Robb Report Backs Atunyote

The Atunyote Golf Club at the Oneida
Nation’s Turning Stone Resort and Casino has been selected as one of the
world’s finest new courses by the prestigious Robb Report, the
international authority on luxury lifestyle. Robb Report’s 17th annual “Best of the Best” issue is the “culmination of
a year’s search for the luxury world’s most extraordinary new products and
services,” according to the magazine. The eagerly awaited June issue will
arrive on newsstands on May 24. Atunyote, designed by Tom Fazio, is listed among the “Best Golf Courses,”
one of only nine recently opened layouts in the world to earn the elite
status. The other honorees are located in Tasmania, China, Canouan Island,
Florida, South Carolina, California, Louisiana and New Jersey.

“We are very pleased with being honored by such a prestigious publication
as Robb Report,” said Ray Halbritter, Oneida Nation Representative and CEO
of the Nation’s enterprises. “It confirms Turning Stone’s status as not
only the largest golf resort in New York State, but a world-class golfing
destination as well.”

The course architect is equally gratified. “Robb Report naming the
Atunyote Golf Club as one of the ‘Best Golf Courses’ is a reflection of
Turning Stone Resort and Casino’s commitment to the highest quality for
its guests,” Fazio said. “We are very proud of the golf course we designed
at Atunyote and it is an honor to be part of such a special club.”

In addition to the latest Robb Report honor, the course was named by
Travel & Leisure Golf as one of the “Ten Best New Public/Resort Courses”
and Golf Magazine included it on its 2004 list of the “Top 10 New Courses
You Can Play.”

The Kaluhyat Golf Club, created by Robert Trent Jones Jr., made the Golf
Magazine list in 2003 and was also included in Golf Digest’s ranking of
“America’s Best New Upscale Public Courses.”


Shenendoah, designed by Rick Smith, is one of “America’s 100 Greatest Golf
Courses” as determined by Golf Digest and it earned four-and-a-half stars
in the magazine’s “Best Places to Play” guide.
