Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage golf operations at Lion Lake Resort, located approximately 60 minutes northwest of Guangzhou, China - the country's largest golf market.

The Lion Lake Resort, formerly called the Qingyuan Lion Lake Golf Club, is in the midst of a major renovation project. When fully completed, the development will feature two five-star resorts and convention centers, 36 holes of championship golf, yacht club, hot springs, cultural center, wine vineyards, and a high-end residential community. Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has been chosen to operate one of the luxurious resorts, which will feature 350 rooms.

"We are very pleased to partner with the Lion Lake Group on this exciting project," stated Ryan Walls, senior vice president, managing director, Australasia division. "The team has a clear and creative vision for creating a world-class destination and we are confident that by combining their strengths with Troon Golf's management skills, Lion Lake Resort will be an absolute success."

The two 18-hole courses at Lion Lake were both designed by American golf course architect Rick Jacobson, whose designs have been highly acclaimed by Golf Digest and Golfweek magazine. The first course at Lion Lake will be open for play in August 2009 and the second 18 holes will debut in early summer of 2010. While both courses at Lion Lake represent two different styles, each course utilizes the area's natural surroundings and unique water features to bring them together in harmony.

"After serious consideration, Lion Lake selected Troon Golf because of its notable success not only in the United States, but around the world as well," stated John Ho, vice president, Qingyuan Lion Lake, Yijiehongtai Group Co.
