Although it has traditionally been considered to be a sport for the richer classes, golf has recently become popular in Croatia. More and more people are choosing it as their ideal form of recreation and relaxation in natural surroundings. Although Croatia at the moment doesn’t have an 18 hole golf course, asides from the one in Brijuni National Park and a few private courses, as well as a few smaller 9 hole courses, it aims to become a significant golfing destination on the eastern Adriatic due to its ideal countryside and gentle climate.
