Arrowhead Golf Course

DALLAS (February 19, 2020) — Three clubs in Colorado operated by Arcis Golf have been honored for excellence by the readers of Colorado Avid Golfer magazine.  

Arrowhead Golf Club in Littleton, a public facility, and two private clubs, The Pinery Country Club and The Club at Pradera, both in Parker, received numerous honors in the magazine’s 2020 CAGGY Awards, which are given based on online voting by thousands of readers. 

Arrowhead Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. design, was ranked second best golf course in the Denver Metro area and its 13th hole was declared the best par 3. The club also was cited among the best courses at which to hold a tournament. 

In keeping with Arcis Golf’s focus on lifestyle and amenities at all its clubs, Arrowhead Golf Club was singled out for its stellar offerings off the golf course, including best après-golf experience (#1) and best wedding/party venue (#1).  

Both of Arcis Golf’s private clubs in Parker—The Pinery Country Club and The Club at Pradera—made the list. Pradera was a staff pick as the best golf course community, while Pinery was “the most underrated club.” 

Jason Witczak, PGA professional and Director of Golf Instruction for The Club at Pradera and Pinery Country Club, was chosen among the best instructors for junior golfers. The Club at Pradera #15

The Pinery Country Club, which offers 27 holes of golf with panoramic vistas, and The Club at Pradera, a spectacular 7,200-yard layout that blends harmoniously with pristine natural surroundings in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains, shared the distinction as Best Value in the Private Club division. 

An industry leader in providing inventive direction and unrivaled lifestyle amenities that complement exceptional playing experiences, Arcis Golf focuses its best-in-class talent and resources on creating extraordinary experiences and forging emotional connections with members and guests. 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 growth and future success. 

The Pinery Country Club #4“Our unwavering commitment is that every Arcis Golf property provide the ultimate club experience for our members and guests,” said Blake S. Walker, founder and CEO of Arcis Golf. “This is certainly exemplified by these three clubs, and we are very proud that our Colorado properties have been recognized by the state’s avid golfers and Colorado Avid Golfer magazine.” 

In January, Arcis Golf was recognized by the National Golf Foundation (NGF) on its biennial list of the “Top 100 Businesses in Golf.” Arcis Golf 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 CAGGY awards divide facilities into two categories—private, public and resort—with voting for instruction and travel destinations as well. The CAGGY awards can be viewed in the Spring edition of the magazine, as well as online at https://coloradoavidgolfer.com/2020-caggy-award-winners/

U.S. Adaptive Golf Alliance Check Presentation

DALLAS (January 28, 2020)  Arcis Golf has renewed its support of the United States Adaptive Golf Alliance, starting the new year with a financial contribution that allowed the USAGA to conduct a successful outreach campaign at the 2020 PGA Show in Orlando, Fla., and will provide additional resources at select Arcis Golf facilities around the country throughout this year. 

The USAGA is a national coalition of 37 adaptive golf organizations with common goals and objectives, promoting and providing resources for athletes with disabilities nationwide. Last year, its member organizations provided adaptive golf to 36,000 individuals across the country annually, of which 26% were wounded veterans.

“Attending the PGA Show, to present disabled golf in a whole new light to the golf industry, has been invaluable and could not have been possible without the support of Arcis Golf the past three years,” said EQ Sylvester, Chairman, USAGA. “There are 20 million physically disabled people in the United States who want to play golf, and with the support of Arcis Golf, this is becoming a reality,” Sylvester added.  The USAGA recently was recognized by the International Network of Golf (ING) with an Industry Honors Award for ‘Player Development.’

For the past three years, Arcis Golf has provided golf course access to adaptive golf programs.  Around the country, PGA professionals within the Arcis Golf portfolio work with these golfers to build confidence in their games.  Through the company’s ongoing support fundraising opportunities are implemented through Arcis Golf courses nationwide.

“The United States Adaptive Golf Alliance is an ideal partner that helps bring more people to the game of golf, as well as bring the game of golf to them,” said Blake Walker, founder and CEO of Dallas-based Arcis Golf. “Our company’s support of the USAGA gives these organizations a platform to build the connections necessary to continue to serve their communities.”

In 2020 Arcis Golf facilities will host adaptive golf clinics, as well as seminars on disabled golf. This year’s USAGA International Championship is to be played at Bear Creek Golf Club in the Dallas Fort Worth metro area, Oct. 20-22.  Bear Creek features two 18-hole Ted Robinson layouts and is known as one of the area’s premier golf events venues.

This summer Arcis Golf’s Ruffled Feathers Golf Club will host “Para-Golf days” to deliver an adaptive golf experience for children with disabilities. The club partners with the Chicago-based Freedom Golf Association, which provided more than 9,450 golf lessons for para-golfers last year.

“Arcis Golf is proud to offer quality experiences, both on and off the course, on a daily basis to a broad spectrum of golfers, of all abilities and disabilities,” said Chris Crocker, Chief Marketing Officer, Arcis Golf. “And we are thrilled that so many Arcis Golf club members and guests have joined us at our various adaptive golf training programs around the country to learn about teaching others with disabilities.”

An industry leader in providing inventive direction and unrivaled lifestyle amenities that complement exceptional playing experiences, Arcis Golf focuses its resources on creating extraordinary experiences and forging emotional connections with members and guests.

Arcis Golf is reinventing the modern club experience, making it more relevant to the lifestyles of today’s consumer by customizing amenities and programs based on what its contemporary membership desires. The company is committed to enhancing service levels, amenities, and programming to further broaden the appeal for members and guests.

In six years, Arcis Golf has skyrocketed from a small start-up to the second-largest owner and operator of private, resort, and daily-fee clubs in the United States. The company’s portfolio features nearly 68 clubs and golf courses in 14 states, positioned in or near major metropolitan areas from coast-to-coast.

The Club at Weston Hills

DALLAS, Texas (Dec. 6, 2019) – The Club at Weston Hills—the Fort Lauderdale area’s preeminent luxury lifestyle club—has been reimagined from the ground up. Formerly known as Weston Hills Country Club, the new name is just one part of an extensive transformation to this family-oriented club that has been operated by Arcis Golf since August 2018.  More than $2 million has been invested in the golf courses as well as to upgrade and invigorate facilities, programming, and amenities—from landscaping, clubhouse, and event spaces to the introduction of exciting food and beverage offerings.

The new name and branding were unveiled at a member celebration last evening, according to General Manager Eric J. von Hofen.

“The steady stream of upgrades and improvements to the club during the past year has been wholeheartedly embraced by both long-time and new members,” von Hofen said. “It’s only fitting that these changes come with a fresh name and rebranding. The future of The Club at Weston Hills is very bright.”

The 7,069-yard Tour Course, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. (RTJ II) design, has been completely renovated with new bunkering, the installation of Celebration Bermudagrass on all fairways, and the addition of a new short-game area at the Weston Hills Learning Center, the club’s state-of-the-art instruction facility. The multimillion-dollar project was led by award-winning Fry/Straka Global Golf Course Design.

The Tour Course was previously home of The Honda Classic (1992-95), the Dan Marino Celebrity Invitational, and the LPGA Chrysler Plymouth Tournament of Champions. It will host a 2020 U.S. qualifying event for the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica, Jan. 7-10, 2020.

The Club at Weston Hills features a second Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design—the Players Course—which plays to 7,272 yards from the championship tees.

“Beyond the new name, this change is about a renewal of the club’s individuality and character,” said Blake Walker, Founder and CEO, Arcis Golf, which owns and operates The Club at Weston Hills.  “It is a more suitable representation of our memberships’ identity and the relationships the club has built throughout the community.”

The Club at Weston Hills provides an amenity-rich, lifestyle environment for members, their families, and guests, including eight, lighted Har-Tru tennis courts served by a dedicated tennis clubhouse, an extensive fitness center, and heated, outdoor swimming pool, in addition to very active men’s and women’s golf associations. 

A spectacular, 50,000-square-foot clubhouse provides a beautiful members’ dining room and bar overlooking the golf courses, along with a variety of private rooms for business or social functions with seating up to 300 persons. Under the guidance of Executive Chef Alfonso Mendoza, the club’s culinary offerings have been updated to reflect the changing tastes and desires of the membership.

A full slate of year-round programming—from wine and culinary events to swim lessons, kite flying, and holiday festivities—entertains all age groups and interests. Additionally, the nearby neighborhood boasts resort-style living in beautiful lakefront homes with breathtaking views of shimmering lakes and the golf courses.

In six years, Arcis Golf has skyrocketed from a small start-up to the second-largest owner and operator of private, resort, and daily-fee clubs in the United States. The company’s current portfolio features 65 clubs and golf courses in 14 states, positioned in or near major metropolitan areas from coast to coast. Arcis Golf has invested more than $60 million in upgrades, amenities, personnel, training, and systems to maximize the growth and future success of its collection of clubs.

As evident at The Club at Weston Hills and throughout its portfolio, Arcis Golf has built a best-in-class leadership team that is reinventing the modern club experience, making it more relevant to the lifestyles of today’s consumer. The company is committed to enhancing service levels, amenities, and programming to further broaden the appeal for members and guests.

The company appeared on the Inc. Magazine 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies in 2017 and 2018.  As well, in 2018 Walker was recognized by EY as the Entrepreneur Of The Year® in the hospitality category for the Southwest region.
