At the moment, Serbia is not home to an 18-hole golf course, however there are numerous plans afoot which look set to make the popularity of golf in Serbia really take off!

With the epic scenery that Serbia has to offer, there is so much potential for golf in the country - can you imagine playing in the heart of the Balkans with the monstrous mountains as a backdrop and having to navigate around the Danube in the beautiful climate? Quite a thought indeed! The only problem with new projects is the difficulty of finding out who owns the site.

Golf Club Centar is currently a 9-hole course, but there is a major development in process to transform it to a first-class 18-hole golf course with a hotel as well. The golf club also hopes to open up a golf academy to inspire the younger generation.

The other golf course in Serbia is located in the capital, Belgrade.  Golf Club Belgrade is a 9-hole parkland course with a par of 34. The golf course is relatively small with four par 3's amongst the nine holes. There are a lot of risk and reward shots throughout the golf course and it can be a challenge for both the long and short games of all abilities.

The course is also home to a driving range and top of the range indoor simulator which can be used all year round!

Away from the golf, there's a lot to do and see. Serbia is home to some picturesque villages and vibrant cities, beautiful  castles and  medieval monastries. In the summer, Ada Giganlija is a brilliant place to visit in Belgrade; known as, 'the sea of Belgrade' the area is home to numerous sporting facilities from football pitches to tennis courts and there is always someone looking for a game of something! 

The country's continental climate makes it brilliant for golf. The hot summers, with occasional rainfall, keeps the courses in the best possible condition. The golfing season lasts from March to November but the courses are open all year round - although if it has snowed then it's best to call and check if the greens are playable.

More than 20 airlines have connections with Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, Serbia's main airport which is located around 20 km south from the city centre. From the airport, the number 72 bus goes to the centre and is found on the departures level of the airport. Taxi's and a minibus service for larger groups are also available but a bit mre expensive.

There are also numerous international trains daily from eight countries that connect with Serbia. Many are overnight trains which include a bed and breakfast! The Beograd-Bar route is regarded as one of the most scenic routes in Europe; the line is also home to the highest railway bridge in the world, Mala Rijeka and there are spectacular views of the Dinar mountains.

With the two courses in Serbia at the moment being within 20km of Belgrade, getting around is pretty easy as taxis are reliable and there are a few buses which connects the golf club and city centre.

Serbia is becoming a really popular tourist destination due to its fantastic atmosphere and beautiful little villages and cities. Golf in Serbia is also expanding, with some ambitious plans in development to make the country a real force on the golfing circuit. The two golf courses in the country currently provide an enjoyable and challenging experience for golfers of all abilities and tastes but more variety is needed before Serbia becomes a viable destination for a golfing holday.
