Inaugural list identifies most successful, influential, innovative companies
DALLAS (April 26, 2018) — Arcis Golf, the Dallas-based golf ownership and management company, has been named to the National Golf Foundation’s inaugural list of the “Top 100 Businesses in Golf,” which identifies the most successful, influential and innovative businesses, organizations, and associations in the golf industry.
With more than 60 private, resort and daily fee clubs nationwide in its portfolio, Arcis Golf has more than doubled its owner-operator management roster in the past five years, the NGF noted.
“We appreciate and truly value being listed among the most distinguished names in the golf industry,” said Blake S. Walker, Founder and CEO of Arcis Golf. “The NGF has recognized Arcis Golf’s commitment as an industry leader to consistently provide unrivaled amenities and tailor every element of the golf and country club experience to exceed all expectations.”
The inaugural NGF Top 100 Businesses in Golf is part of the foundation’s ongoing effort to highlight the vitality, size and diversity of the industry. Widely regarded as the foremost authority in the golf business for data, research and consulting, the NGF created the new initiative to recognize and celebrate the vitality, size and diversity of an industry that has an economic impact in the U.S. of almost $70 billion.
“Arcis Golf is reinventing the modern club experience,” Walker said. “We are making it more relevant to today’s consumer lifestyles.”
Eight distinct weighted criteria were considered. Financial success was a key component, but more subjective criteria included assessments on influence throughout the golf industry, innovations, prominence and leadership, as well as contributions to the growth and vitality of the game as well as to the collective societal good.
At every venue – whether owned or managed – Arcis Golf focuses its resources on creating extraordinary experiences and forging emotional connections with members and guests. During the past three years, Arcis Golf has invested more than $60 million in upgrades, amenities, personnel, training, and systems to maximize the growth and future success of its unique collection of clubs.
Arcis Golf ranked No. 2 in “Travel & Hospitality” and No. 171 overall on the 2017 Inc. 500 list recognizing the fastest-growing private companies in America. In addition to its distinctive collection of clubs, Arcis Golf has built a best-in-class leadership team that is reinventing the modern club experience, making it more customized and relevant to the lifestyles of today’s consumer.
