Heard from a golf buddy the other day, the story of a group of his friends who just got back from a fabulous golf trip to Bulgaria. “Bulgaria?” I asked? My pal sent me the YouTube video below of Thracian Cliffs Golf and Beach Resort. I was instantly intrigued.
Gary Player designed the golf course at Thracian Cliffs. The course sits on the west coast of the Black Sea. Every hole has a view of the Black Sea and most of the holes are right on the cliffs overlooking the Black Sea.
The gears in my head are already grinding, thinking of some way I can get out there. Bulgaria is nowhere near St. Andrews, so probably not when I make the next trip to the home of golf. But Bulgaria is close to Greece. Yes… Now it is coming together. Trip to Bulgaria, then to my ancestral land of Greece, then the Greek islands. Yeeeessss.
