British course architect Howard Swan with Slovene architect Peter Škofic.
3 km E of Otočec / 9 km NE of Novo Mesto.
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.
Pick of the 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.
Stay&Play at Grad Otočec: luxury nearby accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

The River Krka, which flows past the nearby castle-hotel and close to the golf course, is a tributary of the River Sava, which rises in the mountainous northwest of Slovenia. After completing its 992 km (616 mi) journey, the Sava joins into the River Danube in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.
