ever ranked European Tour golfer, Ricardo Gouveia.
Gouveia will be the Quinta do Lago ambassador for the company. The relationship between Quinta Do Lago and Gouveia goes back many years as his family house is located on the grounds of Laranjal, one of the Quinta Do Lago golf courses. When in Portugal, Gouveia has always used Quinta Do Lago as his base for practice.
In 2016, Ricardo finished his maiden European Tour season at 54th on the Race To Dubai, comfortably retaining his card for the 2017 season. He had a T7 finish at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, T8 at the Made in Denmark, T13 at the Turkish Airlines Open and the highlight of the year being a T3 finish at the Nedbank Golf Challenge enabling Ricardo to play at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. Gouveia also represented Portugal at the Rio Olympic games and again at the World Cup at the end of the year in Melbourne.
‘Quinta do Lago is one of the most recognised golf resorts in the world and for me to partner with them is a huge honour. As a Portuguese player, to be an ambassador for this resort with 3 amazing golf courses, fantastic practice facilities and beautiful properties, is something that I am extremely proud of. The relationship between Quinta do Lago and my family is extremely important to me and I look forward to showcasing the Quinta do Lago brand on the International Golfing Stage,” said Gouveia.
“Sean Moriarty, chief executive at Quinta do Lago, said: “To have Portugal’s highest-ever ranked golfer as Quinta do Lago’s partner is indeed a very special privilege for us. The fact that Ricardo grew up on the same piece of land where our Laranjal course is makes it even more special. We’re looking forward to seeing Ricardo around the resort, and making full use of our superb golf facilities”.
