Travel + Leisure Golf Ranks Promontory No. 6 on 2008 List of 'America's Top 100 Golf Communities'

    PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 9 /CNW/ -- Promontory, Utah's family-friendly,
luxury, second-home community overlooking historic Park City, is once again in
the top 10 of Travel + Leisure Golf magazine's "America's Top 100 Golf
Communities" list for the third consecutive year, ranking No. 6 in the
magazine's 2008 edition.
    "We are very pleased by this distinctive honor," said Francis Najafi, CEO
of Pivotal Group, developer of Promontory. "With our new Jack Nicklaus
Signature Course joining our Pete Dye Canyon Golf Course last year, and
courses on the way from Forrest Richardson and Tom Weiskopf, it's evident why
Promontory is the top-ranked golf destination in the Rockies."

America's best communities to live with 36 holes of championship golf and a
broad range of amenities available to its members, including a
state-of-the-art Equestrian Center, fly-fishing, skiing, world-class member
clubhouse (featuring a tennis court, waterslides and indoor gym) and the
innovative Kinnikinnick Kids Cabin.
    "It's an honor to be recognized for the community we've built," said Rich
Sonntag, Managing Director of Promontory. "The ranking is more than just a
number, it's an acknowledgement of the outstanding people and programming that
makes Promontory exceptional."
    The ranking by Travel + Leisure Golf adds to the growing list of awards
and recognitions for Promontory, including the November / December 2007 issue
of Travel + Leisure Golf in which The Painted Valley Course was named one of
the ten "Best New Courses 2007" and accolades for the Dye Canyon Course Golf
Shop, which was named one of the top "100 Best Golf Shops" for 2008 by Golf
