Golf Course For Maldives

Category: Hotels, Posted:19 Mar 2012 | 16:20 pm

Given the recent spate of political problems that have highlighted a government spa ban and pressure by local groups on alcohol use , a possible repositioning of the destination into the golf segment remains a bit fanciful.
With all that water in the Maldives, no doubt sales of golf balls will be a major source of revenue for the Shangri-La.
