Golf is a completely new sport in the Barents Cooperation. It has yet to get off the ground in Russia, but interest in the other countries is growing. This is an exciting venture and the plan is for both boys and girls to play together in the Barents Games in a competition along the lines of the Ryder Cup.

8 players from each country participate: 15 – 18 years old – 2 boys and 2 girls,
19 – 23 years old – 2 boys and 2 girls.

When Barents Winter Games takes place in Luleå 16-18 March 2018, more than 1000 young athletes from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Russia will compete in 15 different sports, including three parasports.
