Forty-seven years after golf was virtually wiped off the island of Cuba,
the game may soon make a comeback, the St. Petersburg Times reports.
Cuban tourism officials are reportedly considering a major investment in
new golf courses across the island to boost its sagging tourism industry.
''The message coming from the Cubans is: bring us golf projects,'' Mark
Entwistle, a former Canadian ambassador to Cuba who represents one
investor group, told the Times.
A dozen golf projects around the island are on the drawing board, the
newspaper added, each consisting of hundreds of villas and apartments
built around the courses.
