Cuba wants more golf courses

Cuba wants more golf courses
Posted on Sun, Mar. 30, 2008

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.
