TROON GOLF DEBUTS IN MICHIGAN

Posted on June 08, 2000

Contracted to Oversee Golf Club Operations for the Governors Collection in Lansing

SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Troon Golf, recognized as the world leader in management, development and marketing of luxury brand golf facilities, will debut in the state of Michigan, managing golf operations for the Governors Collection, a remarkable upscale real estate development in Lansing, Michigan.

Developed by North American Equities of Grosse Pointe, the Governors Collection will occupy 288 acres adjacent to Michigan State University and is conveniently located within the nationally acclaimed Okemos School District.

The development calls for a luxury residential village of single family homes featuring upscale estate manors, condominiums, restaurants, and limited commercial office space in a central park setting, surrounded by the golf course. In such close proximity to the University, the idyllic upscale residential golf course setting is unique to the Lansing area.

"Troon Golf will be a key partner in the progress of this development," said North American Equities spokesperson, Robert Kolt. "The company's superior expertise in upscale golf course developments, combined with their international prominence will surely help make the Governors Collection Golf Course and housing Lansing's best address - one that people in this area have not seen before."

Slated to open in mid-2002, the Governors Collection Golf Course is the work of PGA Tour veteran, Davis Love, III. His remarkable routing makes full use of the nearby pastoral farmland dotted by wooded areas. Love's design trademark is his penchant to meld the golf course with the natural setting with minimal disruption to the terrain, creating long, low-flowing contours that are aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable to play.

The Governors Collection Golf Course will feature a full-service 20,000 square foot clubhouse allowing ample banquet and meeting space, plus a 3,000 square foot fitness center with tennis and swimming. A limited number of townhomes will be available as lodging accommodations.

"We are proud to partner with North American Equities and to play a major role during this developmental phase of the Governors Collection," said Troon Golf's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dana Garmany. "We are thrilled to have this opportunity to offer our ‘Troon Golf Experience' to all golfers in the Lansing area."

Troon Golf will oversee the construction phase of the golf course and, upon completion, will operate an upscale daily-fee facility with special membership privileges extended to the homeowners and residents living within the Governors Collection neighborhoods.

Through the company's commitment to exacting operations standards, residents and guests of the Governors Collection will enjoy the same superior agronomy, playing conditions, and attentive customer service that Troon Golf creates at many of the world's finest golf facilities.

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Troon Golf has over 60 management and development contracts in 13 states and 7 countries. Troon Golf facilities include Turnberry Hotel Golf Courses and Spa, A Westin Resort, Ayrshire, Scotland; Troon North Golf Club, Scottsdale, Arizona; The Ridge at Castle Pines North, Castle Rock, Colorado; Eagle Ridge Inn & Resort, Galena, Illinois; and Cabo del Sol, Los Cabos, Mexico.
