For such a small country, you can really find many golf courses in Slovenia. It has more than a dozen 9-hole and 18-hole golf courses, spread out through idyllic settings, making them amongst the most beautiful ones in Europe. The best thing is that, since Slovenia is so small, the distances between them are so short, that you can play every day on a different course. The golf history started here already in the 1930s, back then under the former country of Yugoslavia, but since 1992, the Golf Association of Slovenia has kept up with the golf culture.
