The idea of building a championship golf course in Russia, dates back to the early 1970s when leaders of the Russian Government invited Dr. Armand Hammer to Russia, an American executive with a voracious entrepreneurial spirit. The purpose of this meeting was to find out what Russia needed to entice Western business. Dr. Hammer’s legendary answer - limousines and a golf course.
In 1988 the idea became a reality when construction began on what, six years later, would become Russia’s first 18-hole golf course. Golfers find a “Fairway to Heaven” on the immaculate greens nestled within the beautiful birch forest located in charming Nakhabino, only 15 km from Outer Ring Road (MKAD).
The Club boasts a magnificent 18-hole, 7015 yard championship golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr to harmonize the natural beauty of the countryside with the highest international standards in golf. In recognition of the uniqueness and quality of the par-72 course, the European PGA has endorsed the Club, ranking it with the World’s most prestigious clubs. Since its opening in 1993, the Moscow Country Club has become the permanent venue for a number of major golf competitions, including the Russian Open, the country’s first professional golf tournament. The golf course is open from May to October.
