The Adriatic Golf Course, situated on the Istrian Peninsula is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Croatian coast. Near the small village of Savudrija, with panoramic views overlooking Portoroz, Piran, and Trieste and completed by the beautiful white outlines of the Austrian Alps. A professional golf course with 18 holes, 6.360 meters, PAR 72, and characterized by an interesting design that has been incorporated into the natural environment. These unique characteristics bring a challenge for players of all skills. On the Adriatic Golf Course, as well as most courses by the sea, the wind can add an additional challenge, along with strategically placed bunkers and skilfully crafted greens. The course delicately blends into the landscape, shaped tastefully into the rocks, and natural ponds with evergreen vegetation typical for the Mediterranean region. On every hole there are five different tee positions which provide additional challenge to players depending on which tee they decide to play from. Each hole has unique scenery and landscapes that are reflected in their descriptive names such as, Vineyard, Seaview, Olivetree, Romanic Church, and many more. The course was designed by golf architect Diethard Fahrenleitner and architect Barbara Eisserer to whom the Austrian “Golf Art Landscape” award has been awarded.
