Accessibility of the location to the market
Quality of the environment from the golfing viewpoint
Risk of visual, noise, construction intrusion in the future
Potential of the land to create a world class golfing facility
Competing facilities in the surrounding area
Availability of good soil , water for irrigation
Interface with other proposed facilities in the development
