Lukashenka gives a go-ahead for golf course

A sports and tourism complex to include a golf course will be constructed near Minsk by 2010, according to an edict signed by Aliaksandr Lukashenka. It is designed not only to stage international events, but also to popularize the sport among all the ages of the Belarus population.

The State Control Committee has been tasked to oversee the implementation of the presidential edict, reports Interfax.
