Astana Golf Club
Opened in 2000, the 18-hole Astana Golf Club is an oasis of green in the middle of the steppe that is open from May to November, weather permitting. Attracting Astana’s top brass, including the President himself, the Astana Golf Club will cost you 30,000 KZT a day in green fees for a piece of the action. There is also a driving range adjacent to the clubhouse, and it is possible to rent clubs, carts and even a caddy with prices starting from 2,000 KZT, 10,000 KZT and 2,000 KZT respectively. Otherwise there is always the option to sign up for lifetime membership for a mere 3,000,000 KZT (seriously). In addition, the clubhouse offers a sauna and a restaurant; a day spent here is a very pleasant, if expensive, escape from city life.
