Opened by the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, in September 2013, the parkland-styled course at the National Azerbaijan Golf Club is set in rolling open country and was designed by Jon Hunt of the International Design Group.
Water comes into play on several holes, most notably at the par three 4th, which plays to a pond-protected green, and on the back nine at holes 14 and 15, where another pond separates the two fairways.
Long punishing two-shot holes characterize the main challenge here, where the only par four measuring under 370 yards from the back tees arrives late in the round at the slightly right doglegged 17th hole.
This golfing facility was built as the HQ for the newly created Azerbaijan Golf Federation and the course, which measures 7,011 yards, staged the Azerbaijan Golf Challenge Open (a new event on the European Challenge Tour) in July 2014, which Germany’s Moritz Lampert won.
A Great Golf course , narrow fairways, a lot of deep rough, up and down, beautiful views, some holes gives you the feeling to play in Scotland but with better weather, quality of the fairways and greens are very good, perfect practice, and really you have the feeling of your own golf course: no other people than us 4 all the day! Just a very few things gives you the feeling, it's nearly at the end of the world and a very new sport in this beautiful country: on the price list there was a special rate for guests of the Rixos hotel, and the staff mentioned : sorry, it was just cancelled, after a discussion we got the rate, also the Troon family package from 3 pm was changed by phone from the manager to 4 pm and this all with no other guests than us 4.
Same experience we made at the Rixos Hotel in the Chalet Restaurant, the Rip eye steak was listed with 39 AZN, but at time of order the price was rises by the staff to 60AZN. Be prepared: a few things are always out: no draught beer, no diet cola,... That can happen
Never the less it is a great experience to drive 2.5 hours to the green hills of the Caucasus and to stay here for 3 days
