Peterhof Golf Club was opened on Sunday 4th of June and became the first full length golf course in the city of St. Petersburg.

The initial design of the golf course was created by Greg Norman and his Golf Architectural Studio, however, the final version was developed by Steve Forest. The course mixes up traditional Links style with waving wild roughs and a rail road running along the «back 9» holes, and the more usual for Russia Parkland view. All the 18 holes (par 71) are allocated inside a 55 hectare territory, with a total length of 5911 meters, which fits perfectly the idea of a city -golf club, saving time to the player while keeping him engaged with an interesting design.
The club is connected to the city by the main road «KAD» (an electric train) and a new «Toll» road «ZSD», however, local investors and government, are actively discussing the construction of a high speed «Tram» line to reach Peterhof and the golf club itself, which is going to make the way to the course even easier for the local players. The Pulkovo International airport is only 35 minutes drive away from the Golf Club.
