BEGUILING BULGARIA!

 

Wild wooded mountain ranges sprinkled with remote villages and enchanting monasteries, vibrant cosmopolitan cities and sensational swathes of golden sand that hug the turquoise Black Sea coast. The sublime slendour of Bulgaria knows no bounds!

A country of ancient history dating back over 7000 years, from the Thracians, a fearsome warrior people, whose most celebrated son, Spartacus, led the slave uprising against the Roman Empire, to inevitably the Greeks and Romans. Yet despite its rich ancestry, Bulgaria remained a place of mystery, relatively unknown to the outside world for over 40 years due to the Iron Curtain and the communist domination and suppression. 

In 1989 Bulgaria began to emerge from its darkest period following the fall of the Soviet Union and the breakup of the Eastern Block. Tourism was targeted as one of the country’s greatest assets and by the turn of the century the majestic golden sands of the Black Sea resorts were attracting visitors from all over Europe.

Bulgaria most definitely would not be the first country you think of for a golfing holiday and why should it be, as Europe’s 16th largest country, it can only boast 6 golf courses! St. Sofia was the first course, opened in 2004 and as its name suggests, located in the country’s capital in the west of Bulgaria. A further three courses are situated in this vicinity serviced by Sofia airport.

However, it is the three sensational courses in Cape Kaliakra on the Black Sea coast that have captured the imagination of European golfers. Close to Varna, Bulgaria’s maritime capital and one of its most pulsating cities, it is Thracian Cliffs, Black Sea Rama and the Lighthouse Resort that have forged the path of Bulgaria as an emerging golf destination.

Don’t let anyone kid you that golf in Bulgaria is a best kept secret, it’s not! Bulgaria is the buzz word on the tip of everyone’s tongue regarding golfing holidays. Beat the crowds before it is too late for a fantastic golf holiday in…
