The National Golf Club Azerbaijan
Located in the stunning countryside of Guba in north-eastern Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan National Golf Club is nestled amid natural forests near the stunning Caucasus Mountains. It was designed by Jon Hunt from International Golf Design and was the first 72-par 18-hole golf course to appear in Azerbaijan. Moreover, during the summer of 2014, less than two months after its official opening, the club hosted the Azerbaijan Challenge Open, Azerbaijan’s inaugural professional event. Positioned within 75 hectares of idyllic Azerbaijani nature, the course is characterised by its beautifully undulating fairways lined by apple trees and dotted with deep bunkers and lakes that create plenty of challenges for golfers of all levels. However it looks harder than it plays, so everyone can enjoy it. The Clubhouse has luxurious locker rooms, a professional shop and a restaurant serving excellent food and drink, not to mention the magnificent views of the course. There is a practice zone with putting and chipping areas and a driving range to perfect your skills in. And you can stay over at the fabulous on-site Quba Palace Hotel.
Annual membership is offered that includes a variety of benefits, such as reduced fees for your guests and discounts at the shop, Guba Palace Hotel and restaurants. Find out more on the club’s website:
There is a golf shop in the Clubhouse selling a wide range of golf clothes and equipment by famous golf brands such as TaylorMade, Greg Norman, Adidas, Footjoy, Polo, Titleist and others. For more information, see the club’s website.

Soft-soled or flat-soled sports shoes should be worn by all golfers. T-shirts, jeans and beachwear are strictly prohibited on the course.
