Troia Golf Championship Course

Troia Golf Championship Course
Place: Tróia
Troia Golf Championship Course
Considered one of the best golfing layouts in Portugal, Tróia represents an exciting challenge for any lover of the sport and has already hosted the Portuguese Open.

Tróia is a magnificent links course set in a region of great natural beauty between the ocean and the estuary of the River Sado, with the mountains of Arrábida in the background. Surrounded by pine-trees, beaches and the sea, it makes the most of the natural ups and downs of the sand dunes and the legendary Robert Trent Jones Snr used the course´s main natural feature (sand) to form the major obstacle, considering hole number 3 here to be amongst the best par 4´s he has ever designed and including it amongst the 18 holes of his ideal course. White sand is to be found everywhere, not only in the bunkers that protect the small, narrow greens, but also in many of the rough areas. The harmony that has been achieved with nature makes it seem as though the course has always been there. And all the obstacles seem to appear quite naturally, even for the top professional golfers. Sam Torrance won the 1983 Portuguese Open here with a total score of just two under par.

It is considered to be the best course in Portugal in the categories of difficulty and variety, having been voted fourth best in the biennial poll organised by the European Golf magazine. It also stands in 20th place in the list of the best golf courses in Europe drawn up by the Golf World magazine.
