A New Course In Bulgaria For Harradine
05 Nov 07

Work has finally started on the Pravets Golf Resort and Country Club after a lengthy and complicated procedure to obtain the building permits. The project is near Sofia and was definitely worth the wait.


This exciting and challenging complex includes an 18 hole tournament course, a luxury hotel, sports centre, indoor golf, casino, night club and an outdoor Olympic size swimming pool. The investor is Terra Tour Service – a well known hotel and real estate operator.


“The main challenge was to transform the flatish clay-based farmland into an interesting layout. Fortunately, the site descends gently towards a beautiful artificial lake which can be seen from most holes. We have placed the clubhouse at the highest elevation thus providing a magnificent view of the lake, the beautiful Stara Planina Mountain, the enormous 9th and 18th double green and the majority of the course”, stated Peter Harradine..


The course undulates gently in complete harmony with the surrounding landscape and is a classic Par 72 with 2 starting and finishing holes at the clubhouse and a total length of 6536 metres from the back tees.


The course certainly offers a challenging but fair test of golf and the natural features of the site coupled with the additional changes in elevation create a series of memorable golf holes. The proposed mounding and landscaping, the planting of 4665 trees of different varieties placed at strategic locations and between the fairways will add character, safety and individuality to each hole.


The project boasts a very large and generous driving range and is complemented by putting and pitching greens thus offering excellent practice facilities which are so important to any existing course, especially in a new market!
