Troia Golf

Troia GC- hole 1 back teeTroia GC- hole 1 back tee 

 Troia Golf Club is located on an incredibly tight parcel of land on a sandy spit/peninsula close to Lisbon.

Golfers can journey to the course by catching a ferry from Lisbon.

It's an amazing location for a golf course- surrounded by sand and water and with the skyscrapers of Lisbon as a background

 

The course was designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones (Snr) and opened for play in 1980.

It is a typical RTJ course with elevated greens stoutly defended by a host of bunkers that demand a well flighted approach.

And some of those greens are quite small targets!

Exposed sand and umbrella pines frame most of the fairways- it is only holes 3, 4, & 17 which play in the sandy terrain beachside of the trees.

The remainder thread their way through mature age pines with clusters of bunkers threatening at every turn.

 

Notable holes include: 

 

- hole 1, a strong par 5 to start with a sensational opening tee shot from the back pegs (see pic top of page)

- hole 3, a short par 4 which demands a decision as to line off the tee
