The setting for the 18 hole golf course at the Thracian Cliffs Resort is truly stunning and rivals that of any other course in the world. A multitude of tee positions allow the Gary Player designed course to be sampled be golfers of all standards and everyone who tackles this picturesque course will be sure to be inspired by the dramatic coastal surroundings. The golfing experience can be further improved by hiring one of the professional caddies who will ensure their player for the day gets the most out of the course no matter the condition.
In May 2013 the course hosted the crop of professional golf as the venue of the Volvo World Match Play Championship. The tournament was eventually won by Northern Ireland star Graeme McDowell who beat Thongchai Jaidee 2 and 1 in the final. McDowell triumphed against a stellar field including Henrik Stenson and Ian Poulter, while former US Open champion Geoff Ogilvy commented "It’s a stunning bit of land. I don’t know if I’ve been in a place as impressive – a bit like Torrey Pines." With Thracian Cliffs receiving critical acclaim for its design and layout it is quickly becoming a must play destination for golfers.
