One of Portugal's most fascinating and challenging courses is located on the Troia Peninsula, right on the Costa Azul. Robert Trent Jones Sr. has created a true masterpiece here, perfectly integrated into the surrounding landscape.

Troia is considered the most difficult course in Portugal and holds numerous challenges. On the links course, the fairways are narrow, the greens small and protected by numerous bunkers. The largest bunker in Portugal is located here, catching those who stray from the right path, finding sand is the main obstacle of the course. However, the wild beauty of the area, the sparkling sea and the white sand generously compensate for what may be a mediocre score.
