Jack Nicklaus Helps Celebrate Grand Opening of The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay

Children's Beach House among hundreds of invited guests at Delaware's first private Nicklaus Signature Course

Millsboro, DE - Jack Nicklaus will entertain members, media and invited guests today with an exhibition round of golf at The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay, a luxury gated residential resort. Nicklaus will explain his vision for the design at the official grand opening of The Peninsula Golf & Country Club, Delaware's first private Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Nicklaus will be joined by children from The Children's Beach House, a charitable organization with an ongoing connection to The Peninsula, dedicated to helping children with special needs and their families.

Nicklaus, along with Larry A. Goldstein, president of Odyssey Development and developer of The Peninsula (in partnership with LM Sandler & Sons), will hold a press conference for media at 11:00 a.m. A warm-up clinic from Nicklaus for invited guests will follow. Nicklaus will then christen the 18-hole championship course with a ceremonial tee shot and play his Signature Course. A reception will immediately follow.

The Peninsula boasts an 18-hole, members-only, environmentally sensitive course that runs through each of the resort's nine neighborhoods, including seven holes that hug the pristine waterfront along Indian River Bay and Lingo Creek. Managed by Troon Golf(R),the leader in upscale golf course management, amenities include a practice range, putting green and short-game practice area, Golf Shop and Terrace Grille restaurant.

When completed, The Peninsula will include over 1,400 residential units, ranging from luxury condominiums to custom homes, as well as a $40 million amenity package, including a clubhouse scheduled to open in 2008. The Peninsula will feature luxurious full-service club activities, such as a wave pool, tennis courts and day spa. Membership to The Peninsula Golf and Country Club is available only to homeowners within the development.

The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay is Delaware's first private gated, luxury residential golf resort, set on nearly 800 acres and surrounded by water on three sides. The centerpiece of The Peninsula is Delaware's first private Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, managed by Troon Golf. The heart of the community will be the Lakeside Village Center with casual dining, a gourmet market, as well as a host of facilities for the active-minded, including two pools, a wave lagoon with water slide, a state-of-the-art athletic club and spa, and a tennis center. When completed, The Peninsula will include more than 1,400 residential units ranging from luxury condominiums to custom homes.
