Brtonigla – Golfers in ‘Friars’ Forest’ by 2012
The construction of the first phase of the golf resort Biska Golf Istria in Fratarska Suma (Friars Forest), opposite the auto- camp Park Umag in the Istrian Borough of Brtonigla, situated between Umag and Novigrad, will begin in the spring. Predicted in the first phase, worth 60 million euros, is the construction of golf courses with 18 holes on 59 acres, about 80 villas form 350-450 square meters and a golf club house as well as the accompanying buildings with related infrastructure.

Investors from the company Golf Istria Magica plan to start the construction in April 2011 and the first phase should be completed in October or November 2012. Planned for the final phase is the building of the hotel which will bring the total value of the project to around 100 million euros. In total, this resort on 76 acres of land will provide 540 beds.

Six person villas will be located on eight and a half acres of land and will be built on the principle of "smart" low-energy houses which will use renewable energy sources. The entire resort will produce 85-90% of the energy needed for its operation.

Investors took special care of rational usage of water, so the courses will be waterd with recycled wastewater from the buildings and precipitation water from the roads, terraces, rooftops and grounds of the resort.

The golf-course, on which both professionals and amateurs will be able to play, was designed by a London company European Golf Design.

Brtonigla is a village built on a picturesque hill, on the site of a former ‘gradine’ or stone fortress. After the Roman conquest, the fortresses grew into towns and then feudal castles. Even today this entire area is rich in remains of prehistoric settlements from the Bronze Age, which have been declared cultural monuments.
Brtonigla was first mentioned in written documents in 1234, as Ortoneglo, Roman Hortus Niger (Black Garden), a name that was probably given to it after the type of soil found there.

Located in the area of Brtonigla is Mramornica, one of the largest caves in Istria.
