ClubCorp to Upgrade Three Dallas-Area Clubs

ClubCorp has announced investments of more than $3 million in capital improvements to three of its Dallas area clubs, including Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, and Shady Valley Golf Club in Arlington.

The Dallas-area investments were part of ClubCorp's $60 million in capital renovations, expansions, and improvements for 2004. ClubCorp plans to spend another $68 million in 2005 on improving its clubs and resorts.

Upgrades at Gleneagles Country Club and Las Colinas Country Club included complete golf course renovations. The $1.5 million project at Gleneagles included a remodel of the Queen's Course with rebuilt bunkers and new 419 Bermuda grass fairways and L93/Crenshaw bentgrass greens.

At Las Colinas, the $1.5 million project, scheduled to be completed April 1, includes resurfaced greens, rebuilt bunkers with the addition of white sand, a new irrigation system around the greens, and new cart paths. Shady Valley Golf Club is spending more than $300,000 renovating, refurbishing, and improving its clubhouse. The renovations there are set to be complete April 2.

"We recognize that the quality of our properties is crucial to the success of our clubs," said John Beckert, ClubCorp's CEO and president. "We are committed to providing excellence to our members, not just on the service level and with our benefits, but with exceptional facilities as well."
