Golf in Russia

Golf is the newest addition to the list of sports played in Russia and is generally considered a pastime for the affluent. This is not only because of golf’s exclusive appeal, but also as there are not many facilities in the country, and those there are have had a lot of money invested in them. Former World No.1 tennis player and Olympic champion, Evgeny Kafelnikov moved into golf after finishing his tennis career and is now one of the main proponents of this sport.

The country’s first golf club opened in 1987 and is located in the upper-class area in the west of Moscow. Russia now has around 14 working golf courses; one is located in St Petersburg, four in other regions and the rest in and around Moscow. However, not all of them have websites.

Most clubs have driving ranges as well as courses. Handicap requirements vary, as well as requirements to be a member. Non-members are usually allowed to practise and play on weekdays, with weekends being subject to availability. As of January 2013, golf lessons can be taught at Russian schools.
