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.

Great course. Very challenging. It’s known locally as ‘Troia the destroyer ‘ ! Wonderful links setting with fast greens and trouble everywhere. Love it !

What a great design by Robert Trent Jones Snr. A real test of golf! Last time the European Tour came here the cut was 9 over 😅 The course has become easier now as they had to cut over 5,000 pine trees because they had an illness. The par 3s are all very challenging and are key to a good score! Par 5s are a lot of fun as you can cut over trees if you are long enough and leave yourself a long iron to the green. Signature holes are 3, 4 and 14! 😍
