The 18-hole Gary Player Signature Golf Course forms the core of Thracian Cliffs Golf & Beach Resort.
The golf course covers 85 hectares of truly beautiful Cliffside. The golf course has been sculptured to perfectly into this area and create one of the most wonderful golfing experiences. Sea views are in abundance and from every hole there is stunning view of the Cliffside and the Black Sea coast.
The Gary Player design will really challenge the golfer in dificulty and length but with its modern design and several sets of tees this great experience will be made available for all levels of golfers. It is fair to say that every hole is a signature hole but the 6th will surely be the one everyone will remember. This hole sits on top of the cliff with the green set some 40 meters below cut into the hillside and surrounded by the lapping waves of the Black Sea. The game from the back tee definitely is not for the faint hearted as the distance measures over 210 m.
The golf course has been likened to several famous courses and Mr. Player was proud to say: “Thracian Cliffs Golf & Beach Resort will become one of the top 3 golf courses on the planet.”
Endless sea view from the height of 200 meters towards the magnificent and extremely diverse bay from Cape Kaliakra to Cape Galata of the Black Sea - this is BlackSeaRama, the first championship signature golf course in Bulgaria - 18 holes, par 72, length of 6648 meters - and the first completed project of Gary Player in Eastern Europe.
From a flat terrain, a magnificent classical cliff-top links golf course is created, with intimacy at very each of the fairways and with greens, often exceeding the regular sizes. The whole design is fulfilled with respect towards the player, as it gives him/her a maximum of the chance for a good round at a high-class golf course, where the wind - as it is usual when close to the sea - is often a significant factor.
This award-winning course - Best new golf course in the world for 2009 (in the international category of the Golf Inc. magazine contest) is destined to be explored and to reveal the wonders of the game.
The personal participation of Gary Player in both the design and marketing process, together with the reputation and visibility of the Gary Player brand bring significant value to all facets of our projects.
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. All of whom are most welcome to test their skills.
