Technical perfection

The fact that golfers use every single club in their bag when playing here demonstrates how varied and diverse the terrain is. It's no surprise that golfers keep coming back to this course.

“I’ve been to some of the finest golfing venues around the World and this is right up there with the best of them. We play some great courses on the European Tour, but this is very special and could host a European Tour event tomorrow – if not a Ryder Cup!”

 

Sam Torrance, the 2002 Ryder Cup Captain 

"The golf course was like a sleeping beauty which had been neglected over many years. We wanted to wake it up and present it to the whole World like a jewel and a great addition to European golf. We are honoured that HRH Princess Elizabeth has bestowed on us Royal Status, and delighted that she was able to join us today in celebrating the rebirth of this great Club.”" 

 

Gordana Šolak, owner of Royal Bled

The Legendary Donald Harradine

The full 18 hole layout was completed in 1938 but was sadly abandoned soon after due to the onset of the Second World War. After extensive redesign and renovation by the legendary Donald Harradine, the course reopened in 1972 to widespread acclaim with golfconnoisseurs from around the world declaring it to be one of the most beautiful in Europe. 

History

Host of many major tournaments

In the past, Bled Golf Course has hosted many major amateur and professional tournaments which is a true testament to the layout and challenge that it presents. Events include the European Boys’ Team Championships, PGA European Challenge Tour and also International European Mid-Amateur Championships.

History

Fit for Royalty

In 2015 an extensive renovation of both the Kings Course and Kings House was undertaken with the aim of restoring the Clubs reputation as a place for fit for Royalty. Two years later, in 2017, Ryder Cup legends Sam Torrance OBE and Costantino Rocca joined the celebrations to mark the return of this iconic venue. The recent changes have been recognised and endorsed by the Royal Karađorđević family and with this the golf club is now graciously known as Royal Bled.
