Abstract: With the spate of anti-golf letters in our newspapers, it is more than reasonable to start clamouring for a nationwide referendum on the issue before any decision is taken. The Times could ask a simple question, like "Do you agree that Malta should invest in more golf courses, apart from the Marsa one?", rather than a three-pronged question like last time which took the wind out of the sails of the anti-golf camp. From the latest information available, one can say that: The current EIA process is flawed, since the EIA for the Xaghra 1-Hamra site is well under way, without the TOR (terms of reference) having first been completed. Doubts exist as to who will foot the final bill should the Xaghra golfing proposal not go through-to date, only the Lm10,000 to be paid to ADI Associates and the Lm30,000 to be paid to Hawthorn Consultants have been disclosed. This time round, there is no hapless Anglu Xuereb to foot the bill, but rather a more than wary taxpayer.
