Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Flaxby Country Club in England. The club is ideally positioned between Harrogate and York and only 30 minutes from Leeds in North Yorkshire.

Flaxby Country Club is set to become one of the premier golf clubs and leisure venues in the UK. Plans were recently unveiled by a York-based developer called The Skelwith Group to build the area's largest luxury hotel around the existing 27-hole course. The five-star hotel will include more than 300 rooms, four helipads, three restaurants and a luxury spa complex positioned on nearly 300 acres of rolling North Yorkshire countryside. The development, which is expected to be completed in 2011, will offer unrivalled luxury with individual rooms being sold to investors.

"We are excited to partner with The Skelwith Group on what is sure to become one of the most spectacular golf facilities in the region," stated Bruce Glasco, Troon Golf's senior vice president & managing director, Europe, Middle East & Africa. "We are confident that combining The Flaxby Country Club's new luxury amenities with the skill and experience of Troon Golf will result in a high level of success for the entire development."

Flaxby Country Club will also feature conference facilities, nature trails and a 24-hour driving range. The course is a classical Yorkshire course and currently features more than 18,000 newly-planted trees and several lakes. The par 72 18-hole course is nearly 7,000 yards from the championship tees and offers tee positions for all skill levels as well. The club also includes a new nine-hole, par 35 academy course.

"This hotel and spa will be the North of England's premier destination for business, leisure and all special occasions," stated Paul Ellis, managing director of The Skelwith Group. "It will boost the local and regional economy and be the last word in luxury travel experience."

Course improvements will be made to help in the bidding process of bringing major tournaments to Flaxby Country Club in the future.
