Bulgaria is well-known for a lot of things, but golf holidays in Bulgaria is not traditionally one of them. However, golf’s star is currently rising in the country, as more and more people choose to travel there with a golf holiday in mind. So why are Bulgaria golf holidays starting to become more popular?
Whatever your handicap, Bulgaria has plenty to offer if you are looking for a great value golf holiday. Most courses offer multiple tees so that you can still enjoy the challenges of that particular course, without feeling as though you are overstretching your golfing abilities. The courses also have all of the same resources as you would expect from your favourite courses back home, such as a club houses, practice greens and pro shops for all of your golfing needs. Most front-of-house staff will also have an excellent command of English, so you can gain assistance when needed.
One of the other major draws about golfing in Bulgaria is the favourable climate. The weather conditions in the region mean that most courses are playable for at least 10 months per year, yet they are not unbearably hot during the summer period. With the majority of European destinations only a few hours away by plane, Bulgaria is the perfect place to travel to if you want the chance to play away from home.
Many of the best courses are also situated close to the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, so when you are not out on the course playing golf, you can spend time enjoying miles and miles of unspoilt beaches. If the coast does not interest you, the area is also steeping in history and plays host to a rich cultural heritage. If you choose to travel to the area with your family or other non-golfers, they will not run out of things to keep them entertained whilst you are playing golf.
Bulgaria is also a great place for a luxury golf holiday if you are on a tight budget. Low costs in Bulgaria mean that you will not end up spending much on top-quality accommodation, delicious food and your green fees. For even better deals, it is possible to arrange cost-saving packages which include all-inclusive food and accommodation, as well as green fees for favourable tee times on the courses of your choosing.
