Some golf courses to make way for redevelopment plans
NAPLES — I am going to tell you why Jimmy Walker, at age 35, has won three golf tournaments in the past five months after going oh for his first 188 Tour events. Im going to tell you why every American player on this years Ryder Cup team will be a better player come October, if they are open to learning something. Im going to tell you why signing up Tom Watson as U.S. Ryder Cup captain was a smart move by the PGA of America and Watsons decision to bring in Ray Floyd as one of his assistants was smarter yet. Im going to tell you how John Merrick won last year at Riviera, even though the marketing department would prefer you to call it (and understandably so) the Northern Trust Open.

Two golf courses to be phased out by 2024
The lease for the SICCs other Bukit course will only be extended if it can work out with the labour movement how to reconfigure its courses and possibly share its facilities by February next year. The authorities also suggested that the labour movement discuss the possibility of offering some arrangement to Keppel Club members at the public course. This depends, of course, on all the parties being able to agree on terms, they said. The changes affected about 200ha of land in all.
