Volker Puschel - 1st 9: 2008/2nd 9: 2011
This is a Troon-managed golf course
Located in an ethnographic reserve - Starocherkasskaya village, just 20 minutes drive from the centre of Rostov-on-Don, the historic town of Stanitsa Starocherkasskaya, Russia
Restaurant, weddings, proshop, corporate events
Golf Academy, driving range, putting green, pitching-green and three teaching holes
In the planning is a five-star hotel featuring panoramic lake views, with first-class amenities including a yacht club, tennis courts, horse ranch, polo field, sandy beach, and a golf village of luxurious villas and family cottages.
This is an excellent test of golf, cleverly laid out with many good holes the ninth being extremely difficult par 5. Currently only nine holes but you play off different tees for back nine. Water everywhere the River Don winds its way through course. Very interesting too see the top half of a large vessel passing by as if it were on the fairway. Food excellent and great hospitality for an Englishman.
Value For Money: Good
