All 27 Greens Receive Major Upgrades to Enhance Quality

Scottsdale, Arizona - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce that a $2.7 million renovation at Badlands Golf Club, located in Las Vegas, Nev., is near completion. When overseeding is completed in late October, players will notice a major improvement in the putting surfaces on the Desperado, Diablo and Outlaw greens. Badlands will continue to have 18 holes open for play during the overseeding process.

The renovation, which began in May 2007, was aimed at enhancing the "feel" and improving the drainage of all 27 greens at Badlands. Starting with the Desperado course and finishing with Diablo and Outlaw, every green was removed to the subsurface and completely rebuilt. The greens were also grassed with upgraded Pennlinks Bentgrass putting surfaces, marking the first time in the club's history that all three courses feature consistent surfaces.

"We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the renovation," stated Chad Pettingill, general manager, Badlands Golf Club. "We believe the improvements help establish Badlands as a premier place to play in the Las Vegas area."

In addition to upgraded greens, Badlands also improved several bunkers, added new tee boxes and completely resurfaced numerous others. The driving range tee was also resurfaced during the renovation and the practice green was greatly increased in size. A brand new short-game practice area will also be complete in October and will feature a pitching & chipping area, practice bunker and an additional putting green.
