Ahead of next week’s inaugural Azerbaijan Challenge Open, Azerbaijan’s first golfing venue, The National Azerbaijan Golf Club, has launched a state-of-the-art website in order to showcase its premier course, facilities and service to lovers of the game.  

The 7,011 yards, par 72 layout will play host to next week’s €300,000 Challenge Tour event, which marks the first time a professional golf tournament has been staged in the country.

The new website reflects the Troon-managed facility’s efforts, in conjunction with the Azerbaijan Golf Federation, to attract golfers from far and wide to bolster its budding golfing infrastructure.

The user-friendly platform (click here) will serve as a focal point for golfers looking to find out more about the emerging nation, following the much-anticipated opening of its first golf course last year, and features a wealth of information tailored for potential visitors.

Its extensive image gallery allows visitors to gain a full appreciation of The National Azerbaijan Golf Club, which boasts a highly-acclaimed, championship-standard layout designed by renowned golf course architect Jon Hunt.

As the primary source of information on The National Azerbaijan Golf Club, the site provides full details of the extensive facilities enjoyed by the up-and-coming venue, including its world-class Golf Academy, the unique Nineteen Restaurant and the exceptional, five-star Rixos Quba Azerbaijan Hotel, nearby.

“We hope our new website can help to open the eyes of golfers from all over the globe to the quality of the golf course and additional facilities on offer here at The National Azerbaijan Golf Club,” said Philip Henderson, General Manager of The National Azerbaijan Golf Club.

“Azerbaijan may be a growing golfing nation, but there is no question our facility provides one of the finest golfing experiences presented anywhere in the world.

“Our golf course, conceived by Jon Hunt and International Golf Design, will next week host The European Challenge Tour’s Azerbaijan Challenge Open, serving as further proof of the unique test offered and the elevated standards of our on-site amenities.

“Combined with this exciting event featuring some of the stars of the future, we’re confident our website will encourage a growing number of golfers – whether they are already thinking of travelling to Azerbaijan or seeking a bespoke golf holiday – to come and sample The National Azerbaijan Golf Club, acting as a vital portal for all golfers who choose to visit us.”
