Without question one of the best golf courses I have ever played. Somehow seemed a cross between Torrey Pines and Pinehurst No. 2. Not inexpensive, but in wonderful condition and replete with wonderful views in every direction. One caution is that the powder sugar sand...More

This was a proper test of golf. The greens are true fair and fair, the fairways just wide enough and the bunkers were challenging. The waste ground either side of a number of fairways made it all the more interesting. The only downside is that...More

This golf course is a tough nut to crack, it needs to be played more than one time before there will be full enjoyment of the game, Much sand as the rough is mostly wasteareas so if you don't like sand stay on the fairway...More

We played in Feb 2017. The weather was glorious and we got to play a fantastic course. Probably one of the best links courses in Europe. The Trent Jones design is tricky and testing but a lot of fun. Every hole is unique and offers...More

One of my favourites, and acclaimed as one of Europe's best, this Trent Jones Senior design is an unique challenge. Pine needles and sandy areas add significantly to the challenge of this beautiful seaside golf course to which the European PGA Tour declined to return...More

This course was the second we played on our tour. The course had a great lay out but was in need of a bit of cosmetic work. But still an enjoyable day

It's not often you have to catch a ferry to play a round of golf! Caught the ferry from Setubal to Troia and then a 5 minute drive to the course. Hired clubs, a buggy and a green fee and although this was expensive the...More

I've played a lot of a links courses in the UK - but none of them are like Troia. The course was incredibly quiet and our group of 8 felt like we had the course to ourselves. The course is open to the wind with...More

Returned to Troia for the second year after playing it last year, beautiful course and each hole presents it's own challenge. Excellent condition for the time of year and even better than last year's visit, especially the greens! Its now on our favourite courses list....More

Be prepared for humiliation on the first 9. It will get better on the second 9 and especially hole 18 from white is a beauty.

I think it would probably take you an hour and a quarter to include the ferry. You have to get to Setubal which is where the ferry goes from to the tip of the narrow peninsula opposite which has the golf course.
