We share the owner’s ambition of creating a distinguished experience and welcoming members and guests to enjoy the venue and the range of amenities on-site.”
The parkland-style golf course boasts spectacular views of the local mountains and lake framed by the impressive Riu Pravets Resort Hotel (www.riupravets.bg). The state-of-the-art Academy is manned by dedicated multilingual PGA Professionals, providing members and visitors pristine facilities to hone their games – whether during the day or under the specialised lighting for night golf.
“By appointing Troon, we will benefit from their insights in how to grow the appeal of the game locally, as well as tapping into the lucrative international golf traveler market,” commented Lachezar Todorov, Chief Executive Officer Terra Tour Service (www.tts.bg), the owners of Pravets Golf Club.
