The Game of GOLF took another step forward in its spread to new countries with the announcement of the creation of a Championship standard course in Azerbaijan.

Located on the Caspian Sea, bordering Georgia, Turkey and Iran, Azerbaijan owes its booming economy to Oil, Natural Gas, Agriculture and a growing focus on Tourism.

The location for the new course designed by International Golf Design, based in UK and to be constructed by Total Golf Construction of Florida, USA, is nearby the small town of Quba, situated between the Caucasus Mountains and the Caspian Sea.  The site, with its challenging changes of elevation, offers breathtaking views over the nearby hills, with mountains as a backdrop.   The nature of the location offers opportunity for skiing during some winter months.

The project which is being developed by the newly formed Azerbaijan Golf Federation is already witnessing a 200 bedroom, 5star hotel rising on the site.

The course, which is planned, to meet the ambitions of the developer, to be the venue for Championship Tournaments under the management of Troon Golf, is scheduled to be ready for play at the end of 2012.
