‘Slovenia Plays Golf Program' is an initiative of the Slovenian Golf Association to promote the game in Slovenia and Hungary. This system has made playing golf more accessible by obtaining a license to play at 99€ which allows you to play at golf clubs. A newcomer will now be issued a 54 handicap after he completes a combination of golf rules and practical training.
Golf Association of Slovenia started this program in April 2011 in close cooperation with the Slovenian courts and certified teachers.
The program which only started in April already has 1800 new players enrolled around 18 centres. By the end of the year they expect atleast a 1000 players to become golf club members.
The Trnovo, Ljubljana golf course has been very successful with newcomers taking on this package.
