BRINGING A WORLD OF GOLF TO AZERBAIJAN

Golf is a relatively new sport in Azerbaijan. The driving force establishing the sport in the country is the Azerbaijan Golf Federation (AQF) (Azərbaycan Qolf Federasiyası). Formed in 2012, its key objectives are to ensure that Azerbaijan as a nation understands, respects and learns to love the game.

The AQF has a five-point strategic plan. As a member, Dreamland applies the same through processes to its operations and supports AQF events, programmes and initiatives, such as the junior Flames Golf programme, to work towards the joint goal of bringing the game of golf to the land of fire. These five points are as follows:
