TROON GOLF TO MANAGE FOREST OAKS COUNTRY CLUB

Posted on March 20, 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 Forest Oaks Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. Its traditional style, strategic challenges, and immaculate playing conditions, have made Forest Oaks one of North Carolina's top private golf courses.

Forest Oaks Country Club was built in the early 1960s by renowned architect Ellis Maples, a protégé of legendary course designer Donald Ross. Immediately, it was recognized as one of the state's greatest tests of golf and was a regular stop on the PGA Tour for nearly 30 years. As the course matured over time, alterations became necessary and in 2002, Davis Love III's Love Design Group was given the task of restoring the course to its former glory. The goal of the renovation was to make the course even more aesthetically pleasing and to improve the nature of its strategic tests. While the championship tees and fairways were repositioned to challenge even the longest of hitters, additional tee boxes were also repositioned to create a fair challenge for the double-digit handicapper.

"Troon Golf is excited to continue its expansion into North Carolina by managing Forest Oaks Country Club," stated Hud Hinton, president and COO, Troon Golf. "We are confident that our management practices will contribute positively to the club's long-established reputation."

With five sets of tees ranging from just over 5,000 yards to well over 7,000 yards, Forest Oaks offers a highly playable yet challenging game for all ability levels. Forest Oaks also has one of North Carolina's finest practice facilities, with a natural-grass practice tee, chipping area, practice bunker, and arguably the largest practice putting greens in the state.

"We are very excited to have Troon Golf managing Forest Oaks Country Club and believe their involvement will be beneficial to our members and guests," stated Rodger Doyle, general manager, Forest Oaks. "Their commitment to customer service and great playing conditions will help us meet our goal of improving the club."

The club also features eight tennis courts built to tournament specifications and an excellent year-around tennis program.
