    MIAMI, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Palace Resorts announces the opening of a
 Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Moon Palace Golf Resort in Cancun,
 Mexico for the Fall of 2002.  It is the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf
 Course designed exclusively for Palace Resorts and also becomes the first Jack
 Nicklaus course in the Cancun area.
     This 18-hole championship golf course is anticipated to boost Cancun's
 appeal as a golf destination.
     "Our goal was to design a golf course that would be fun and memorable to
 players of all levels.  Perhaps one day, other courses in the region will try
 to compare themselves to Moon Palace," said Jack Nicklaus.
     Created to suit Moon Palace's clientele and harmonize with the tropical
 lushness of Cancun, this 7,165-yard, 72-par golf course features four sets of
 tees and is lined with native jungle vegetation, natural wetlands and bunkers
 that have been strategically placed.  Highlights include: the signature hole,
 number 17, a 151-yard, par 3, that plays downwind to an island green; the
 sixth hole, a par 4 that plays 336 yards and is drivable, but has a carry over
 water; and the finishing hole, a strong par 4 that plays 446 yards.
