Troon Golf to Direct Facelift of Robert Trent Jones Design

Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf,® the recognized world leader in luxury golf management, development, and marketing, has closed Elk Horn Golf Club in Sun Valley, Idaho, for the first complete renovation of this highly-revered 30-year old facility. The course, a father-son collaboration of Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and built in 1976, will receive modern upgrades while maintaining the classic traditions customary to a Jones' design.

Scheduled to reopen Summer 2005, the $6 million renovation project includes a new clubhouse, as well as significant structural and aesthetic modifications to the golf course. Acclaimed golf course architect Dick Phelps will lead the renovation that will highlight and preserve the Jones' classic configuration.

Specific modifications include the installation of a new state-of-the-art irrigation system; the total reconstruction of all 18 greens to USGA specifications, including bentgrass putting surfaces, rebuilding, reshaping, and upgrading the sand in all fairway and greenside bunkers; plus the addition of four new tees at each hole, with special attention given to the new forward teeing areas.
