New study to develop golf in Greece

12.10am 10th September 2001 - Course Development

The Golf Consultants Association (GCA) has been appointed by The Fuji Bank (London) who are currently undertaking a tourism study on behalf of the Greek government and Hellenic Tourist Organisation. One objective is to develop Rhodes as a golfing destination.

Bryan Griffiths, chairman of the Golf Consultants Association is delighted with the appointment. “This is great news for the GCA,” he said. “It effectively means that we will be helping to develop golf course sites in Greece and putting Rhodes on the map in terms of golfing excellence”

The GCA’s collective experience of 275 years client service in more than 50 countries involving 2,150 assignments was instrumental in the appointment by The Fuji Bank. The Hellenic Tourist Organisation has an extensive portfolio of hotels, marinas and golf sites and the aim of The Fuji Bank study is to formulate a strategy to privatise these assets.

Work is already underway with GCA members throughout the eight disciplines assessing the potential of prospective golf sites on the picturesque island of Rhodes.
