Posted on August 20, 2009

Renowned Links Course Becomes Latest Addition to Growing Portfolio

Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce Prince's Golf Club as the newest member to its portfolio of managed courses. Situated on the South Coast of England in the village of Sandwich, Prince's Golf Club is one of the most recognized names on the golf course circuit in Europe. The treasured golf club has long been considered one of the finest of its kind and is steeped in history and traditions of the game. The established links course hosted the Open Championship in 1932 and has since welcomed some of Europe's leading golf events. The recently lengthened championship course will also host the final qualifying round for the Open when it returns to the neighboring Royal St. Georges Golf Club in 2011.

Following the devastation of the course during World War II, Sir Guy Campbell and John Morrison were commissioned to restore Prince's Golf Club. Amazingly, 17 of the original greens were saved and a new 27-hole facility was created. The three nine-hole loops called the Shore, Dunes and Himalayas, combine to offer the most authentic, classic links course you will find. Naturally sculpted with deep bunkers, undulating fairways and tricky greens combine to make it one of the most complete and true tests of golf anywhere in the world.

Troon Golf has been working with a wealth of championship courses in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and North America for several years. The company has developed an in-depth understanding of the qualities required to present a world-class championship venue as well as the intricacies of links golf.

"Prince's Golf Club is one of the most traditional and esteemed golf clubs in England whose impressive history is hard to surpass," commented Bruce Glasco, Troon Golf's managing director, Europe, Middle East & Africa. "We are thrilled to be working with such an established name in golf and look forward to forging strong partnerships with the team there."

This rapidly expanding division now oversees operations at 39 courses in 14 countries including Dubai, Portugal, Spain and England with further expansion planned across all regions.
