Lighthouse Golf Resort To Open May 2009

Lighthouse Golf Resort, the 70 million euro complex being built near Balchik on Bulgaria's northeastern Black Sea coast, will officially open in May 2009. Some 50 million euro of the funds earmarked for the project have already been invested, executive director Georgi Chouklev said at the ceremony inaugurating the golf course.Ian Woosnam, the Welsh golf pro who designed the course, is expected to attend the official opening of the complex.The complex, whose full name is Lighthouse Golf Resort & Spa, will have 1000 housing units, of which some 600 are still under construction and 350 have already been sold to buyers of various nationalities.The five-star 180-room hotel part will feature retail space, bars and restaurants, a spa and wellness centre, a tennis court and swimming pools. The holiday homes will be grouped in five clusters, two of which - Marina and Lighthouse - will rise above the cliffs on the shore, while Green, Lake and Forest are all surrounded by the golf course.Lighthouse Golf Resort is close to two other golf courses - Black Sea Rama and Thracian Rocks, giving golfers the chance to switch courses.
