"We only recently rolled-out a modest sales and marketing program, and are already in discussions with more than 45 courses in the United States, Canada, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia. These are in addition to the more than 50 Greg Norman-designed courses being introduced as a result of our strategic partnership with Greg Norman Golf Course Design and Great White Shark Enterprises.
