TROON GOLF ADDS HISTORIC YAHNUNDASIS GOLF CLUB TO PRIVATE CLUB PORTFOLIO

Posted on June 12, 2007
Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce the agreement to manage the historic Yahnundasis Golf Club, a private club established in 1897 in Utica, N.Y.

The current course was built in 1924 by famed golfer and course architect Walter J. Travis, the 1900, 1901 and 1903 U.S. Amateur and 1904 British Amateur champion. Transformed from open farm land in Upstate New York, the par-71 championship course winds its way through tree-lined fairways, dramatic elevation changes and meandering creeks. The course has been designed to challenge players of every skill level and has grown accustomed to hosting local, regional and statewide tournaments throughout its long history. This tradition will continue in July 2007 when the club hosts the 85th New York State Men's Amateur Championship.

"Troon Golf is excited to partner with Yahnundasis Golf Club," stated Hud Hinton, president and COO, Troon Golf. "We are confident that our management practices will contribute positively to the club's long-established reputation."

Yahnundasis, a club known for its colorful history, has contributed to one of golf's longest running traditions. Since 1905, Yahnundasis has competed annually against a rivaling country club, located just two miles away. Named after the founder of Yahnundasis, The McLoughlin Cup is a match play tournament that many believe to be the oldest, continuous interclub competition in the United States. The club also features an English Tudor designed clubhouse equipped with a well-stocked golf shop, intimate dining room, pool and tennis facilities, and spacious locker rooms.

"We are confident that Yahnundasis will experience continued success by partnering with Troon Golf and look forward to the benefits of their management and agronomy expertise," said Peter Hobaica, president and board member of Yahnundasis Golf Club.
