The three courses Lighthouse Golf Resort, Black Sea Rama and Thracian Cliffs are located in a 6 km radius from each other and all three off them offer amazing views of the Black Sea.

Gary did a week here September 2019 and everyone came away raving about the quality of the Resort and the 3 courses.

You fly into Varna (Whiz Air flights from Luton UK) and the journey to Lighthouse from Varna airport is 1 hour.

The luxurious, five- star Lighthouse Golf & Spa Hotel is the newest addition to the resort and it is scenically pitched on a spectacular plateau on top of the towering white cliffs with breathtaking views over the glittering blue Black Sea.

The venue provides elegant and stylish accommodation, various sport and recreational facilities, state-of-the art Spa & Wellness Centre, signature championship golf course (part of the European Tour Properties), various restaurants and bars, pampering services and entertainment. All of these features will contribute to your true 5-star stay in Bulgaria.

All 3 courses are special and with dramatic scenery, but we know you will really want to play the Gary Player designed Thracian Cliffs – many will remember it hosting the World Matchplay and the drama of all of the cliff top shots!  Gary Player also designed Black Sea Rama.

The driving range and practice facilities are amongst some of the best you will find. The Lighthouse golf course, designed by Ian Woosnam, it was of his first designs. In 2018 Lighthouse hosted a European Tour Seniors event.

Your stay will be completely relaxed as the package is All Inclusive and the price includes all transfers. So you will only spend on buggies and tips - buggies are compulsory at Thracian Cliffs. 

Improve your game and spend time with your excellent and highly experienced host Gary Pike.

This is not an intensive coaching holiday, but Gary will be on hand to give remedial advice on the range each day and will organise a short game and a putting school.  Gary is a experienced coach and charming host and you can see below just some of his many achievements on a highly impressive CV.
