Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation

With all my heart I welcome the organisers and participants of VTB Russian Open Golf Championship (Senior) and traditional International Charity Golf Tournament.
The events organised by the Moscow Country Club – an affiliate of GlavUpDK under the MFA of Russia – in a picturesque place in the Moscow region will contribute to further popularisation of this spectacular sport...

Head of GlavUpDK under the MFA of Russia

The fact that VTB Russian Open Golf Championship (Senior) participants, the world’s golf stars, are visiting Russia is a pivotal event for professionals and fans of this sport.
Golf connects people and brings personal harmony and beautiful communication. I am confident that this tournament will contribute to the popularization of golf in our country and heighten the interest of people of all ages...

David MacLaren

Staysure Tour head

It is a great pleasure working together with GlavUpDK and Moscow Country Club in organising the VTB Russian Open Golf Championship (Senior). The Moscow Country Club has recently become part of European Tour Destinations and it is a club which ensures high level of service both on and off the golf course. Cooperation of our organisations helps ensure efficient preparation for the Tournament – logistics, transportation and visa support for participants.  

Ever more golf courses, golfers and golf tournaments are the best evidence of increased popularity of golf in Russia, and the arrival, thanks to GlavUpDK, of world-class stars, such as Sir Colin Montgomerie, will help Russian young golf players perfect their skills and sportsmanship.


Alexander Zhukov

First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation


It is of great importance that the Nakhabino tournament is organised by GlavUpDK under the MFA of Russia, because golf is the leader of diplomacy. It is delightful that we return high-profile tournaments to Russia. I am very glad that this wonderful, aesthetically pleasing game is now an Olympic sport.


Svetlana Zhurova

Olympic champion, Honorary President of the Russian Golf Association, Deputy of the Russian State Duma


Working with GlavUpDK and Moscow Country Club to organise and hold the tournament was a real pleasure. Close cooperation of our organisations helped successfully solve planning issues and ensure efficient logistics, visa and transport support. Our hosts’ hospitality was fabulous.


Andy Stubbs

Managing Director of the Staysure Tour (up to 2016)


The golf course in Nakhabino is in perfect state and credit for this must go to the Moscow Country Club. Scotland with its rigorous climate has more than 500 golf courses. I am sure that eventually golf fans in Russia will have more opportunities to play.


    Colin Stuart Montgomerie

Winner of eight European Tour Order of Merit titles. Winner of the Russian Open Golf Championship (Senior)-2014


The tournament in the Moscow Country Club golf course is an emotionally fantastic time. The golf course is in perfect state, excellently prepared for the game, which is a real pleasure. The Country Club staff were very attentive, promptly responded to all our requests and were ready to solve any problems. Undoubtedly, the event of such class required formidable preparatory work and that ensured the smashing success of the championship.
