Troia Golf Championship Course is a spectacular links, and one of the most fascinating golf challenges in Portugal. The magazine Golf World elected in 2003, as the 25th best European Golf Course. The usual approach to the golf course is straight over the Estuary of the Sado River - a pleasant short ferry ride from Setubal to the Peninsula of Troia, a region of great natural beauty near the Atlantic Ocean.|The greens are small with naturally shaped defensive bunkers and hummocks, while the fairways are narrow and hemmed in by sandy dunes and pine trees, providing a genuine test of skill for the lowers handicap golfers together with enjoyment for the more modest players.|The front nine has a run of beautiful sea holes. Troia Golf Championship Course offers you a comfortable and welcoming Clubhouse, constructed in a rustic style, with a set of first class facilities services: golf reception, pro-shop, bar, restaurant and a large balcony to the 18th Green and also a excellent Driving Range with two putting-greens and one chipping and bunker practice area.
Really great golf course. Fantastic greens. Was a bit slow due to a large society out earlier but otherwise really enjoyed playing. Bar staff were really friendly too.
very friendly welcome. staff have a smile. older lady behind the bar/food area was good craic. looked after us. fantastic course off the whites. up there with the best in Portugal.
It was our first round at Troia. Overall we found that the course was not in a great shape. Perhaps this is normal during the winter season. Bunkers and greens were good to play though. Would not return this time of the year.
nice course, beautyfull views, expensiv ferry to the course
Ein richtig toller Golf course. Sehr interessant gestaltet mit vielen Bunkern und abwechslungsreicher Gestaltung. Und die Aussicht ist einfach umwerfend. Da war ich bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal. Das Personal sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Da muss man gewesen sein.
As always perfect
The course was in excellent condition and wee really enjoyed it.
Bonito campo. Diferente a casi todo. Un link en Portugal.
Un campo muy bonito. Dificil. Es una experiencia que no puedes perderte.
Lovely golfing experience
Top layout and long from the back tee's. The natural landscape is impressive and the course quality high. Only downside was in February there wasnt much service available for food and drinks but a minor point.
Nice place. Friendly people. Challenging and beautyfull golf course.
Very enjoyable links course. Not overly long but well designed.
Troia is a great place. Friendly staff and a great course. Today the only issue was the greens that was not cleaned.
A very high class golf course. It is probably better suited to the games of low handicappers, but if you select appropriate tees it can be enjoyed by anyone. Large waste areas; extensive bunkering, and small, fast greens all make the course very challenging. In excellent condition at the time of our visit. The clubhouse is very comfortable, and the practice area has everything you need for to warm up for your round. Comined with a ferry trip across the Sado estuary this is a great day out. We will return.
beautiful layout, very challenging from tees to be on the sweet spot of fairways. magnificent views over the bay.. Very well maintained, super greens

Nice course, very difficult due to waste areas instead of rough.
Loved this course - pretty demanding and very nice welcome when we were there
Maravilloso campo de golf en un enclave perfecto. Campo no muy largo pero muy técnico
Dirk van West
Very nice golf course next to the ocean. Friendly staff. However, it was a pity that I had to play when there was a tournament going on..
Ok. Todo perfecto. Muchas gracias. Juan Navarro
Very friendly, great course, maintenance excellent
Nice course with nobody there qw had the course on our own.
With the ferry to go for golf, sensationell to play golf
Very friendly and helpful staff when I had to change my tee time. Course was in superb condition, in a beautiful location. Definitely would recommend.
"Holiday"-Course. Easy to Play, in fair condition, many bunkers and waste Areas. Very narrow Course, greens and next tees next to each other. When returning from game at 4:30pm, the kitchen was closed. Thus, no rating of restaurant possible Rating: not more than 5.
Fabulous course! Such a shame for them it is so quiet but that suited me just fine.. If it was a little cheaper it may attract more players.
Golf is awesome and in great condition. Sunny and windy making it challenging. Great experience !
Course excellent. Staff friendly. All round great golf experience
The Course is fantastic. I played very good in my opinion it is not a difficult golf course. I am hp 10,5. I made 12 pars 2 double boggy, 3 bogies and one out. Green are good and fast. I highly recommend it.
Troia is a beautyful golfcourse. Very friendly staff and a unexpected golf expierience. Mostly flat but windy. Playing under palmtrees was very joyful and the greens were like deutsche Autobahn. Very fast. One thing i like to mention is the moscito Plaque. Bring some insect protection with you. There is none in the pro-shop.

Muy buen campo de golf. Complicado si no te mantienes en calle, rough de arena. Buena casa club pero mal servicio de cafetería, no había prácticamente nada para el desayuno, muy básico para la comida y sobretodo con personal muy poco preparado.
Everything handled fine
The course is very nice. We enjoyed a lot.
Great course, very and very fast service, couldn't be happier
Fantastic golfcourse with amazing views
Muy satisfactoria la jornada de golf. Campo con buenas vistas al océano Atlántico. Calles y greens muy bien cuidados. Campo de cierta dificultad con viento, sobre todo si te sales de calle, el rough es arena de playa y los greens están bien defendidos por bunquers. El personal en recepción es muy amable. En definitiva, muy recomendable.
Very nice and very challenging with west windy. Staff very friendly, nice pro shop and good restaurant .
Nice welcome. Buggy is quiet expensive, after 5 pm only small services in the club Restaurant, but the course was well prepared, has a good setup for all Kind of players and offers great views over the ocean
Très joli parcours dans un cadre exceptionnel. Hélas c'est un parcours qui ne pardonne aucune erreur puisqu'en dehors des fairway il n'y a que du sable. Dommage ????
Great course very testing golf
Bernt Ole Ørum-Petersen
Very nice course. Very nice lady-person in restaurant and good food. Best Ulla and Ole
Lovely golf course. Excellent service.
Troia ist one of the most beautiful Locations in Portugal. A wonderful course. We love it.
Staying in cascais it’s around 2 hrs to Tróia but well worth the trip the course was in great condition but really tuff,leave the fairway & your in sand
Troia is - next to Oitavos Dunes - the best course in the surroundings of Lisbon.
We very much enjoyed our golf today. It was a pleasure to play fairway woods off lovely grassy fairways. One does need to be accurate as there is so much sand around and not necessarily in the bunkers! A good test of golf. The staff were all delightful and so helpful - we give them five stars. The food and drink were much enjoyed, with a good choice from the menu, when we had a break after 9 holes, before continuing the back 9. Thank you Troia Golf for a lovely days golf.
We played Troia twice on our trip. We love this course but it stands up to its nickname 'Troia the destroyer'on a windy day. As always lovely helpful staff. We had a nice lunch sitting overlooking the first tee which was very tasty. We will be back
A great day out. We travelled by ferry from Setubal, which takes you across the very lovely Sado estuary. The clubhouse and practice facilities are of a very high standard; and the staff welcoming. The course is attractive and well maintained, with plenty of variety from hole to hole. It is ideal for golfers of all abilities. Very definitely a destination I would recommend.
Excellent, especially after the have built a new club house.
Fantastic course, one of the best we've ever played anywhere in the world. I couldn't praise it high enough.
Excitement builds as you board the ferry to Troia, This was a great start to the three rounds, with a fabulous lunch on the terrace. Quite a tough track first time out, with large waste areas of sand, but very playable with some thought. The greens were dreadful, which was very disappointing. Long grass, slow, uneven and a two putt on every green was about as good as it got. I would hesitate to recommend this course without knowing when the greens are in prime condition. The views and many of the holes were wonderful, such a shame the edge was taken off by the green conditions.
Franco Di Fonzo
Troia is for great players. This links it seems easy but is very taft. Sand on the side of the fairway give you the possibility of finding the ball, but is very delicate to come out.
Fantastic course. Real links near the ocean.
The best course we played - a formidable challenge - you need to stay positive - open to the wind with fabulous views, small greens, plenty of sand - very quiet - millionaires golf!
Douglas Graham Jones
It was good to return to Quinta do Peru. The course is still a challenge especially the second nine but I was disappointed by the scale of development which, for me detracted from the experience.
One word. Superb.
tough course,trouble with groups cutting on 10th having stopped for refreshments.long transfer with ferry.
Great experience but greens let it down.
Chez Carlos Golf Society
The Society travelled northwards on its annual trip away once again to the Costa Azul region of Lisbon. It was an early start after breakfast at Parkies Cafe for a mid-morning tee off at Troia. Currently ranked 32 in Continental Europe Troia holds the record that Sam Torrance was the only player to beat Par to win the Portuguese Open in 1983. Thomas Levet described it as ‘the toughest course in Europe’. Architect Robert Trent Jones built a masterpiece set amidst sandy dunes and towering pine trees on a coastal peninsular with spectacular views of the mountain range across the ocean. Small greens heavily guarded by large bunkers demand aerial approach shots. The course was in fighting form with the greens set at ‘12’ on the stimpmeter. Anything on the wrong side could result in the ball sliding off into the fringe and beyond. It was a day not for the faint hearted! Great course and well worth the effort getting there.
