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.
Lighthouse Golf Course is designed
by the famous ex-Ryder Cup
Captain, Ian Woosnam. The
championship golf course is of
a 'links' design. Contributing
to the stunning scenery are the
outstanding natural landscapes
around which Ian Woosnam has
created a brilliant selection of holes.
The golf course offers an exciting
challenge to both professional
players and amateurs alike. More
