For years we’ve been singing the praises of Montenegro, the tiny little jewel of a country on the Adriatic Sea. First Amanresorts embarked on a fabulous renovation project (the Aman Sveti Stefan now occupies an ancient village on a small coastal island), then other ultra-luxe hotel brands followed suit (think One&Only and Regent) in announcing developments. Last October we posed the question: could this be the hottest European destination of the moment?
In news out of Montenegro, we hear that the country now has its very own golf course, with none other than Russian Prince Dimitri Romanoff as its patron. At the end of August 2013, the Royal Montenegro Golf & Country Club unveiled its facilities, including a driving range and a putting and pitching green with three types of bunkers. The 18-hole championship Tivat Golf Course is expected to be completed in 2016, and then major tournaments will be held there. There will also be a dedicated Golf Academy with expert coaches.
