Much of the work of Paul McGinley has been to take old golf courses which have lost their design qualities over time…
updating them, in many cases by removing unnecessary add on features. The objective being to build to highest standards therefore maximising capital expenditures and ensuring future operating costs are sustainable.

The course was officially opened by the Bulgarian Prime Minister, Mr. Boyko Metodiev Borisov, Mr. Krassimar Guergov (Owner) and Paul McGinley on 5th May 2012.
Playing conditions can suffer from generational changes and as the game of golf evolves.
Careful investment will mitigate against constant reinvestment giving the capacity of the golf course to endure thereby maximising diversity though time. When renovating Paul McGinley immerses himself in how the course played and how it will set up for the future. Whether it is overgrown trees, over contoured greens or simply hazards in the wrong places, all design features will be assessed for retention, upgrade, or removal. All works will be underpinned with strict Health & Safety guidelines and the need for streamlined maintenance costs. Most importantly, when renovated the course has to be playable to all standards, enhancing the reputation of the course.
