Golf in Cuba
Golf made its first appearance in Cuba between 1910-1920. The first demonstrations were made by American amateur players, who had settled on the island after the intervention of 1898 and the establishment of the Republic in 1902.
The development of golf and the real estate agencies associated to this sport are a strategy to boost the development of the tourism in Cuba.
However, there are only a few golf courses in Cuba. The most popular ones are the Varadero Golf Club and the Havana Golf Club.
