Golf Park Dubrovnik, a golf complex, which will consist of a hotel, spa, private 18-hole course, a public six- to nine-hole course designed for beginners, and a Greg Norman-branded practice center, has for the second time had its Environmental Impact Study rejected.
A Ministry of Environment and Nature Commission, which assesses Environmental Impact Studies, rejected the study and it has again been sent back for review. Famous Australian golfer Greg Norman was in Croatia back in 2009 pitching his proposal for the golf complex to be built on Srd hill, overlooking the city of Dubrovnik. Since 2003 there have been developers interested in building a golf complex on Srd but to no avail.
“If the expert committee decided that there are serious shortcomings that can not be repaired within the first 30 days, it had to reject the study in order to meet regulations on the assessment of environmental impact,” says Enes Cerimagic, a lawyer the group Green Action, after yesterday’s decision.
