Facilities Notes: Course To Be Called St. Andrews International Golf Club
A new golf course being designed by former Open champion Tom Weiskopf on the outskirts of St. Andrews "will carry the Fife town’s name in its title after a bid to block that failed." The course will be called the St. Andrews Int'l Golf Club as planned and construction work is "set to start in the next few weeks." St. Andrews Links Trust objected to the proposed name but a complaint has been denied by the World Intellectual Property Organisation in Switzerland (SCOTSMAN, 2/26). ... Glasgow Airport is bringing forward £10M ($15M) of investment, which will see its int'l arrivals hall revamped ahead of the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The expansion and improvement of the int'l hall "forms part of a general terminal overhaul to ensure the site is ready to deal with the athletes and spectators expected for the sporting event" (HERALD SCOTLAND, 2/26). ...Edinburgh Monarchs speedway bosses conceded that the club’s proposed move to Ingliston is “dead in the water” for this season and are now looking at a possible entry date of '14 (SCOTSMAN, 2/23).
