At the time […]

Golf, Anyone?

Golf, Anyone?Golf, Anyone? As Anguilla heads into general elections (which will in all likelihood be held in early 2010) the issues concerning the golf course and resort development at Rendezvous Bay may well be a key component of the political discussions–regardless of whether or not the golf course is open or construction has recommenced by […]
