Jack Nicklaus and the world’s leading golf course design firm were chosen to bring to life the first integrated resort and Croatia to consist of a luxury hotel that will include a spa, wellness center and meeting facilities; a variety of residential offerings totaling more than 460 units; a 350-berth marina; and an 18-hole Croatia golf course. Porto Mariccio Resort, which is being developed by the real-estate investment firm AB Maris, will be situated between the town of Rovinj and Pula, and near the archipelago of the Brijuni Islands.

The Croatian government applauded such investment and encourages other investors with a multiple approach, such as golf courses combined with hotels and other facilities.

There are 23 golf Croatia golf courses planned for, 14 of which will be in Istria. The head of tourism in Istria, Denis Ivošević, sees great development to the country’s future and emphasizes that those 14 courses are either being planned or developed.
