Gorki Golf Club joins World of Leading Golf

February 10, 2016

Golf is not just a worldwide sport; the latest recruit to the World of Leading Golf (WLG) shows that the ethos and spirit of the sport is appreciated worldwide too. 

Located just 50km from St Petersburg, Gorki Golf Club - the first club in north-west Russia and the first WLG member from the country - has been designed with more than a subtle nod to the best traditions of Scottish links, with a 6,505m, par-72 championship course. 

Off course, the clubhouse and restaurant provide the standards for which WLG member clubs are renowned - and which Gorki has pioneered in this region of Russia. Located at the highest point of the golf course, the clubhouse and two-storey restaurant offer a relaxing ‘country club' ambience in which to enjoy European and Russian cuisine, a cool post-round drink or, simply, to watch the drama unfold on the course below, courtesy of the panoramic windows. 

Just an hour from St Petersburg's Pulkovo Airport, a residential community is under construction at Gorki, offering wooden or stone villas, to enable people to enjoy the beautiful, often brooding, landscape at their leisure. 

Claus Feldt, WLG's chief executive, said: "Golf is increasing in popularity in Russia and Gorki Golf Club intends to maintain and uphold all of the facets of the sport that we at WLG hold dear. Of course, it's always a pleasure to welcome the first member from any country, but we are especially delighted that, for Russia, it is Gorki, for it is a special ‘country-club style' venue with everything a modern golfer requires." 

WLG and its member clubs are passionately committed to preserve golf culture but not only by heeding to such things as rules, dress code and etiquette - they commit to the very highest of quality standards concerning the design and caretaking of golf courses and services, as well as the levels of ambiance and gastronomy.
