Time for Tee? - Five Signature Courses

Martin continued, ‘We’re embarking on an international marketing campaign focused on the golf industry in Bulgaria with exhibitions all over the world. The first will be in Sofia, the home of all five developers. Together with the Bulgarian Golf Association, we are promoting Bulgaria as the up and coming golf hot spot of Europe’.

One of Living Bulgaria's customers is snooker legend Willie Thorne, who has travelled all over the world, including Spain and Portugal, looking at golf courses in various stages of construction. Willie commented ‘this is a truly amazing development, I’ve never seen anything like this, it’s like Gleneagles size. I’m impressed with the amount of space, not just for the whole development but the space that each villa has - in Spain they are on tiny plots and they look like they’ve been built in a corridor’.

Martin went on to give us a short personal overview of the five signature courses :
Lighthouse Golf & Spa resort
An Ian Woosnam, 72 par lux golf complex on the Black Sea coast with strong links to the Bulgarian Golf Association. Also the first golf course that my company and my partner agents started to promote, and thus the one that got me hooked on golf property here in Bulgaria and helped me realise the potential. Pitched on a spectacular plateau with sea views and about five kms from the centre of Balchik. Apartments to be completed by September this year, course to open April next year. Around 350 apartments and 300 houses. Approx 1.2 million sq.m.
Prices starting from: Apartments 59,000 euros. Villas 136,000 euros


Pirin Golf & Country Club
Again by our friend Woosy and in association with European Golf Design, this luxury golf resort combines the best of golf and ski nestled in the popular Bansko region with its well groomed ski slopes. Located in Razlog, 12 kms from the slopes of Bansko. Again about 700 properties split over apartments and houses. Completion of the complex is forecast for April 2008. Approx 900,000 sq.m.
Prices starting from: Apartments 60,354 euros. Villas 250,431 euros



IBAR Country Golf Club & Spa
These guys bring a new player to Bulgaria, Jack Nicklaus who is internationally renowned for not only his game, but more so his design team. It is the first Nicklaus design golf course in south east Europe. Situated at the foothills of the highest mountain on the Balkan Peninsula. With a more traditional design than some courses it has a close proximity (18 kms) to the Borovets ski lifts.
There is even a church on the site! Big one this, about 1.6 million sq.m. About 500 units total.
Prices starting from: Apartments 21,000 euros. Villas 120,000 euros



Black Sea Rama Golf & Country Club
Designed by the famous Gary Player, this cliff edge course with great sea views again has a traditional, high quality feel and a pro-active marketing team. Again more focused on the houses, but still a good selection of apartments. Views of either the golf course or the sea. Next door to Lighthouse Golf Resort so again just 5 kms from Balchik. About 1 million sq.m. Approx 800 units total.
Prices starting from: Apartments 124,080 euros. Villas 186,718 euros


Thracian Cliffs Golf & Spa Resort
One of only three links courses in the world, boasts wonderful sea views and again the signature of the famous Gary Player, the ‘Black Knight’ of golf. The luxury village resort ranges through 145 tranquil, south facing hectares, where dramatic white cliffs and gentle bluffs descend to the beaches and the sparkling blue waters of the Black Sea.

Wow, this is a real stunner! Right on the waters edge, with phase one well underway and being focused more on apartments and hotel / spa and the course, many villas to follow in phases 2 and 3. Due to open August 2008. 4.5 kms long and about 1.4 million sq.m. Approx 600 units total.
Prices starting from: Apartments 84,890 euros. All have guaranteed sea views. Luxury villas to be released shortly.
