A hidden gem

This is a wonderful course with several holes very similar to those found on Troon or Turnberry. Some greens are little more than the size of a squash court perched on small sand dunes. The course is well bunkered and has tight fairways often lined by pine trees, although trees many have died in recent years to some blight/insect.

We have been playing there for over 10 years and it still ranks in my top 10 of mainland European courses - it is a true golfers golf course and will not disappoint. Highly recommended and well worth the journey across the estuary - as a result it is often very quiet.

Excellent golf course

My wife and I played this course the first time. It is an excellent course designed by Robert Trent Jones sen. From the start up we enjoyed this course. Some holes have an nice view over the Atlantic ocean and if the wind blows it is a real challange. If you will think this course is easy try it from the white tee boxes if it is windy. The greens are small and very hard to reach because bunkers protect the greens everywhere.
It is a must play course if you are in this area or if you are not shy to drive down from Lisbon (use only the road or try the ferry from Setabul). Takes nearly 1:30 on the highway but it is worth this drive.

Great course

Played 24.03.2018.
For the season in very good condition. Very good layout, some greens very difficult.
Beautiful views of the sea, by the location but also wind-prone and therefore blown the balls, but you can find them well.
Service good and nice.
Overall, with the best course I have played in Portugal.
Getting there by ferry should be done (when to go by ferry to the golf course).

Exceptional location with interesting arrival by ferry

Well maintained club, nice atmosphere, trains partly along the sea.
Driver not always required, not unusually long, but sometimes tricky dog ​​legs. Please stay with Cart on the fairway, the sand could otherwise mutate into quicksand.
Very good greens, we were fortunate to be able to play the course almost alone.
The place is also a pleasure even if your own game does not work., Dunes and so broom stuff next to it, but not unfair. Balls are to be found if times no fairways splitter is.
Only criticism. No length information on the side, and so we were doomed to appreciate. no matter on vacation, some ground mark was still present.
The restaurant reviews have us moved not stop.

Should one have played when choosing Lisbon surroundings as a golf destination.
Is a European Golf Destination and therefore very favorable for us to play.

Nice change offers the arrival by ferry.
Only if I want to stay there for a week on the Habinsel?
Difficult to say, it was out of season

Overall: Should one have traveled and played. At least once in his golfing career

Beautiful Dunes Course catastrophic Restaurant Service

Are extra from our holiday home in Quinta Thurs. Lago arrived and wanted the acclaimed play Trent Jones course. The beautiful dunes space corresponded fully to the many positive reviews. However-according to a bitter aftertaste interfered stake. Despite multiple complain the staff of the clubhouse restaurant we have not been served well by about 1.2 hours and went without the usual for a Golspiel drinking and eating at our 220 km trip home to QdL.
Just a shame so we can Troia Golf Club only recommended for those who live nearby and do not rely on the Club Restaurant.

Wonderful area

Because I would give around Lisbon all new courses played 4 or 5 stars, Praia d'el Rey and deserve Troia actually 6 stars. Clean, not too fast greens; quite a lot of interesting, the greens defending bunkers, as well as the infinite waste areas make the place absolutely attractive. Conclusion: Great Dunes course and nearby beautiful nature reserve with rare flora and fauna. The 25 minute ferry ride from Setubal by car and four people for 26 € I tend to see it as favorable.

In addition to Royal Obidos the best place to Lisbon's coasts

The first nine holes are top notch, especially the third hole, a par 4 with offset fairway. Trent Jones Sr. considered it as the best par 4 which he has ever designed. The back nine to fall somewhat but the holes by the sea compensate again and when you get the last Drive from white through the trees of the day is saved. Sometimes necessarily the first tee of white across the lake to risk! The site offers many variations, magnificent views and was not very busy in Oct.. Be sure to play !! (If you do not want to take the ferry, you can also drive around the outside, very scenic).

About greenfee providers also reserve relatively cheap. Clubhouse one can give oneself, no good food, bad service and overpriced in my opinion, the Secretariat but very friendly!

Unique location

On the way from the Algarve to Lisbon Airport we made a stopover here and did not regret it. The seafront location is unique. Some of the greens are protected by bunkers, necessitating accurate approach shots. The long hole 18 with the elevated green is then the final challenge that must be mastered. The place was in a very good condition. Unfortunately, we were playing at a time where there was a plague of flies and a quiet game made it almost impossible.

One of the best!

This old Dunes Course from the pen by the legendary Robert Trent Jones sen., Is for me one of the best places in Europe!
The entire island is an experience and the place even a single feast for the eyes! Troy is in the Top 3 of Portugal!

Super Site

We traveled from the Algarve to play this course. Even on arrival, you will see many dunes and already suspects what's coming. Situated on the seafront you gets the wind first hand also. We played with a storm that does actually have a golf game almost impossible. The place was well maintained and had great fun. The long journey was worth it.
