TROIA LINKS LEAPS INTO EUROPE’S TOP 10 P ortugal’s Troia Resort has further established itself among Europe’s elite golf courses by making an impressive nine-place climb to number eight in Golf World’s prestigious ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in Continental Europe 2019’ rankings. The stunning Robert Trent Jones Senior links made a sensational ascent up the rankings into Europe’s top 10, as golfers and industry experts finally rightly acknowledge one of Portugal’s best-kept secrets. Troia’s new ranking puts it among the top two in Portugal – an amazing feat considering the 6

www.exclusivegolfandtravel.co.uk

standard of golf courses across the country. The par-72 layout stretches 6,317m along the beach, offering panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Arrábida mountain range throughout the 18 holes. But it’s not just the picturesque scenery that makes it one of Europe’s best. The challenging and diverse holes test even the top pros, as players are required to play a multitude of shots through a combination of pine trees and indigenous coastal plants, on a course with small, narrow greens and bold bunkering. When announcing Troia’s impressive rise up the rankings, the Golf World judging panel remarked: “Troia comes with a fearsome ISSUE 10


PORTUGAL

reputation, but it’s as honest as you get. The course zigzags across the northern slice of a peninsula, subjecting you to different wind directions and changes in topography and vistas. “It’s an entertaining layout over a fairly compact piece of land that rewards sharp course management and approach play.” Located just an hour south of Lisbon on a beautiful sand-skirted peninsula, Troia’s excellent location is just a 15-minute unique ferry ride from Setúbal city centre, which is filled with a wide range of highly regarded and affordable restaurants, and just a short distance from Comporta – one of the trendiest, and most sought-after, destinations for Europe’s travelling cognoscenti.

V

attanac Golf Resort, one of the most anticipated properties in Asia, has become the second Cambodian venue to join the Faldo Design portfolio, following the opening of the East Course. Measuring over 7,500 yards, the golf course has unique design features taking inspiration from the Bayon temple at Siem Reap, as well as actual on-course replicas of other pre-Angkorian structures, including the Preah Vihear and Angkor Wat, one of the largest religious monuments in the world. The design sets the innovation standard for golf in Cambodia, offering a unique combination of culture, leisure, and golf. Located only 20 kilometres from the centre of Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital, this is the first of two unique championshipstandard golf courses that will sit at the

12

www.exclusivegolfandtravel.co.uk

heart of the luxury resort, with the West Course set to be completed later this year. Over the past decade, Cambodia has come into its own among Southeast Asia golf destinations, pairing championshipquality courses alongside the rich cultural attractions of the ancient Khmer civilizations, in addition to leisure activities and historical tours. Local identity was the focus for Sir Nick Faldo and his team during the design phase of this project. The end result is therefore made all the more impressive by the fact that during the first site visit, there was nothing but flat, featureless land within clay basins, requiring large scale earthworks that were initially hampered by severe flooding in 2013, delaying the East Course’s construction. Sir Nick Faldo commented: “I’m very proud to finally see this course open for play, delivering on the bold development vision we were tasked with. After what ISSUE 10


was a detailed and bespoke creative design process, I am confident it will offer a strategic and memorable test to players of all standards and I look forward to seeing the impact it makes on the region’s golfing landscape.� Since the opening of the East Course in May, it has become clear that Vattanac will eventually become a key competitor to Faldo’s additional Cambodian design, the award-winning Angkor Golf Resort in Siem Reap. Including one of the best clubhouses in Cambodia, the Vattanac Golf Resort development master plan will also eventually see the addition of residential villas, a resort hotel, retail shops, an international school, and other sports and recreation facilities in order to attract international visitors.

EQUIPMENT REVIEW

BUSHNELL PHANTOM GOLF GPS T

he Phantom GPS from Bushnell stands out from its competitors in a marketplace which is packed with products to satisfy the needs for golfers quest for lower scores. From the moment my Phantom arrived it oozes quality. The design is similar to the Neo Ghost model a previous model by Bushnell. With other GPS products ive used in the past the switch-on and setup has been quite a challenge but with the Phantom it’s pretty much ready to go out of the box. The free Bushnell App which you download to your Apple or Android phone is a superb tool which runs alongside the Phantom and comes with really usefull functions including hole fly overs and the ability to keep tally of your shots and putts. The Phantom comes preloaded with 36,000+ courses in more than 30 countries and includes either a clip attachment or a built-in magnet to attach right to your trolley or golf cart and a USB charger. So the Phantom’s first outing was at Burnham and Berrow Golf Club in Somerset, one of the UK’s best links courses and how grateful I was for having it. With blind shots on quite a few holes the combination of the easy to read Phantom along with the ability to measure distances to up to four hazzards and a hole fly over on the app gives you the conifdence you’ve pulled the right club from your

42

www.exclusivegolfandtravel.co.uk

bag and allows you to concentrate on your swing. I’ve been using a laser rangfinder for a couple of years now but on this occasion the only time it came out of the bag was to compare yardage readings and the Phantom’s distances was on the money everytime. One of the best features of this product is its simplicity. It doesn’t over complicate things and it makes it very easy to give you the information you need most: the distance to the front, back and centre of the greens. The GPS unit is small. The screen size might only be 1.4 x 1.4 inches on the 2.3 x 2.3 inch size face, but that’s what makes it so easy to have and carry around. A superb bite magnetic system makes this handheld easy to use from your golf buggy frame attached to your trolley or as i used clipped to the inside of my pocket. With online prices currently around £89.00 – £99.00 this is a great purchase for a mid to high handicap golfer. Simple to set up, simple to use, simple to read if only my swing was so simple to master!
