China, India, Sri Lanka lead list of hottest spots for hoteliers

Where tourists go, golf courses are sure to follow. And these days, the world’s best-known hoteliers are zeroing in on locations in Asia, particularly those that aren’t already overstocked with high-end properties. The hottest of the hot spots, according to the New York Times, are China (by a landslide), India, Sri Lanka and Myanmar, but some destinations that are clearly off the beaten track – Bhutan and Laos, for example, as well as unnamed islands in Indonesia and the Philippines – are said to be generating interest as well. It’s no coincidence that every one of the aforementioned places is expected to see substantive golf development in the coming years. In our business, the easiest way to make a living is simply to follow the money.
