St. Sofia Golf Club & SPA

St. Sofia Golf Club and SPA

Not so many years ago this place was a barren land, without a single tree, fully meeting the name of the nearby village of Ravno Pole (Flat Fields). Thanks to the vision and commitment of the investors and management team, today St. Sofia has become a first-class golf, SPA, hotel and lifestyle retreat where every guest is welcomed.

Whether you are an avid golfer, or you are trying to plan your free time, or you are looking for a place to host your corporate event, St. Sofia Golf Club & SPA is the perfect choice!



St. Sofia Golf Club & SPA is located just 25 minutes from Sofia city center. It hosts an 18 hole golf course designed by Paul McGinley, a golf academy, a football field, two petanque and croquet fields, professional golf shop, stylish restaurant, Vitamin bar, Lobby bar, Business Center, Boutique Hotel and SPA center with an indoor/outdoor mineral pool.

The golf course was opened in 2004 and laid the foundation for building the golf community in Bulgaria. In 2009 a major decision was taken to re-design the course resulting in a closure of 18 months. In early May 2012 the eagerly awaited result was unveiled, designed by the famous Irish golfer Paul McGinley. The Capital City Sofia now has a golf course that sits proudly alongside other European Cities.

For the novice looking to make their first steps to play the game and those who have not yet accumulated enough skills to enjoy the challenges of the course, a golf academy is available with a driving range, training simulators, a training course with two holes, and video systems for computer analysis. The Academy is suitable for all – from absolute beginners to experienced golfers. The head teacher is a Professional Golfer supported by an experienced team.

The professional golf shop offers clothing and equipment from top brands such as Titleist, Callaway, Footjoy, Glenmuir, Ralph Lauren and J. Lindeberg.

Our cozy Cafeteria, located on the driving range premises, is where after practicing you can have a cup of coffee, refreshment or a snack. Its vintage ambiance will make you feel part of the history and tradition of the game.


The Clubhouse

The Clubhouse is built in colonial style and its broad terraces reveal a magnificent view over the golf course and Vitosha Mountain. The beautiful panoramic view over the stunning sunsets is combined with exquisite drinks, international and local cuisine and an excellent service.

The Vitamin bar ‘19th Hole’ is a natural extension of the intriguing golf game – here players discuss their achievements, celebrate their victories, and build friendships. Tailor made BBQ for golfers and connoisseurs of the fresh meat, fish and vegetables, is prepared in the show kitchen of the Vitamin bar.

The Locker rooms are cozy and spacious, with refined interior and elegant furniture. At your disposal is also the shoe cleaning service.

Restaurant & Lobby

No matter if it is a quick snack, a juicy burger, freshly barbequed high quality meat and sausages or original Italian homemade dish, St. Sofia restaurant & Lobby bar is much more than an F&B location, it’s about entertainment gastronomy, a stylish venue to meet friends or business partners.


Weddings & events

There is no place more attractive for wedding receptions and closer to Sofia than the Golf Club, whether it is the restaurant and its terrace, the garden to the 18th green or the pool area that are of interest.

The complex also offers various opportunities for parties and team building experiences with the inclusion of golf, football, mineral pool, SPA treatments, petanque and croquet.
