Also, in 2011, the magazine Golf World rated TROIA GOLF the 32nd top golf course of the whole of Continental Europe.
Robert Trent Jones Senior selected hole 3 of Tróia’s golf course as one of the best he has ever designed, and included it in his list of ideal 18-hole courses.
There are two holes worth mentioning in particular – no. 3 and no. 18:
