Golf Grad Otočec

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 2005

Golf Grad Otočec is located near the city of Novo Mesto, halfway between Ljubljana and Zagreb. It is set within the rolling hills and pine forests of Slovenia's Dolenjska region. Much of the layout's challenge derives from the undulating terrain over which the predominantly tree-lined holes meander. Although the course is laid out close to the River Krka, none of the holes get you down to the river's edge.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLES: the par-3 5th hole is intimidatingly played across a deep valley, while the par-5 7th cuts its way through the pine trees at the highest point of the course.
