Cowboys Golf Club, the first and only NFL-themed golf club in the world, received considerable praise as the Best Overall Golf Club. “The course was in spectacular shape all year,” Avid Golfer wrote in the cover story for its November 2018 issue. “The greens were perfect and fairways lush. This track is a must-play for anyone looking to treat themselves to a day of wonderful golf.”
Beyond golf, “A renovation of the clubhouse and Ring of Honor Kitchen + Bar further separated this experience from the rest,” the magazine wrote. The ratings panelists also were impressed with the jalapeno cheddar sausages at the Halfway House – “worth the price of admission alone,” as well as the rotation of local micro brews in the bar.
“We appreciate Avid Golfer Magazine recognizing our collection of clubs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” said Blake Walker, CEO, Arcis Golf. “These awards reflect the magazine’s knowledge of the variety and diversity of quality golf clubs throughout the area. Arcis Golf is proud to hold onto that ‘No. 1 club overall’ honor and equally pleased to offer quality experiences, both on and off the course, on a daily basis to a broad spectrum of golfers.”

The current Arcis Golf portfolio features nearly 60 clubs and golf courses in 15 states, positioned in or near major metropolitan areas from coast-to-coast.
Providing inventive direction that has redesigned the club experience, Arcis Golf has invested more than $60 million in facility upgrades, amenities, personnel, training, digital media and technology to maximize the growth and success of its unique lifestyle brand.
