In Riccione proper there are no major golf clubs and courses, but playing golf is possible in the surroundings of the resort. Riviera Golf Resort and Rimini Golf Club are the chief opportunities one should take in order to be able to indulge in their favorite activity. These clubs are notable not only due to the fact they are the only two opportunities in the area, but also because they observe high standards of professionalism and are nationwide golf landmarks.
Riviera Golf Resort is located in San Giovanni in Marignano, some 10 kilometers southeast from Riccione, at a short distance from both Misano Adriatico and Cattolica.
Riviera Golf Resort complies with the needs of both beginners and skilled players, but the club has always respected the environment. This is why the way the course lay-out has been conceived, with its tracks and specific amenities, is in complete harmony with the nature set, as if the course is an integral part of the environment. But this is no surprise, since the course is maintained and managed by the University of Agronomy of Milan.
Rimini Golf Club is, despite the distance between Riccione and the venue, a top alternative for playing golf not only for tourists visiting the Adriatic Riviera, but for all keen players in Italy.
