After the First World War, the then Yugoslav King Aleksander Karađorđević chose Bled as his summer residence, attracting wealthy guests and nobility from all over Europe. The first round of golf was officially played at Bled in 1937 and this marked the birth of golf in the region. 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. 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.
The King’s Course at Royal Bled is undoubtedly one of the most exhilarating and beautiful places to play golf anywhere in the world. Surrounded by the dramatic mountains and sweeping valleys of the Alps, the course offers perfectly manicured surfaces, a strategic layout and a rare opportunity to play golf in complete tranquillity. After a two year renovation its reputation has continued to spread with Golf World Magazine quickly returning it to its envied list of Top 100 Golf Courses in Continental Europe. A challenge to both elite and recreational players, the King’s Course can now once again be regarded as one of Europe’s true golfing gems.
Originally designed by Donald Harradine, the Lake’s Course at Royal Bled is the perfect blend of spectacular ROYAL BLED views and challenging holes played through more of the undulating land at Royal Bled. Ideally suited to all levels of ability, the course retains its original layout and offers a serene woodland setting which promotes a relaxed private environment for golfers to enjoy.
The King’s House, originally built in 1938, is a testament to regional Slovenian architecture and its unmistakable facade speaks clearly of its time and place. Following its extensive renovation, the King’s House has been restored to its original grandeur and the refined interiors, open fires and comfortable furniture create a unique and familiar atmosphere that encourages guests to linger, relax and enjoy the unrivalled surroundings.
Inspired by local, seasonal ingredients and with a focus on modern, regional and international dishes, dining at Royal Bled is an integral part of the experience. From relaxed, outdoor dining on the expansive terrace overlooking the course, to a more refined ambience in the unique glass fronted restaurant, there is a place and menu to suit all occasions.
Ten timelessly styled rooms are available within the Clubhouse each offering their own distinctive tone but all with the same sense of grandeur and elegance. Private terraces offer views over the golf course and warm, traditional furnishings create a cosy feel from home.
