This breathtaking destination just outside of Bled described itself as 'Heaven on Earth', and after visiting in person it's difficult to disagree. Originally opened in 1937, when Slovenia was part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (hence the name), the course was redesigned in 1972 by famed golf architect Donald Harradine. In recent years it's undergone extensive improvements and upgrades, bringing to it a world class standard fit for royalty. The 18-hole Championship King's Course is quite challenging and plays host to a number of tournaments and other events during the season, while the 9-hole Lakes course is an easier option for those whose handicap doesn't make the cut, or whose wallet would prefer the lesser green fee. Club membership is invitation only, but the courses are regularly open to the general public with advanced booking, and playing a round here should be on any golfers bucket list.
