Finding land for a golf course south of Lisbon was an imaginative task and part of the fascination is travelling by ferry from Setubal. Upon arrival, the reasons become clear. Troia is on the tip of a long peninsula. From anywhere on the course, it is possible to view the sea. Built by Robert Trent Jones, it is a links-style course, although the designer’s American golf resort style also emerges. The position of Troia is vulnerable, but the peninsula is not directly in the Atlantic, so winds are advantageous and not too strong, allowing pines and foliage to grow much more profusely than in the British Isles. Unfortunately, Troia was established during the difficult post-revolution period and lacked the financing needed for a successful start-up and consolidation. However, it was able to survive and now shows promise of becoming the naturally beautiful course that it was always envisioned to be.
