Bulgaria Golf Holidays

The borders of Bulgaria are defined by the Danube, the Black Sea and Greece and Turkey to the south.   Its climate varies a lot with Alpine influence in the north and the warmth of the Mediterranean in the south and around the Black Sea to the east.  There are two distinct golfing regions in Bulgaria:

Cape Kaliakra  – formed by the three signature golf courses of Lighthouse (Ian Woosnam), BlackSeaRama (Gary Player), and the flagship Thracian Cliffs  (Gary Player).  Cape Kaliakra has long been known as a holiday destination resort and mixes sleek yachts with seaside charm.  

Sofia Region – comprising St.Sofia Golf Club (Paul McGinnley), Pravets Golf Resort (Peter Harradine), and Pirin Golf and Country Club (Ian Woosnam)

Golf Breaks Bulgaria

Both regions offer quality resorts at value to rival anywhere else. You can liken golf in Bulgaria to a “boutique” version of Turkey – the hotels are smaller and there are fewer courses but there’s more après-golf outside the hotel. At the golf resorts and in the nearby towns, you can find most types of restaurants with seafood from the Black Sea being top of the menu.

We offer both half-board and all-inclusive and eating out is refreshingly cheap. Bulgaria is known as one of the big European producers of beers and not by chance do the top European brands have their main breweries here. The local brands of Zagorka, Shoumensko, Ariana (and many others), including top quality ones, cost about €1 a pint. 

Our prices include transfers from the airports and golf courses. 

Bulgaria is a great-value “away from the crowds” option for excellent modern golf, comfortable resorts and a warm welcome.
