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 1930’s was added to. 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 even an hour or two after heavy rain.
Unlike most golf courses in Europe, here golf can be played all year round. The temperature is always pleasant, since even in January it rarely drops below Zero. In winter the cold wind Bora sometime blows, but this will not stop you from enjoying your game. Depending on the amount of rain in summer the grass sometimes turns yellow, however the local rule (moving the ball is allowed) enables you to continue playing golf!
