Slovenia is not a country with a rich golf history, but it provides "one of the most dramatic backdrops on our list," CNN says.

Bled is in the company of golf greats such as St Andrews in Scotland, Trump National Golf Club in California and the Emirates Golf Club in Dubai.

A total of 19 golf courses made the list, of which 13 are in the US, two in the UK, and one each in the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, Spain and Slovenia.

The entries were selected by CNN readers and the most influential golf Instagrammers.

Royal Bled has recently become the only Slovenian golf course to have made it to Golf World Magazine's top 100 European golf courses.
