Slovenia is the cleanest country and Royal Bled Golf Club is very pristine. Maintenance crew members are loaned to professional venues, even the Masters.
The views are distracting but pay attention to distances with elevated tee boxes and water hazards. The full 18-hole course is complemented by the very hilly 9-hole Lakes Course. Sand in bunkers is sculptured like a work of art, several heart-shaped like the wooden shutters framing the windows on the sweet alpine restrooms.
Old, ornate faucets deliver pure alpine water.
Guests are treated like royalty at Royal Bled and receive a personalized locker card. Limited bedrooms are available to stay on property.
The suite above the clubhouse is simply precious with a claw tub in the living room under sky lights for a sultry soak after an active day of golf, e-biking or hiking around Lake Bled, one of the most photographed spots on earth.
