Everyone knows that Russia is a massive country but as a golfing nation it’s tiny. A decade ago, golf in Russia was a novelty and the preserve of wealthy diplomats rather than a serious professional sport. But things are changing and the pleasures of the Royal & Ancient game are slowly but surely being discovered.
Naturally, Russians are stereotyped as Cossack dancing, vodka drinking, fur hat wearing, Lada driving folk who love all night parties. There must be some exceptions? This huge country is so diverse that we couldn’t possibly even begin to describe it here, so we’ll get straight on to the golf.
Naturally Moscow Country Club put Russia firmly on the golfing map, but there are now thirty golf courses in the country and more are either in the planning or construction stages. If you've played many of Russia's golf courses and would like to help shape our future Russian golf course rankings, we’d love to hear from you, so please get in touch. Dosvidania for now.
Our Russian golf course rankings were last updated in December 2015.
