Since Slovenia broke away from the former Yugoslavia in 1991, they have never looked back. Wedged in the heart of Europe between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, it’s hardly surprising that this beautiful country is doing very nicely thank you. Bled is perhaps the place to head if you’re a first time visitor to Slovenia, because it’s breathtakingly beautiful and perhaps the prettiest of all the Alpine resorts. Bled Lake with its island and mountain backcloth is a hard vista to beat.
Slovene golf history dates back to the 1930s and in those days the sport was the preserve of the Yugoslav Royal family and visiting gentry with the game focused intently on Bled. The Golf Association of Slovenia was founded in 1992 and there are currently thirteen Slovene golf courses and a growing local interest in the Royal & Ancient game. So we will watch Slovenia with curiosity and hope that golf continues to develop successfully.
