Being named after Thrax, the son of the Greek war god Ares, the history of the ancient Thracian tribes reaches back into the times of Alexander the Great and is mostly Hellenistic in character. Today, this historical stretch of land is shared by Turkey and Bulgaria and serves as a lavish backdrop for one of the most impressive modern golf resorts of Europe: The Thracian Cliffs Resort.
The 18-hole Gary Player Signature Golf Course forms the core of the resort. It covers 85 hectares of truly beautiful cliffside and has been sculptured to fit perfectly into the natural surroundings to create 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 difficulty and length but with its modern design and several sets of tees this great experience is 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.
Located on the Marina Village circle, the club house offers golfers a comfortable place to meet, have a casual meal or drink as they begin their adventure on the course or return to reminisce of the highlights of the day. The full service Pro Shop offers a wide range of golf clothing, equipment and golf balls – something every golfer should have plenty of in their bag for this spectacular course.
Guests wishing to stay have a varied choice of luxurious accommodations in two quiet and peaceful villages – Marina Village and Hillside, which are separated by a beautiful lake providing more stunning views of the landscape and sea.
