TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - The latest issue of The Report on (Small)
Business magazine shows how small Canadian businesses are coping with big
competition and evolving environmental pressures. With star-studded vendors
chasing ever fewer contracts, Tom McBroom, Canada's top golf course designer
-- but relatively unknown outside the country -- found out first hand that
measured positioning and stepping out of your comfort zone into new markets
are the keys to surviving the competition from PGA legends. Globe and Mail
sports writer Michael Grange explores the challenges of a business staying
afloat in an industry that's not only hypercompetitive and increasingly
globalized, but also heavily slanted to a green jacket-clad star system.
Welcome to the world of (celebrity) golf course design!

offers tips on how other businesses can follow suit.
Rare air - Reviving a Canadian tradition: the perseverance story of a
