Golf has been up and coming in Bulgaria over the last few years. The new golfing developments to date have been popular even through a recession, not for Bulgarians, but for overseas customers wanting golfing holidays and exclusive properties close to golfing sites. There are some big golfing names involved as well. Gary Player is one of them with this new project. Somehow, that makes a big difference with a golfing celebrity attached to a resort and makes it more creditable in a country where not much is known about it There is even a new golfing resort being built next to my isolated village in rural SE Bulgaria. Again not for locals, but for VIP Bulgarians and golfing imports. The report here reads more as an advert, but ikn essence still give the overview on what is happening with golf in Bulgaria.
Gary Player is making a significant impact to popularize golf in Bulgaria with the design of two Gary Player Signature Courses. The prolific designer of golf courses around the globe continues to break new ground in countries where the sport is emerging. For three years, Player has made numerous site visits to his two high-profile Bulgarian projects near Varna, Thracian Cliffs and BlackSeaRama.
On July 18, Player will be present for the official grand opening and charity golf tournament at the world-class BlackSeaRama Golf & Villas resort. The 7,200-yard, par-72 course occupies a dramatic coastal site on an elevated plateau that affords panoramic views of the Black Sea. In what is Bulgaria's first gated golf community, BlackSeaRama's links-style layout offers fescue covered land forms into a routing that takes full advantage of breathtaking views of the Black Sea.
Player commends the developers for "having optimized the land use here to create something truly special for golfers around the world."
