AND THE WINNER IS...
AND THE WINNER IS…
On Saturday, November 3rd at the 5th World Golf Award GORKI Golf & Resort was voted in two nominations.
Russia’s Best Golf Hotel 2018 is a very important nomination for us, as our hotel opened it's doors only in the beginning of the year and still is very young. However our guests enjoyed staying with us and valued cosiness and comfort of the hotel. So, we are proud to be Russia's Best Golf Hotel (https://worldgolfawards.com/award/russia-best-golf-hotel/2018)
The most significant nomination for GORKI Golf & Resort is Russia’s Best Golf Course 2018. This year there was 9 nominees from all over Russia. Proudly we anounce GORKI Golf & Resort as a winner!(https://worldgolfawards.com/award/russia-best-golf-course/2018)
We are happy to be among the best golf facilities!
