Welcome to the Pirin Golf & Country Club right on our doorstep

If you’ve already visited us and spent a weekend or more of sheer golf bliss, we know that you’re ever so fond of this magical space and can’t wait to come back and enjoy a game of golf at the exquisite Pirin Golf & Country Club.
Set against the towering back drop of the stunning Pirin Mountains, the Ian Woosnam Golf Course encapsulates what it means to play golf in the mountains. It’s really as gorgeously stupendous as it sounds – an outstanding 18-hole, par 72 championship course designed by the winning 2006 Ryder Cup Captain.
Here’s what golfing enthusiasts love.
The golf course takes players on an adventure through the rough and rugged terrain, which is designed to excite and challenge golfers of all levels, while still being enjoyable for absolute beginners. That’s right, if you have no golfing experience and would like to give this sport a shot, the golf course just a few minutes away from your favourite home away from home, the Balkan Jewel is the perfect place to begin.
Every golf game is its own story and will present special celebration moments which you will treasure and will make you want to continue to improve your game, network with other golfers and dedicate even more of your travel time to setting your own personal best. No matter how far you hit the ball or whether you prefer to take the aerial route or chip and run it, there is a route from the tee to the green for every golfer to discover.
The gorgeous weather here in Bansko is really the cherry on the cake. The almost constant Summer wind, gently blows through the Razlog valley and has a large impact on the strategy of your game. In fact, anyone failing to take the wind into consideration will almost certainly find themselves in more than one of the numerous well placed strategic pot styled bunkers, which are dotted around the golf course.
