Yes very interesting link from Neil provided.  Was struck by the study from the Golf Tourism Development Group.

And visiting golfers who stay overnight spend more, on average, than almost any other type of tourist. In 2016, the VisitScotland/Scottish Enterprise Scotland Golf Visitor Survey found that the average spend for a golfer staying overnight, excluding those on a package trip, was 245.18 per person per night. Visitors from overseas tended to spend the most, averaging 338.49 per night, with those visiting from North America spending considerably more (405.27 per night) than visitors from Europe (257.18). The full survey can be found here.

Jeff Schley:
Also on the C4C site they mention what is next if they get planning approval. Does anyone recall or perhaps it is in this thread somewhere of those other 2 developers who showed interested apart from the Keiser group?

If planning permission is granted Mike Keiser, Todd Warnock and Bill Coore (of the renowned golf course Architects Coore & Crenshaw), collectively the developers behind the original golf course application, were not the only party interested in Coul Links.  Two other golf course developers, both fronted by multi-Major winning golfers, also expressed firm interest in creating a world class golf course at Coul Links.
Therefore, if Communities for Coul is successful and planning permission is finally granted, we will invite developers with the skill and sensitivity to create the world class golf course this special site warrants to submit appropriate tenders.

Be careful what you wish for...
