Miura Golf’s First Dealership in Russia

Japanese golf-club manufacturer Miura Golf—which has been making the world’s highest-quality forged irons for 44 years—now has its first Miura dealership in Russia.

StudioGolf—founded in 2010 by owner Viacheslav Bocharov—is a modern indoor golf center in the heart of Moscow in a major sports complex/attraction called Luzhniki. StudioGolf works with Miura Golf through Golf Ballistix, Miura’s European distributor managed by Robert Cooke and Colin McElderry.

“We’re glad to have a Miura dealer in Russia,” says Adam Barr, President of Miura Golf Inc. and Miura Golf U.S.A. Inc. “It just confirms what we’ve seen about interest in golf growing around the world. It makes sense that many of those who are interested would seek the finest equipment they can get, and would want to have it custom-fitted by a dedicated dealer such as Viacheslav and his staff.”

StudioGolf is thrilled to be a part of the worldwide Miura Golf family, which offers the market’s finest forged clubs, says Bocharov, a fully certified clubfitter. Besides being Russia’s first Miura dealer, StudioGolf also represents Foresight Sports’ GC2 launch monitor/simulator solutions in Russia and sells them in various regions of the country.

StudioGolf’s strategy is to offer all Russian golfers only the highest-quality products and services with a friendly approach. At the same time, StudioGolf’s mission is to make golf more affordable. To that end, it introduced free children’s golf lessons this past winter in an attempt to break golf’s stereotype as an elite sport. Besides Bocharov, the StudioGolf team also includes two Russian professional golfers/instructors.

“We were delighted to become the first Miura dealer in Russia, as Miura’s philosophy fits perfectly with our own philosophy,” says Bocharov, a longtime golf enthusiast. “We are working on increasing the awareness of Miura golf clubs here in Russia and, from what I see, a number of serious Russian golfers have already shown genuine interest in Miura’s world-famous craftsmanship. We look forward to capitalizing on that interest.”
