To play golf on Slovenia’s golf courses is to travel around the country’s different landscapes. Are you in for a game of golf with a view of Alpine summits, for a game on the vast Pannonian fields, or are you more interested in a round or two amidst wine-growing hills? Don’t worry, since distances in Slovenia are small, you can readily enjoy all major courses during your stay.

Slovenia’s golf courses, catering for beginners and experienced players alike, are located in different parts of the country, but wherever they are you can admire natural splendours while taking a relaxing stroll on the fairways … From the capital city of Ljubljana you can reach as much as 3 golf courses in a matter of minutes, but otherwise the majority of courses is located in attractive tourist resorts, where your golf vacations can be accompanied by an inviting wellness offer, bike ride, or the highest-quality culinary experience, etc.

If you follow the links below, you can obtain more information about golf courses, check concrete packages, and additional offer, or form your own green and white vacations of this summer.

There are more than ten courses to choose from. Take a look at our top ten tips for this summer:

Bled – the oldest course in Slovenia, built in 1938 and considered to be one of the most beautiful in Europe. The stunning landscape and the special design of the course are a challenge for everyone. You can choose between the 18-hole King’s Course and the 9-hole Lake Course.

Lipica – the only golf course in Slovenia open all year round. In the shade of mighty oak trees in the idyllic Karst you can play nine holes of golf in the world-famous Lipizzaner stud farm. There is a hotel and casino attached to the course.

Volčji Potok Arboretum Golf course – the course lies among small lakes set in a pine forest. The view of the Kamnik Alps and the immediate vicinity of the Arboretum guarantee a wonderful experience. The invigorating 18-hole course will challenge the finest players.

Mokrice – the course is set on the rolling hills around the beautiful Mokrice Castle, where guests can stay overnight. The touch of the Mediaeval and the tranquillity of the castle park create a unique charm. For further relaxation you can visit the nearby resort of Terme Čatež.

Moravske Toplice – situated in idyllic Prekmurje, with its thermal spring waters. Inexperienced players can take lessons and practice on the driving range and putting green. More-seasoned golfers can test themselves on the 18-hole course, or compete in organised tournaments.

Ptuj – the best-kept 18-hole course in Slovenia. The water hazards are the main threat, requiring composure from all players. For even greater enjoyment, take a stroll around the old town centre and visit the majestic Mediaeval castle and the winery.

Slovenske Konjice – the Zlati Grič 9-hole course lies in a valley surrounded by vineyards, and is dotted with streams, ponds, and forests. After a good round you can relax with a glass of fine wine and good local food in the nearby restaurant.

Podčetrtek/Olimje – the 18-hole Olimje course in Podčetrtek offers amazing sand traps and natural water hazards, and is situated just 3km from the resort of Terme Olimia. The hospitality of the locals and the beautiful countryside will make you feel wonderful.

Otočec – Slovenia’s newest course has nine holes, and has been designed in line with all the latest standards. It is very close to the famous Otočec Castle, which lies on the island on the river Krka.

Bovec - the course is located in the area where scenes from the film The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian were filmed. Hit Holidays Golf Club Bovec, at the foot of Mount Kanin, reaches all the way to this fabulous land. The views of the surrounding mountains and the unspoilt natural environment you can experience here give the course its special charm and spirit. The nine-hole par 36 course (3,012 metres) is built and maintained to GEO environmental standards for golf courses.

Trnovo (Ljubljana) – designed for all golfers and golf lovers, this course does not require a permit to play on. All nine holes have artificial tees for beginners. After your round you can explore the capital or hit the shops.

Diners Ljubljana - wonderfully arranged and well-maintaned 18-hole folf course situated in the village of Smlednik under the Šmarna Gora hill, at a distance of slightly less than 10 kilometres from the Ljubljana city centre as well as the central Slovenian airport. It is distinguished for fast greens, god fairways and wide teeing areas.

Slovenia’s golf courses cater for beginners and experienced players alike. Lessons are available for beginners, children, and anyone else who wants to improve their skills, both one-on-one lessons and group lessons. Slovenia also has a number of driving ranges for those who want to work on their shots.

The Slovenian golf offer is also a part of the joint offer of three countries – in addition to Slovenia, also the Italian Friuli-Venezia Giulia and the Austrian Carinthia, which together provide more than 300 courses and thus represent an invincible challenge to your golfing skills. The countries are joined together under the Playing Together project.
