The pristine nature of Slovenia makes it an attractive landscape for playing golf. Though it is very popular among locals, golf is also an important part of the tourist industry and is attracting more and more foreign players every day. Overall there are 18 golf courses in Slovenia and Culture Trip has selected six of the best.

1. Royal Golf Bled

1. Royal Golf Bled

Royal Golf Bled is the oldest and the largest golf course in Slovenia. The first round of golf was played on this beautiful golf course in 1937. Located close to the Slovenia’s crown jewel of tourist attractions, Lake Bled, this golf course has been a popular destination for local and foreign golfers. Royal Golf Bled was reopened in August 2017, after a two-year renovation process, and is now considered one of the best golf courses in Europe.

2. Golf Otočec Castle

2. Golf Otočec Castle

Located by the Krka river, Golf Otočec Castle is one of the longest golf courses in the country. The outstanding design of the course is a product of the collaboration between Howard Swan, a world-renowned golf course designer, and Slovenian designer Peter Škofic. After a round of golf, players can relax at the nearby Otočec Castle, where they can indulge in the culinary delights of the castle’s restaurant.

It is only a short ride from Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, to get to the Arboretum Ljubljana Golf Course. Since 1998, players have enjoyed rounds of golf on this course from March until mid-November. The fact that Arboretum Ljubljana is considered one of the most versatile golf courses, and that it offers stunning views of the Julian Alps, are the main reasons why this 18 hole golf course is one of the most popular in Slovenia.
