With the news of a new relationship between the United States and Cuba today, you can expect that more development dollars will pour into the nation as it attracts visitors from it's very new, and massive neighbour

The Country Club of Havana hosted the @PGATOUR in the 1950's...but now there is but one 18 hole golf course in the country, at Varadero. 

Right now there are not the facilities (courses) in Cuba that could host a PGA TOUR event but if new courses are built do you think the PGA TOUR could/should consider a return to the country?

As they get more normalized relations, I'm sure there will be a building boom. If it can pull it off, the PGA should definitely go back. Web.com spends a lot of time down south, so I'm sure they'd try it out first. 

As an aside, I'm going on a March break trip for the first time ever, and am thinking of trying hard for Cuba before tourism ramps up and prices /numbers skyrocket. Only 1 course though? Maybe not lol.
