|The KING is Back|
Greg Norman is a two-time Major Champion and was No.1 in the world for 331 weeks, a true legend of the sport. And KING COBRA was the backbone of his success - the innovative technology that drove his play. Now KING returns, with another product that is worthy of the name.|
COBRA Golf recently announced the return of KING to the product line with the launch of the new KING LTD Driver. Fueled by research in space, the KING LTD features a revolutionary SpacePort design that allowed the brand’s R&D team to strategically position the Center of Gravity (CG) and make COBRA Golf’s key internal speed and stability technologies visible for the first time.
The KING LTD Driver represents COBRA’s finest technology without compromise. Created with premium materials and state-of-the-art technology, the KING LTD driver is the longest and straightest driver they have ever created. KING LTD truly is The Ultimate Distance Machine.
Availability for KING LTD begins in the US in early November at a suggested retail price of $449. For more information, please visit cobragolf.com.

In addition to the Greg Norman signature golf course, the five-star residential community and outdoor recreational resort has plans for 700 luxury homes, ski lodge designed in the classic Great Camp architectural style, hotel and spa, marina, restaurants, vibrant Downtown Tupper, extensive cross country ski and hiking trails, fly fishing school, guided hunting and fishing, sailing and everything expected at a four season mountain resort.
"My father is all about building up this vision," Morgan-Leigh said. "He sees Tom and Susan Lawson’s (developers) vision, and he just wants to be a part of it. He fell in love with it the second he got here, so he came back and kind of tasked everyone in his office to get on board and to live this story and to tell this story and help bring to reality their vision."

Protecting the environment was a primary objective for the developer and Greg Norman at El Desafío. Tees, fairways and roughs were seeded with fine fescues, ensuring excellent playability, firm and fast conditions as well as low irrigation and fertilization needs. Native areas surround the course and were left untouched, providing beautiful contrasts to the course. The state of the art irrigation system is 100% gravity fed ensuring no pumps and no electricity consumption.
Although the course is private, outside play is possible at the Par 72, 7100 yard course by arranging tee times at email@example.com. The formal golf season runs from September through May, although winter plays is possible as well. More information is available at www.eldesafioresort.com, Facebook or Twitter (@eldesafioresort).
El Desafío is located just outside the town of San Martín de los Andes, in Northern Patagonia, Argentina. The course is 5 minutes away from Chapelco International Airport, with daily service from Buenos Aires as well as international private flights. The course is also within 5 minutes of the Jack Nicklaus designed Chapelco Golf Club, a top 5 course in Argentina. Both courses make San Martín an excellent golf destination that complements its outstanding fly fishing, trekking, mountain biking and skiing.
