Troia Championship Golf Course
The Troia Championship Golf Course was designed by the famous American golf architect Robert Trent Jones Senior, and was voted 25th best European Golf Course by Golf World in 2003.
This challenging course was opened in 1980 and has hosted a number of international tournaments including the European Ladies Team Championship 1981, the Portuguese Open Championship 1983, Troia Ladies Master 1991, Costa Azul Ladies Open 1996, and the 15th International European Amateurs Championship 2002.
The front nine has a scenic run of beautiful ocean Greens, with Trent Snr himself suggesting that the third would be included within his preferred eclectic course of all times. The course which is one of the most challenging in Portugal juxtaposes the Atlantic Ocean with gentle sounds of rolling waves and flowered fragrant breezes filling the air as you play.
You are privileged by the vista to the awe inspiring range of Arrabida Mountains and nature reserve to the north, with the Atlantic Ocean off to the west. If you decide to relax at the Club house after the game then you may bear witness to the magical sunset as it soothes into the ocean or disappears behind the Arrabida range, depending upon which time of the year you are visiting.
The course with her small greens and defensive bunkers provides a challenge for the lesser golfer whilst offering an excellent opportunity for the more experienced to excel. The course is decorated with old Oaks, an abundance of wild and indigenous plant life and more recently planted trees of pines.
The Club with its rustic appearance has been constructed out of timber with a steel frame green roof which blends naturally into the wooded background. The Clubhouse boasts excellent views to the sea, as well as offering, a reception area, pro-shop, bar, restaurant and terrace with views to last Green, with practice facilities including two Putting Greens, Chipping and Bunker areas and Driving Range.
The Championship Course provides 18 holes for a Par of 72 and is 6’320 metres or 6’914 yards. The course record was set by Danish golfer, Jeppe Huldahl who hit a 67 at the European Amateurs Championship in 2002.
