Troon’s appointment adds further precedence to the development and builds on the market-leaders impressive academy portfolio within Europe and around the globe.

The innovative indoor development, the first of its kind in Moscow, features ten state-of-the-art simulators making it the largest indoor golf facility in Russia. Conveniently located directly opposite the Kremlin and within Red October, the facility features amenities synonymous with all Troon Golf Academies, including tuition and custom fitting with dedicated PGA Professional golfers and the very latest in golf equipment.

“This is an extremely exciting development for Troon as it adds an all-new option to our portfolio which is sure to appeal to travelling golfers looking for a unique experience along with the added benefit of year-round play,” commented Bruce Glasco, Senior Vice-President and Managing Director, Troon International Operations. “The Troon Academy brand has seen fantastic growth in the past year with owners continuing to choose Troon for our expert knowledge and guidance in order to deliver sustainable developments and encourage interaction with their facilities.”

City Golf reinforces Troon’s mantra to provide exceptional, incomparable golf experiences across its ever-increasing portfolio. Further recently unveiled Troon Golf Academies include the spectacular 7,500 sq.ft facility at the Agalarov Estate to the east of Moscow, which saw host to fifteen Miss Universe contestants for its official opening celebrations. In addition to both venues near Moscow, Don Golf & Country Club, located in Rostov-on-Don, has seen significant growth following the launch of its TroonAcademy, encouraging increased participation within a city previously void of golf and golfers.

Troon has also seen growth in their Academy portfolio on an international level, with the stunning VelaaGolfAcademy by Olazábal located in the Maldives which will officially open with a visit from José María Olazábal in February 2014. Created in collaboration with the two-time Major Champion, the Academy is located in the solitude of the private island located north of Malé, within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives.

Each Troon Golf Academy is built on firm values of interaction and accessibility for all; venues throughout the portfolio implement Troon’s relaxed dress rules to encourage a friendly, comfortable atmosphere for the entire family. Coupled with first-class services and the very latest equipment, Troon is setting a new benchmark for coaching facilities across the globe.
