Sports travel planners, take note: International sports destinations are on the rise with the opening of a golf facility in Mexico, a reflection of the growth the sport is expected to have as a result of its appearance in the summer 2016 Olympics in Rio.

Travel Weekly reports that Wright Balance Golf Academy will expand to a year-round golf instruction and practice facility at El Cid Golf & Country Club in Mazatlan.

The academy features balance measurement and balance fitting systems to help train golfers from beginner to professional levels.
