A golf course designed to enhance the natural environment and provide pleasure for all players whilst enjoying the unique tranquillity and atmosphere of the beautiful valley and unobtrusive real estate. This is a new and unpretentious type of course for Eastern Europe which will definitely provide a new definition and quality benchmark to many other projects in that region.

The real estate will be placed on the natural elevations which will accommodate great views on to the resort golf course. A sophisticated and generous driving range and practice facilities will provide the right opportunities to everyone who wants to learn the game and the experienced golfers who want to improve their handicap. The design has taken full advantage of the site by nestling the holes between natural wetlands, lakes and the meandering river that crosses the site. The layout will provide challenging shots from the back tees but the front tees will produce much easier conditions for the beginners and average players.

The community is designed by INVI of Switzerland as a series of year round residential neighbourhoods set around a golf course. A market and convenience shops will provide daily amenities for residents and guests. An international school will make this an ideal destination for families wishing to be located near Kiev. Stugna is a self sufficient community, minutes from the Capital, that celebrates the remarkable beauty of a historic and beautiful site.
