St. Petersburg – a new golf destination! 
Golf courses have been always identified for their natural beauty and tranquility. There players feel themselves as worlds away from the reality - with the silence disturbed only by a club’s swish or a native bird singing. The sport is enjoyed by participants of all ages and abilities in many different countries around the world and for many years golf has been reputed to be the largest sport travel market. Golf in Russia is still at its early stages but it has already become one of the hottest spots for golf industry development. The first golf course was founded in 1989 in Moscow, and the first professional championship-level field was built only in 1993 in the Moscow region, but for a long time golf courses in Moscow remained closed. Now basically all the golf courses are in the Moscow region. However, one of the regions actively developing at the moment is the North-Western one. St. Petersburg in general is a novice in the field of golf, like all of Russia, and until recently had only one golf course in St. Petersburg which was a 3-hole course and driving range of the Dune Golf Club located in the resort area. No other project of 18-hole golf courses was that successful before the Gorki Golf club project had been implemented. In Russia there is still a stereotype that golf is a game for rich men in adulthood, so the Gorki Golf Club is working to dispel these convoluted beliefs.  
The implementation of GORKI Golf Club project was carried out in 2010. The architect of the project was chosen by the famous Finnish architect Lassi Tilander, whose work was highly appreciated by the experts of the European Golf Association and included in the rating of the top 100 golf courses in Europe. In 2011 the construction of the field began, in May 2013 the golf academy was opened and the first three holes of the championship course, in 2014 - 9 holes of the championship field, the opening of the restaurant and the Club house. In September 2015, a grand opening of 18 holes championship course.
Now the club is a golf resort of international level with an 18-hole championship course and a developed infrastructure. Several Russian and international competitions have already been held on its territory. GORKI has become a Club of unifying generation, a family club, a favorite hobby for many, a venue for corporate events and an excellent resting place for the business audience of St. Petersburg. The course of the golf club certainly deserves attention of the foreign golfers. It is built in accordance with the standards of best course management - R & A and is the Scottish Inland Links Course. By all standards, such a field can host international competitions of any level.
