ARCIS GOLF ACQUIRES TPC VALENCIA

DALLAS (Jan. 30, 2018) — Arcis Golf, the second-largest owner and operator of golf facilities in the United States, has acquired TPC Valencia from FivePointÒ, a developer of mixed-use, master-planned communities in California.  The upscale, private club is located in Valencia, Calif., approximately 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles in the Santa Clarita Valley.

TPC Valencia, which opened in 2003, was designed by PGA TOUR Design Services, in consultation with two-time major champion Mark O’Meara.  The par 72 course stretches 7,218 yards at championship length with a routing that offers sweeping valley views, complemented by an adjacent majestic oak preserve, and large greens.  The club’s stunning 32,400 square-foot “Old California” ranch-style clubhouse evokes a feeling and sense of casual elegance.

Arcis Golf’s footprint in the Santa Clarita Valley now includes both this facility and Valencia Country Club, the venerable Robert Trent Jones, Sr. design, which the company also owns. The two clubs are literally “across the street” from one another along Interstate 5.  This burgeoning market includes several affluent communities throughout the valley and 21,500 future homes in nearby Newhall Ranch.

The company plans significant capital reinvestment in both golf courses and clubs, as well as enhanced service levels, a robust travel reciprocity program, amenities, and programming to further broaden the appeal for members and guests.  Upon completion, the club will be rebranded as part of a multi-club lifestyle amenity to the community.

“We are excited to add this facility to our growing collection of one-of-a-kind lifestyle properties,” said Blake Walker, Founder and CEO of Arcis Golf.  “This club fits perfectly with our strategy of owning and operating exceptional golf clubs and enhances our ability to deliver differentiated experiences to our members and guests within the greater Los Angeles region.”

“We are proud of our role in bringing this great golf club to our community,” said Don Kimball FivePoint’s local community president.  “TPC Valencia has established its position among prominent private clubs across Southern California and has elevated the quality of life here in Valencia and the Santa Clarita Valley. We thank the members and the entire community for its support over the past 15 years.  We are confident these member relationships and great memories will continue to grow under the new ownership.”

A club industry leader in providing inventive direction and unrivaled lifestyle amenities that complement exceptional playing experiences, Dallas-based Arcis Golf has expanded its portfolio of owned and operated clubs to include over 60 private, resort, and daily-fee club clubs throughout the US.

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.

LORETO, Baja California Sur, Mexico (January 25, 2018) — What’s better than playing the newly completed Rees Jones-designed golf course along the Baja Peninsula or fishing in the indigo waters of the Sea of Cortez? Doing both in the extra-special “Unlimited Golf & Fishing Package” offered by Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa at The Islands of Loreto.

Guests can play continuous rounds of golf, as many as desired, at the dazzling new Danzante Bay Golf Club – featuring 18 holes overlooking the ocean – and go fishing in an area once described by Jacques Cousteau as the “aquarium of the world” on a privately chartered boat.

The “Unlimited Golf & Fishing Package” also features lodging for three nights in a Deluxe Studio Suite at Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa, a Villa Group property that features 4,447 acres of unspoiled beauty along one of the most breathtaking spots in the hemisphere.

The package is available now through May 30th, travel window from now until December 20th, 2018. Guests can choose either an all-inclusive or European package option.

The all-inclusive package rate, at $1,056 per person, based on double occupancy, includes:

Three nights in a deluxe studio suite at Villa del Palmar
All meals at resort restaurants
Domestic and international beverages at resort restaurants
Unlimited golf, with use of golf cart and practice facilities
One day-trip of fishing on a panga boat
For non-fishing guests– an appointment at Sabila Spa for a treatment, facial, or wet area access
$25 credit at Sabila Spa (may not be combined with other certificates)
The European package rate, at $836 per person, based on double occupancy, includes:

Three nights in a deluxe studio suite at Villa del Palmar
Continental breakfast for three mornings
Unlimited golf, with use of golf cart and practice facilities
One daytrip fishing on a panga boat
For non-fishing guests– an appointment at Sabila Spa for a treatment, facial, or wet area access
$25 credit at Sabila Spa (may not be combined with other certificates)
Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa at the Islands of Loreto boasts stunning views of the Sea of Cortez and Sierra de la Giganta Mountain Range, three outstanding restaurants, five swimming pools, the luxurious Sabila Spa, beautiful beaches, tennis courts, miles of hiking trails and sport fishing.

Part of a luxury master-planned community adjacent to the coastline of Baja’s inland Pacific marine sanctuary, Danzante Bay Golf Club has five sets of tees, ranging between 4,916 and 7,237 yards, and features wide fairways and greens that must be carefully judged but are never unfair. Most of the entrances to the greens are open — allowing approach shots to run on safely — while the holes along the cliffs feature strategically placed collection areas to keep errant shots from taking the plunge into the blue water below.

Along with the changing terrain, the winds can be different day to day and even during the day, conditions that influence shot value and strategy.

The resort is just a two-hour flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) via Alaska Airlines and is accessible seasonally with direct WestJet flights from Calgary, and from Tijuana via Calafia Airlines.
