Golf definitely isn't the most popular sport in Russia, and in fact it's not very popular at all in Russia, most Russians don't even know the sport. However, with Golf growing all over the world, the sport is gaining more and more popularity in Russia.
In fact, just recently a new golf course opened in the Tver Region, only 100 km from Moscow. The new course is the first and only Russian Championship golf course licensed by the PGA.
The new course is located in a new prestigious gated community. The Golf Club President, Alexander Yarunin, said: "It is a historic moment as we open the first and only championship golf course, capable of hosting the most prestigious golf events including those of the European Tour."
The new course will help to further the development of Golf in Russia, especially among the younger generation, producing new Olympic champions and proffessional golfers, says Yarunin. In addition the Zavidovo PGA National Golf Club will host a youth academy and junior golf school to help achieve these goals.
