The Private Jack Nicklaus Signature Joins Privé

Scottsdale, Arizona - Troon Golf, the world leader in luxury brand golf management, development, and marketing, is pleased to announce its recent contract to manage Oblong Valley Golf Club, an exclusive golf development now under construction in Dutchess County, New York on the border with Sharon, Connecticut. Scheduled to open in Fall 2003, the sumptuous private facility will feature the renowned TROON GOLF EXPERIENCE on a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course.

Managing member Edward Catarsi and his team envisioned the opportunity for an extraordinary golf experience in this historic area 90 miles north of New York City and have summoned "only the very best available" in the creation of Oblong Valley Golf Club.

Privé, Private Clubs of Distinction, is a division of Troon Golf focused on delivering the TROON GOLF EXPERIENCE to members by providing championship playing conditions and excellent service standards while maintaining an exclusive private club atmosphere.

"We intend Oblong Valley Golf Club to stand as one of the world's finest golf clubs," Catarsi stated. "We have been extremely selective in identifying the best people in the business to build our vision. Deciding on our management team, Troon Golf's global reputation and total knowledge of the golf market at this level will certainly help ensure our goal."

Located only an hour and a half from midtown Manhattan, in the foothills of the scenic Berkshire Mountains, Oblong Valley Golf Club will bring an entirely new dimension to the private club lifestyle. Stretching out through glades below Rattlesnake Mountain, Jack Nicklaus' spectacular layout is even more inviting by Webatuck Creek that winds through the middle of the course.

"We are excited to have this opportunity to help see this magnificent project to fruition. Our management philosophies and operational procedures fit perfectly with the level of excellence these gentlemen hold for this project," said Troon Golf Executive Vice President, Acquisition & Development, Tim Schantz.
