Golf News December 2014

If you are interested in golf industry news, take a look at  Robert J. Vasilak’s “World Golf Report”.  Mr. Vasilak seems to be ahead of the curve, when it comes to reporting golf development news.  I’m sure you will also enjoy his sharp wit.

Bay Hill and Omni Tucson National thi...

It’s an unusual week – the US PGA is playing the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill and the US Senior PGA is at Catalina Course at Omni Tucson National. Both venues have ties to vHS&B.

Anfi Tauro -Gran Canaria – Spai...

Recently came across this video of Anfi Tauro.  It actually provides a good overview of Anfi.  And, we love the British narrator (even his swing looks completely relaxed)!! As he say’s, “Let’s have a look…” Anfi Tauro was the longest golf design project we’ve ever undertaken.  In fact, it likely competes f [...]

Approximately 150 golf courses close each year.  This has been the trend for past 5 years at least.  And, this trend will continue for the foreseeable future.
