FAIRMONT HOTELS & RESORTS said its Fairmont
Pierre Marques Golf Club in Acapulco closed March 10 to undergo a
$3 million renovation that will be supervised by golf course
designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. The course is scheduled to reopen
in December. As part of the renovation, the golf course will
install a new species of grass -- Seashore Paspalum -- that is
better suited to Acapulco's tropical conditions. The golf course
will also raise and reshape the fairways to improve playability and
drainage, and install a practice facility for guests. The golf
course is adjacent to the 14-story Fairmont Acapulco Princess. For
