I thought that <body> tag was required by html4.01 recommendation
but the following sample verifies as ok by validator.w3
Amaya caught the error though as unmatched </body> tag.

<p> With over 40 golf courses in the Niagara Region and many more being
built, the
Niagara Region is quickly becoming an ideal golf getaway. The region offers
a variety
of different courses, that suits all playing styles. As an avid player in
the region, I am
often frustrated when trying to decide which course to play. <strong> Price
</strong> is
one of the major reasons that influences a player's decision on what course
to play. Most
players want to know beforehand, what the green fees are, in order to budget
They don't want to have to make 5 different phone calls, in order to find
out costs.
<p> Hence the development of this informative website. This site will help
in the region acquire important information quickly and will help allow them
to spend more
time on the course. This site will provide a list of:
<li> courses in the region </li>
<li> their contact information </li>
<li> their green fees (weekday and weekend- 9 & 18 holes) </li>
<img src="images/sawmill3.jpg" alt="golf course">
<p> The prices will for simplicity, only list: Weekday (9 & 18 holes) rates
and Weekend
(9 & 18 holes) rates. These prices will be the standard prices, as we won't
take into
account any specials that might be occurring (i.e. spring rates, lunch
specials, twilight
deals, etc.). For information on specials you'll have to contact the
individual course.
These prices will be regularly checked and updated when required.
<p> This will be an ideal reference tool for all golfers in the Niagara
Region and
beyond, with lots of room for potential and growth.<br>
<strong>This site will definitely be a handy reference tool, that you'll
want to bookmark. </strong>
