Posted on March 28, 2008
Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it has been selected to manage Dismal River Club in Mullen, Neb. The club features an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Course that rolls through the natural terrain of the Sandhills, located in the north-central region of the state.

Dismal River Club, ranked among Golfweek's BEST NEW COURSES list in 2007, offers the purest form of links-style golf. The design is one that truly reflects Nicklaus' philosophy of creating courses that blend with the native elements of their surroundings. Dismal River also features elevated tees that provide panoramic views of the Dismal River Valley, once home to thousands of roaming bison. The course's rustic charm is defined by its windswept bunkers, natural contours and ruggedly beautiful terrain.

"Dismal River Club is an exciting addition to our portfolio," stated Hud Hinton, president and COO, Troon Golf. "The course's extraordinary setting and natural beauty distinguish it from many of America's modern courses. We believe that Dismal River's unique characteristics, combined with the unparalleled service and playing conditions that Troon Golf is known for, will create an unforgettable experience for members and guests."

Dismal River Club also boasts an expansive clubhouse constructed of warm-colored woods. Its high ceilings present spacious areas for its golf shop, poker and pool rooms, theater, saloon and horseshoe pits. Upscale dining can also be enjoyed at the clubhouse with a menu featuring fine steaks, fresh seafood and wild game. Accommodations include luxurious cabins reminiscent of the lodges built by pioneers who once inhabited the valley. Staying in a cabin is considered far from "roughing it." The cabin's amenities include down pillows, king-sized beds, large-screen plasma TVs, high-speed Wi-Fi and mini-bars.

"The owners of Dismal River Club conducted a thoughtful and deliberate search and came to the conclusion that the best fit for management of Dismal River was Troon Golf," stated Don Bouc, owner of Dismal River Club. "Under Troon's private operating division, Privé, Dismal River Club will join other elite private clubs around the world. With Troon Golf's professional management, we are positioned to emerge as a pre-eminent private golf destination."
