Opened in 1980, TROIA RESORT’s 18-hole championship course is considered to be one of Portugal’s most fascinating and challenging layouts. Located at the tip of the Tróia Peninsula, on a long, sandy stretch of land, the course has distinct links feel, blending seamlessly with its natural sea-front landscape. Boasting magnificent sea views, the par-72 course, which measures 6,317 meters, winds its way through a combination of pine trees and wild plants, and features Robert Trent Jones Senior’s trademark small, narrow greens and bold bunkering. The course’s signature hole is the par-4 3rd. Hugging the coastline and commanding breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean, the acclaimed American architect has described this hole as “one of the best he has ever designed,” including it in his ideal 18-hole layout. The par-5 dogleg 18th with its elevated green, protected by three front bunkers, is also particularly memorable.
