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.
