The Challenge Tour visits one of its most popular destinations this week with the BTC Slovenian Open Championship starting in Bled on Thursday.
Set against a backdrop of a magnificent mountain range, the river, and with Lake Bled close by, the venue offers a superb atmosphere to play tournament golf.
A year ago the Championship was won by Warren Bennett, the second of the five titles that were snapped up by the Watford man on his way to topping the rankings with a record £81,000.
Bennett carded a closing 70 for 22-under-par 270 and a three-shot victory over Marc Pendaries of France, also with 70, and Sweden's Mikael Lundberg, who shot 69.
Lundberg says Bled is his favourite venue on the Challenge Tour. "It is the most beautiful place with the mountains and the river while the course is also nice to play," he says.
"It is a par 73 but plays easier than that. All the par-fives are reachable in two while the greens are usually in great condition. I'm looking forward to going back there."
With most of the leading players on the rankings in action in the Rolex event in Geneva, only Markus Brier, currently fourth, Didier de Vooght, sixth, and Bradley Dredge, eighth, are in Slovenia chasing a top prize of over 11,000 euro.
