General Manager of the Golden Tulip Accra,Herbert Friese, at the weekend stated at the Achimota Golf Club that the Golden Tulip Hospitality Group was exploring opportunities of opening new hospitality facilities in the country.

The new facilities are the City Hotel in Kumasi and the Atlantic Hotel in Takoradi. Both facilities, he noted, were adjacent to golf courses and therefore offered the hotels and their guests great opportunities to be involved with the game.
