Dreamland Golf Club Azerbaijan
The Dreamland golf course is an 18-hole manmade masterpiece designed by leading landscape architect Cynthia Dye. It provides a premium tournament golf experience in the Caucasus with a refreshing Mediterranean feel. Dye designed it in such a way as to include all the intricacies of golf while still being very playable, which is important as Dreamland seeks to popularise the sport in Azerbaijan. The beautifully manicured course is scattered with native olive trees that lend a lovely local feel and while there are some ups and downs, it remains relatively flat which helps beginners. That said, the abundance of large bunkers and water features present serious challenges for more experienced golfers, as do Baku’s infamous winds. Dreamland has a fantastic Clubhouse with restaurants, cafes and a golf shop. There are even a hotel, shopping mall and fitness centre. Another key feature is the Dreamland Golf Academy, a state-of-the-art facility designed to help guests improve their golf.
A comprehensive range of lessons is available at the superb Dreamland Golf Academy, world-class teaching that is fully focused on improving technique and efficiency. Lesson packages include individual, group and junior lessons, as well as TPI-specific and technology-focused lessons. For full details of the available lessons and prices, see the Dreamland website.
The Dreamland Golf Shop sells a wide range of equipment and clothing and stocks all the leading brands, including Galvin Green, PING, Ralph Lauren, FootJoy, Crest Link and Greg Norman. You can find everything here from Footjoy shoes to travel luggage and money clips, key rings, cufflinks. For full details of what is available, see the Dreamland website.
Dreamland offers a variety of membership packages, from Academy Membership – ideal for those new to golf, to Individual Membership – giving you access to the best tee times, and Couples & Family Membership – where each member can enjoy the course, Academy and Clubhouse.
