Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it will be managing operations at Running Horse Golf & Country Club, sure to be the premiere private club in the San Joaquin Valley. Currently under development, the course is scheduled to be open for play in 2006.

Located in Fresno, Calif., the 18-hole championship golf course will be the centerpiece to a 464-acre development. The course will be a co-design by Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II of Nicklaus Design located in North Palm Beach, Fla. Each hole will be carefully crafted, incorporating water features and undulating terrain, the perfect test of skill for golfers of all skill levels. Multiple tees will be established to create a variety of distinct yardages ranging from 5,200 to over 7,000 yards. Additionally, multiple bunker features, balanced dogleg holes, and testy par 3s, including an island green on the 15th hole that will kick off four of the stronger finishing holes in Northern California golf. The northwest wind will come into play on many shots, offering a new experience every time out.

"We are thrilled for the opportunity to work with Running Horse Golf & Country Club," stated Hud Hinton, president and COO, Troon Golf. "Members can be assured that our management philosophies and superb playing conditions will contribute positively to their private club experience."

The gated community of Running Horse will consist of 780 home sites, with the majority overlooking the golf course. The community is just minutes from major California thoroughfares and will feature a 65,000-square-foot retail shopping center in addition to other fine amenities.

"After selecting Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II, with their amazing collective record of success in golf course design, we knew we wanted the absolute best in golf course management, as well" said Managing Partner Tom O'Meara. "It was an obvious choice when selecting the team at Troon Golf to become our management partner. Not only are they a world-class organization but they offer our members a tremendous global reciprocal playing program."
