Troia Golf

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1978

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.

    Opened in 1979, the Pousada de Palmela is located in the historic Castle of Palmela, integrating the cloisters of the old convent that was part of the Castle.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
