All construction works were carried out by domestic individual enterprise Myradym, which has already built several important facilities including Avaza sport complex on the Caspian coast. Now, our specialist perfectly managed such complex facility as golf field, which construction requires sound knowledge of landscape construction and design.
Project and consulting works were carried out by Nicklaus Design from USA, which Head Jack Nicklaus was met by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov for several times to discuss the opportunities of the golf development in our country.
Today, another idea of the Head of the State has been implemented – Ashgabat has a golf club with luxury, beautiful fields and the sport itself being an exotic one for Turkmenistan citizens recently would attract number of amateurs, which probably would become the professionals in the future. However, the main purpose of the project is a social one, in other words, this is for making of all conditions for prosperous life and healthy recreation of people. Besides, the presence of the golf course meeting the highest criteria of similar facilities will allow holding international championships and world tournaments in Turkmen capital as well as attracting more tourists.
