ClubLink Acquires Club De Golf Islesmere

KING CITY, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 3, 2007) - ClubLink Corporation ("ClubLink") (TSX:LNK) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of Club de Golf Islesmere located in Laval, Quebec. Islesmere was founded in 1919, which makes it the fourth oldest course in the Montreal area. The initial design of 18 holes was created by Mr. Willie Parkes Jr. whom had already designed numerous courses in Scotland and England. The construction of a third nine-hole course began in 1966 and was completed in 1969. The project was under the supervision of Howard Watson.

Islesmere complements an outstanding selection of ClubLink Golf Clubs including Fontainebleau, Val des Lacs and Le Maitre in the Greater Montreal Region and our 23 properties in the Greater Toronto Area and Muskoka Region. Additionally, Islesmere is only a short drive from our Clubs in the Nation's Capital Region which include Kanata, Hautes Plaines, GreyHawk and Eagle Creek. Islesmere will be operated as a Platinum Level Member Club giving Islesmere members reciprocal free access to all ClubLink member courses. Memberships may be purchased at introductory rates by calling 450-689-4130.

Mr. Michel Bergeron, President of Club de Golf Islesmere Inc., has affirmed: "We are happy to join the ClubLink family. Islesmere is convinced it will be able to maintain its tradition and that it will strongly contribute to the success of ClubLink in Quebec, through the quality of its course and of its members and by reason of its notoriety."

Islesmere has held many important tournaments, which contributed to its reputation including: Quebec Open, Montreal Open, Canadian PGA Championship and Canadian Open. Past winners of these events include Willie Lamb, Bob Gray, Stan Leonard, Moe Norman, Doug Ford and Lord Byron Nelson. Byron's win at Islesmere included a course record 63 and quickly became part of the PGA Tour history. This victory was part of Byron's record 11 consecutive victories during that 1945 season.

Rai Sahi, President and Chief Executive Officer of ClubLink, said: "We believe that Islesmere enhances the fine cluster of courses that we have developed in the Greater Montreal Region and demonstrates our continued commitment to this important market. We believe that ClubLink members will particularly enjoy the unique challenge offered by this 27 hole classic."
