Del Webb Creating a New Club Experience for Active Adults in Northwest Phoenix

Scottsdale, Ariz. - Corte Bella, Del Webb's first active adult country club community, will feature an unparalleled private club experience for homebuyers looking for a relaxed setting in an exclusive and beautifully crafted home development. Troon Golf,® the world leader in luxury golf management, is shaping its management of Corte Bella to present superlative playing and service standards in manner that melds with their more relaxed outlook on private membership.

The decision to contract Troon Golf represents the continuing business relationship and a further melding of two very strong brands in the companies' respective industries. Pulte Homes' Del Webb brand will now bring together the popular attributes of Del Webb's most successful offerings in active adult and upscale country clubs. Troon also manages Del Webb's esteemed Anthem Golf and Country Clubs in Phoenix and Las Vegas.

The 720-acre gated Del Webb community opened for sales in March and is now under development north of Bell Road on Deer Valley Drive, adjacent to Sun City West. Corte Bella will offer up to 1,850 homes and villas surrounded by fountains, flowering courtyards, gated arched entries, with a full complement of amenities that include golf, fitness and spa complex, tennis, café and lounge.

"We are pleased to partner with Del Webb in this spectacular and innovative golf community," stated Troon Golf Executive Vice President, Acquisition & Development, Tim Schantz. "We intend our presence at Corte Bella Golf Club to vitalize the club experiences and preferences for a diverse membership."

Scheduled to open in January 2004, the Corte Bella golf experience will unfold on a magnificent golf course designed by Phoenix-based golf course architect Greg Nash. In a setting inspired by Mediterranean villages and the Santa Barbara-style architecture featured throughout the development, his 7,000-yard layout will be a stunning departure from the desert and semi-tropical designs of neighboring courses. Stands of Italian Cypress and Aleppo Pines will line the fairways to create both comfort and challenge on a traditional-style course that will appeal to every member who joins Corte Bella Golf Club.

"Golf is a vital amenity in the Del Webb community lifestyle," stated Sam Colgan, vice president, land development of Pulte's Arizona Active Adult Division, which develops and builds Del Webb branded communities. "At Corte Bella, our intention is to maximize the country club golf experience in a very comfortable setting. Troon Golf enables us to combine the most appreciated traditional country club essentials with our vision of a relaxed and vibrant lifestyle that will make Corte Bella unique to private club operations."
