Bulgaria Golf Holidays
There are two dramatic & contrasting golf regions in Bulgaria, one along Bulgaria's black sea coast, and another at Bulgaria's cosmopolitan capital, Sofia. More than six world-class golf courses are found in both regions.
Travellers are attracted to a country that has it all and is now surely and steadily finding its feet as a golf travel destination due to its top-quality resorts and general curiosity.
Black Sea coast, Varna & surrounding areas are home to various golf courses designed by Ian Woosnam, and Gary Player's BlackSeaRama and Thracian Cliffs.
All three courses are perfect for stay and play golf breaks with the choice of villas, hotels, or apartments encouraging longer luxurious golf breaks in Bulgaria. 
In Sofia & surrounding areas, Pirin Golf & Country Club, Pravets, and St.Sofia also have big-name designers and excellent facilities.
There's more than just golf in Bulgaria though, there are plenty of short trips you can make from Sofia after absorbing its heady energy, its landmark churches, and museums.
The UNESCO heritage site of Rila monastery is one, and Plovdiv and Koprivshtitsa, for history preserved in their beautiful architecture.
If the stunning setting of the Black Sea Coast itself is not enough, there’s exciting Varna and ancient history in Nesebar.
