Golfing history in Kazakhstan

8.30am 23rd September 2005 - Courses

The European Challenge Tour is making golfing history with a journey to the Republic of Kazakhstan for the country’s first professional golf tournament, the Kazakhstan Open, to be played at the Nurtau Golf Club, Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Nurtau Golf Club was opened by seven time European Tour Order of Merit winner Colin Montgomerie of Scotland, who played with Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazabraev on his visit to the country in 2003.
The Kazakhstan Open carries a prize fund of €250,000 and is symbolic of the 2005 schedule, representing the pioneering spirit of the Challenge Tour and its policy of breaking new ground and taking the game of golf to as many countries as possible throughout the world.
