Reports indicate that a new golf course could soon be built on the Caribbean island of Cuba.

Reuters reports that the Cuban Government and a Chinese company named Beijing Enterprise Group have signed a letter of intent to build a new course and resort.

The site of the proposed course is between the resort of Varadero and the capital, Havana, on the country’s northern coast.

A general ban on travel to Cuba is still in place for US citizens, with only Cuban-Americans allowed to travel to the country. However, legislation was recently introduced in the US Congress to lift this ban.

The planned resort could pave the way for a number of similar developments in Cuba, with the country’s government reportedly indicating it wants at least 12 golf resorts on the island in the future.
