Le Meridien Moscow Country Club hosted the 14th annual President's Golf Cup on the 31st of May. The first tournament took place in 1994. At that time golf had already gained some popularity in Moscow through the popularity of the Moscow City Golf Club founded four years earlier. The number of Russian players steadily grows every year. Land Rover has been a committed sponsor of the event from the very beginning. ďThis particular tournament contributes to the development of the local educational programs, thatís why we are happy to support this prestigious sport event,Ē said Dmitry Kolchanov, General Director of Jaguar Land Rover Russia. As usual, Land Rover offered a special prize for a ďHole-In-One,Ē a brand new Land Rover Freelander 2, which has only been on sale since March 2007. It is important to mention that the Presidentís Golf Cup is a charity event; all the money goes to support childrenís causes from pediatric surgery to pre-schooling for the disabled.
