Where2Golf says: 

Troia Golf: Occupying part of a slim peninsula that juts up into the Sado estuary, you'll need to take a short ferry ride from Setubal to journey out to Tróia. Here you'll find one of the legendary courses of Portugal, and one that gets you right alongside the Atlantic shoreline. This ever-challenging 18-hole masterpiece has all the characteristics of a rolling, duneland, links course, even if many of its holes are lined by pine trees. Small greens, tightish fairways and Trent Jones' trademark plethora of bunkering, can make this former Portuguese Open venue quite a tough proposition, especially if the wind is blowing. If things aren't going according to your game plan, there's plenty of opportunity to enjoy the layout's natural environment, gently undulating terrain and many fabulous ocean views. The closer you get to the sea, the greater the sensation of open, rolling duneland you'll experience; the farther inland, the more tree-lined and tighter the course will feel. Troia's opening hole is a good-length par-5, played to a green defended by a formidable array of bunkering. Many golfers would vote the oceanside, par-4 3rd as their favourite, or maybe the mid-length par-3 17th, played to a perilously thin strip of a green, which also hugs the beach. The renowned, snaking par-5 18th, which stretches the full width of the course from the seashore all the way back to the clubhouse, lays down one last challenge that has made and, in many cases, broken a round on this thoroughly enjoyable and testing course.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
