For the Second Year in a Row, Arcis Golf Named to Inc. 5000 List
of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Only one in three corporations merits back-to-back selection
DALLAS, Aug. 24, 2018 – Arcis Golf—the second largest fee simple owner-operator of private, resort, and daily fee clubs in the United States—has joined an elite group by again making Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 List, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies for the second straight year.
Only one out of three companies warrant enough growth to merit back-to-back annual honors. Arcis Golf achieved the rare repeat by showing 254 percent growth in the three-year period analyzed for the 2018 list. In doing so, Arcis Golf continues to outperform the vast majority of this elite group.
A club lifestyle innovator and industry leader, Arcis Golf has a portfolio of more than 60 clubs and golf courses in 15 states. Providing inventive direction that has redesigned the club experience, Arcis Golf has invested more than $60,000,000 in facility upgrades, amenities, personnel, training, digital media and technology to maximize the growth and success of its unique lifestyle brand.
Capital improvements during the past three years – based on Arcis Golf’s reimagining of the club experience – have resulted in award-winning clubhouse transformations, locally-sourced dining concepts, and golf course renovations, all while generating dynamic digital content and programming.
Arcis is committed to broadening the sense of community at its clubs, while tailoring them to today’s consumer lifestyles, with family-friendly activities and signature experiences that are the marks of Arcis club life. “Arcis Golf is reinventing the club experience with an emphasis on lifestyle,” said Blake Walker, CEO of the Dallas-based Arcis Golf. “The imaginative concepts of our leadership team allow us to deliver new, often unexpected programming and robust amenities to members and guests.”
Now in its 37th year, the Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – independent small businesses. Among the now big-name companies that first gained national attention through the list are Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many others.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are to be featured in the September issue of Inc., now available on newsstands.
