New golf course complexes planned for Cuba

Travellers on Cuba holidays will soon be able to take advantage of new golf courses as developments are underway to build two brand new complexes just outside of the capital Havana.

The new deal has been signed by two companies to develop two golf course hotel complexes in Cuba which will provide a service centre and housing as well as facilities for travellers on Cuba holidays. The deal has been agreed between the Housing and Urban Development Corporation (HUD) and Cuba's Palmares SA Group who will launch a joint company especially for the project with a 50 per cent stake each.

Each complex will occupy an area of approximately 300 -400 ha and will be located just 25km from Cuba's capital city Havana.
As the number of travellers taking Cuba holidays rises, so does the need for Cuba hotels and the development of these two complexes will not only provide jobs for local Cubans but will also provide a much needed boost to the island's tourism and travel sector.

The Palmares SA Group is planning to assess the land value with the help of consultants where they will then submit an application to the Ministry of Finance in Cuba.

The director of HUD Caribe Viet Nam believes that the joint project will be very successful primarily because of the complexes' close proximity to Jose Marti International Airport and Havana, making it easier for travellers on golfing trips or holidays in Cuba to get to.
Cuba have also agreed to HUD's plans to invest in a large hotel project in Havana and plans to upgrade Camaguey's five star hotel, the Capri Hotel.
