Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing, has signed an agreement to help develop and manage the exciting new golf development at Rossington Hall in Yorkshire, England. The luxurious Rossington Hall, set on 250 acres, has grand ambitions of becoming an elite golf destination and host-venue of the European Tour.

Located in the heart of Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Rossington Hall is already an established wedding, dining and events venue. The property will soon feature an 18-hole championship golf course with adjacent nine-hole academy course, each designed by Neil Coles. Situated within the estate, the course will feature an accompanying clubhouse and leisure facilities in a manner that will pay homage to its Victorian heritage. "We are thrilled to add Rossington Hall's golf development to our collection of courses in the United Kingdom and look forward to delivering an exceptional golf experience," commented Jon Schauder, director of business development, Troon EMEA. "This is an exciting era for Rossington Hall, the community and all of its partners. Located in an established golf and leisure market, the development has all the necessary stakeholders to make it a resounding success."

The new golf development forms part of an extensive restoration program put in place by the current owners that began in 2011. Seven existing bedrooms, each decorated to reflect the history of the Hall, feature the perfect blend of Victorian elegance and modern luxury. Further expansion is due to take place at the stately home, which will deliver additional hotel rooms and further dining facilities from its numerous state rooms.

"With the proven track record and business credentials of both the European Tour and Troon, we couldn't be better placed to create an unparalleled golf experience here at Rossington Hall," commented Gary Gee, owner of Rossington Hall on behalf of Rossington Hall Golf Developments Ltd. "Troon is renowned for delivering world-class golf facilities and we look forward to working with them closely in the development of Rossington Hall and to welcoming golfers as soon as possible."

The addition of golf has been outlined in a planning application for the project, supported by Welcome to Yorkshire - the local authority working with the tourism industry, local authorities and the wider business community in Yorkshire and will be submitted later in 2015.

Rossington Hall joins an illustrious list of award-winning golf properties in the Troon portfolio in the EMEA region that includes The Grove in England, Chateau d'Augerville in France, Abu Dhabi Golf Club in Abu Dhabi, Lofoten Links in Norway and The Els Club in Dubai.

The selection of Troon by the ownership readily acknowledges Troon's ability to develop sustainable golf experiences, including its expert agronomy team. Troon's position as the industry leader for delivering the finest playing surfaces means its facilities regularly host the world's leading tours, with Rossington Hall joining Troon's international collective and the likes of 1932 Open Championship host, Prince'sGolf Club; London's country estate and AMEX World Golf Championship host, The Grove; and 10-time Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship host, Abu Dhabi Golf Club.
