Resort developer Leisure Canada Inc. announced it signed an exclusive agreement with the United Kingdom-based Professional Golfers Association Ltd. (PGA) for “future licensing” of the company’s golf courses and associated real estate developments in Cuba.

Toronto-based Leisure Canada is developing three luxury resorts in Cuba; the Jibacoa resort is planned to include a golf course and condominiums. 

Under the  agreement, PGA granted Leisure Canada an exclusive long-term license in Cuba to jointly develop golf facilities. The PGA brand includes “PGA Village, Cuba”, “PGA National, Cuba”, “PGA National Golf Course, Cuba”, “PGA National Golf Academy, Cuba”, “PGA Golf Course”, “PGA Resort Course”, “PGA Golf Academy” and “PGA Academy Course”.

Landing the prestigious PGA brand is a coup for Leisure Canada amid what could become a golf-related construction boom on the island. The Cuban government is expected to soon approve 16 golf course condominium projects by a half-dozen investor groups.

“With the PGA, we have found the ideal partner to develop the game of golf in Cuba alongside our development projects,” said Leisure Canada Chairman Ned Goodman.

“Working together with the Cuban government and the people of Cuba, we hope to further develop the game of golf in the country for the benefit of tourists and Cubans alike”, said Guy Moran, head of property and development for the PGA.

Founded in 1901, the PGA is the world’s oldest professional golfers’ association. The PGA, one of golf’s leading bodies, manages almost 1,000 golf event days annually.
