The Russian National Golf Team has announced the start of training for the 2016 Olympic Games that will be held in Rio-de- Janeiro. Currently the most sophisticated golf club of the country, Agalarov Golf & Country Club, was selected as the training center of the Russian National Team for the 2016 Olympics.

“We are ambitious to present for the Olympics in Rio-de-Janeiro a strong team capable of success. And by 2020 Russian golfers must become world leaders”, - said Akhmed Bilyalov, President of the Russian Golf Association, Vice-President of the Russian Olympic Committee. He noted that achievement of this ambitious goal must be largely facilitated by the plans to develop golf infrastructure which would help make golf a mass and affordable sport in Russia, much as it is in the West.

“The developer has managed to create a world-scale golf training complex for amateurs, athletes and future golf stars, just 30 minutes’ drive away from Moscow. The 18-hole championship course and the Troon Golf Academy offer such options as swing video analysis, 3D motion analysis, ball radars, a separate putting studio, five training bentgrass greens, a separate TPI physical screening studio. Our TPI- and PGA-qualified instructors will help anyone interested to develop their golf skills at Agalarov Golf & Country Club”, - says Director of Golf at Agalarov Golf & Country Club Peter Holland.

“For 99% of our National Team members as well as for their coaches it’s a new, very difficult and exciting 4-year period of preparation for the Olympics, since this sport has returned to the Olympic Program after more than a 100-year absence”, - Director of the Association Elena Akhmedianova told the press-conference.

Agalarov Golf & Country Club is located on the territory of the Agalarov Estate, organized against the backdrop of a protected landscape totaling over 300 ha and including a magnificent 18-hole golf course (6492 sqm; par 71). Agalarov Golf & Country Club is managed by specially invited experts from the Troon Golf Academy.
