Indeed the IAGTO - the International Association of Golf Tour Operators has voted Bulgaria as the 'Undiscovered Golf Destination of the Year 2012' - quite an accolade to have, but when you read on and discover the quality that exists on the many golf courses of Bulgaria you will understand why.

Golfing in Bulgaria

Over many years tourism in Bulgaria has concentrated on its superb summer beach or winter ski programmes and does not have a long golf history, but the speed in which the sport has developed in recent years has destined the country to become a favourite golf destination for tourists from all over the world.

Today, with investment in state of the art facilities, the game of golf is now firmly on Bulgaria tourist map. One major factor that has contributed to its rise in popularity is the stunning natural surroundings within which the courses have been developed.

The golf resorts in Cape Kaliakra, North Eastern Bulgaria are built along the Black Sea Coast where white sandy beaches and cliff tops dominate the coastline. Add to this natural beauty, high quality golf facilities, warm coastal climate, superb quality accommodation and courses designed by legendary golfers including Ian Woosnam and Gary Player, you really do have a hidden gem of a golfing destination.

For a different challenge there are also two golf resorts in South Western Bulgaria one close to Bulgaria's capital city, Sofia and the other near the pretty mountain town of Bansko situated close to the Rila, Pirin and Rhodope mountains.

Bulgaria is just a 3-4 hours flight from the UK and benefits from being a non-Euro destination ensuring that your money stretches that little bit further. With numerous excursions, nightlife, water sports and places of interest in the local area we hope that you will enjoy teeing off in Bulgaria this summer.
