Dunas Golf Course - Terras da Comporta

A brand-new golf course located in the tranquil village of Comporta, just an hour south of Lisbon and on the edge of the Sado Estuary, the brand-new Dunas Golf Course by Terras da Comporta is set to open in the summer of 2023.

Designed by the renowned golf architect David McLay-Kidd and inspired by the Links courses of his native country, Scotland, the course will be constructed over 38.4 hectares of land and will integrate into Comporta's beautiful natural landscape of picturesque beaches and lush pine forests.

Sustainability is one of the main goals of the Terras da Comporta project, and the Dunas Golf Course is being designed with a low water consumption green and a sophisticated computerised watering system, supplied by water from ETAR.


Troia Golf

Located between Sado Estuary and Arrábida Mountain, Troia Golf Championship Course is an 18-hole and 72 parcourse that stretches 6,317 metres along the beach, with magnificent views over the sea.

Designed by the North American golf architect Robert Trent Jones Senior, Troia Golf was elected in 2011 by Rolex as one of the best golf courses in the world and is listed in The Rolex World’s Top 1,000 Golf Courses guide. Also, in 2019, the magazine Golf World rated TROIA GOLF the 8th top golf course of the whole of Continental Europe.

Robert Trent Jones Senior selected hole 3 of Troia’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.

Hole 3, a par 4 that fits perfectly in the landscape with a magnificent sea view, was considered by Robert Trent Jones Senior one of the best he has ever designed, and he included it in his ideal 18-hole golf course.

Hole 18 is a par 5 left dogleg, with an elevated green and protected by three front bunkers. 


Accommodation:  The Editory By The Sea, Troia - Comporta

The rooms are booked on a B&B twin / double basis for 4 nights arriving on Friday 6th October and checking out on Tuesday 10th October 2023.


The Editory By The Sea is located in Troia, south of Lisbon. The Troia Peninsula is one of the most beautiful coastlines of Portugal, with a 20km stretch of pristine sands, crystal clear waters and pine forested sand dunes.

The northern tip of Troia exudes sophistication and class, with fine dining, modern bars, and a grand casino complex. Troia has a reputation for exclusivity and wealth but is a peaceful and scenic stretch of coastline which is easily accessible from Setubal due to the regular and inexpensive ferry service.

The hotel is perfectly situated being a 3 min drive to the Troia Golf, 5 min walk to the beach, 8 min walk to the marina and casino, and has plenty of activities nearby such as water sports, bike rides, boat rides, horseback riding, and bird watching.
