Golf’s most successful, influential, innovative companies are highlighted
DALLAS (July 8, 2020) — Arcis Golf, the Dallas-based golf ownership and management company, has been named to the National Golf Foundation’s biennial list of the “Top 100 Businesses in Golf,” one of the industry’s most important recording of successful companies, organizations, and associations of fundamental importance to golfers and the golf business at large.
NGF GOLF 100 celebrates the success of leaders across all vertical categories: apparel and equipment, turf equipment and supply, course management, retail, media & technology, and industry associations.
The inclusion of Arcis Golf on NGF GOLF 100 complements the company’s meteoric rise. Six years ago, Arcis was a small start-up. Today, with 65 private, resort, and daily-fee golf clubs in 14 states and 6,000 employees, it is the second-largest owner and operator of courses in the U.S., its properties positioned in or near major metropolitan areas from coast to coast.
Arcis Golf’s success is due in large part to its building a lifestyle company that reaches far beyond golf. In the past three years, more than $60 million has been invested across its portfolio in property upgrades, new amenities, personnel, training, and systems to maximize their growth and future success. Determined to reinvent the club experience, Arcis Golf tailors its amenities to contemporary consumer lifestyles while hiring best-in-class talent, sourcing local fare, and creating family-friendly signature experiences that become lasting memories.
“Being listed among the most distinguished names in the golf industry is reflective of Arcis Golf’s commitment to enhancing service levels, amenities, and content at our facilities nationwide,” said Blake S. Walker, Founder and CEO of Arcis Golf.
“The NGF has recognized Arcis Golf’s stature as an industry leader and partner in growing the game and making it appealing to all audiences. This is a direct reflection of the commitment of Arcis Golf’s transformational leadership and our team members around the country, as we continue to approach the club business from an entirely new perspective.”
The company also appeared on the Inc. Magazine 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies in 2017 and 2018, a rare feat since only one in three companies record sufficient growth to merit back-to-back inclusion. In 2018 Walker was recognized by EY as the Entrepreneur Of The Year® in the hospitality category for the Southwest region.
“The NGF GOLF 100 highlights the vitality, size and diversity of the U.S. golf market,” said Joe Beditz, President and CEO of NGF. “The list identifies and profiles many of the brands that are well-known to golfers as well as a host of other innovators and influencers that contribute to golf’s economic impact of approximately $84 billion.”
“With a carefully curated collection of lifestyle clubs, we are reimagining the way our members and guests live, connect, and play. We bring a tailored sense of community to today’s consumer.” said Chris Crocker, Chief Marketing Officer. “We are focusing our resources on creating extraordinary experiences and forging emotional connections for our customers. Being recognized by the NGF is an honor for all of us at Arcis Golf.“
