DALLAS, Texas Aug. 22, 2017 – Dallas-based Arcis Golf, one of the country’s leading owner-operators of golf courses, is ranked No. 171 on the newly released 2017 Inc. 5000 list recognizing the fastest-growing private companies in America and also earned the No. 2 rank in the Travel & Hospitality category.
With 2,456% growth in revenues over a three-year period, the distinction on the 36th annual Inc. 5000 list places Arcis Golf among such prestigious company as Microsoft, Domino’s Pizza, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle, Zappos.com and many other well-known names – all past recipients of the Inc. 5000 recognition.
The 2017 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company achieved a staggering three-year average growth of 481%. Arcis Golf’s growth was over 400% higher than the average of this year’s fastest growing companies on the Inc. 5000 list. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.
“We honor just one thing: real achievement by a founder or a team of founders. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great--usually from scratch,” said Eric Schurenberg, president and editor-in-chief of Inc. Magazine. “That's one of the hardest things to do in business, as entrepreneurs know better than anyone.”
In less than four years, Arcis Golf has skyrocketed from a small start-up to the 2nd largest owner and operator of U.S. golf facilities within the hospitality and leisure space through strategic acquisitions, with nearly 70 high-quality private and daily fee facilities positioned in or near major metropolitan areas throughout the United States.
Additionally, Arcis Golf has built a strategy and an irreplaceable and distinctive portfolio, along with a best-in-class leadership team, that is delivering industry-leading organic and same-store growth. This differentiated approach is reinventing the modern club experience, making it more relevant to today’s consumer lifestyles.
“The Inc. 5000 recognition is such an honor and a tribute to our company and leadership team’s innovative approach to this business,” said Arcis Golf CEO Blake Walker. “We are finding and implementing new ways to engage our customers, through unrivaled programming and amenities, game-changing technology, and unprecedented experiences. I’m honored to work with such a talented team.”
Arcis Golf has allocated millions of dollars in major capital improvements in its facilities nationwide and has grown to 3,900 employees.
Arcis Golf will be among the companies honored at the 36th Annual Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala, to be held Oct. 10-12 in Palm Desert, Calif. For more information visit www.inc.com.
