Golf To Go Ahead In Dubrovnik After Council’s Final Vote

Despite large protests outside the Dubrovnik City Council, which saw protestors against a proposed golf complex to be built on Srd hill block councillors entry into a council meeting to decide the fate of the project, it was voted that the Greg Norman-backed Golf Park Dubrovnik project in Dubrovnik will go ahead.

16 councillors voted ‘yes’, 7 ‘no’ and one abstained to the proposed urban plan on Tuesday evening, meaning the 1 billion euro project has now jumped the final hurdle after earlier gaining the majority vote in a public referendum held in the city. Golf Park Dubrovnik will see a 18 and 9 hole golf course built, along with a sports centre, hotel, tennis courts, horse-riding club, restaurants, galleries, cycling and running tracks, bars, parks and a state of the art golf club house on the cliff edge, 400m above sea level.

Those in opposition of the project say that they are not against the sport of golf, but are worried that the area will become over developed and will see uncontrolled development as in other parts of the Adriatic coast.
