Cuba is finally getting around to approving second through fifth golf courses for foreign tourists. The country has 2100 miles of coastline, and there's nothing golfers like more than playing next to the sea. There's a recently discovered golf course grass that thrives despite salt spray, so it's become easier to build courses next to the ocean than in the past. After 50 years of Castro, Cuba is so ridiculously poor that all sorts of financially feasible win-win deals could be worked out between the U.S. and Cuba. Back in 2008, I suggested Baseball Diplomacy to President Bush. Perhaps Obama could try Golf Diplomacy? But, you never hear much about Cuba as a foreign policy topic. I guess it's too close to America to think about.
