As early as the beginning of the 20th century Brijuni had one of the largest golf courses in Europe. In 1922, the Austrian industrialist Karl Kupelwieser, owner of Brijuni at that time, had a golf course built, which at the beginning of the 1930s was additionally reconstructed. It was then an 18 hole golf course, 5,742 meters long. Owing to leading American and English architects it was continuously improved so that golf could be played only an hour or two after heavy rain.
This was the site where members of the European and world aristocracy participated in numerous tournaments, since at that time the Brijuni Islands were one of the leading fashionable resorts in this part of Europe.
The fascinating scenery, as well as the fact that you can play golf on the very coast under the crowns of centuries-old Mediterranean trees makes the game truly exceptional.
Today this is a partially reconstructed 9 hole golf course with sand greens in teeoffs. International tournaments are held again here and the reconstruction of the old 18 hole golf course is expected soon.
