Director Anthony Baxter goes on a journey to other global golfing hot spots where rapacious developers are building massive luxury resorts with little thought for the local environment or population.

From the historic site of Dubrovnik to the ancient sand dunes and rolling green hills of the seaside town of Balmedie, these tycoons bully local residents, influence governments, ignore local referendums and even meddle in national environmental policies to acquire their latest trophies.

Through in-depth interviews with different players involved and footage showing the damage caused, Baxter reveals just how devastating these golf courses can be to the surrounding countryside and water tables.
