Teeing off: Cuba to develop golfing

The government of the Caribbean island of Cuba is attempting to attract wealthy visitors by allowing the development of golf courses.

A new law allows foreign investors to use state-owned land for up to 99 years.

However a number of luxury courses are now in the pipeline, as the BBC's Jack Izzard reports.
