Bansko Golf Course
Set at the very foot of the impressive Pirin mountains, the Bansko golf course is probably going
to be one of the best in country for quality and facilities. In fact, it is being described as
world class as it combines luxury spa facilities, sports facilities and residential areas.
The course is being built by IMG and designed by golfer Ian Woosnam.
IMG is a multinational leading sports and lifestyle managing and marketing firm. They are also
the largest independent distributor of sport programs. As well as managing 11 major sports
events throughout the world everyday and having clients such as Michael Schumacher, Manchester
United, Pete Sampras, Kate Moss, Major League Baseball and many more super stars, it has now
branched out into golf course developing.

Ian Woosnam, who is in charge of developing the course, is himself a golfer of the highest levels so
who better to entrust the design of this course! Since hitting the golfing scene 1982, Ian Woosnam
has taken the golfing world by storm by winning 44 prestigious tournaments throughout the world and
setting a British record in the process by doing this. He has earned respect for his admirable achievements
and for his skills at designing award winning, top quality courses.
Ian says: ‘I am extremely excited about this opportunity. Golf is in its early stages of development
in Bulgaria and I am keen to be involved in helping develop the sport in the country. We aim to create
world class facilities which will promote the game of golf and tourism in general. The backdrop to the
Bansko site is spectacular and with mature pine tress and streams I envisage a rugged mountain look
to the course.

As Ian Woosnam said, the surrounding scenery and views from this golf course will be simply stunning.
Set right at the very foot of the tree lined Pirin mountains, it has panoramic views over the Rila and
Rhodopi mountain ranges. What a place to play golf on! No doubt it will beat the local course back home
Aside from golfing, there are a large number of top quality facilities on offer to appeal to everyone.
Included in the development is:
Dolna Banya Golf Course Starts Officially!
-Sports complex which will include: a football pitch, 2 tennis courts, volleyball and basketball courts.
-Exclusive horse riding centre
-Hotel complex with: Spa centre, swimming pool filled with
high quality real mineral water, sauna, hydro-massage baths
and a wide range of alternative therapies designed to relax.

These facilities are not taking into account what the ski resort of Bansko already offers. Millions
have been spent on improving the ski facilities and millions more are planned to be spent on all facilities.

The spa town of Banya is around a 5 minute drive too.
