Arcis Golf Properties Honored Among “Best” By Avid Golfer Magazine

Cowboys Golf Club No. 1 Overall Golf Club In DFW Region for 17th year in a row

DALLAS (Nov. 15, 2018) – Dallas-based Arcis Golf, one of the country’s leading owner-operators of golf courses, again has all eight of its Dallas-Fort Worth golf facilities honored by Avid Golfer Magazine in the annual “Best of Public Golf” edition. The magazine recognized golf courses within geographic sections of the Metroplex, as well as in specialty categories that included food, practice facilities, and retail.


Arcis’ legendary Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine again earned honors as “Best Overall Golf Club” in Dallas-Fort Worth – a “winning streak” that has now reached an amazing 17 years in a row. Avid Golfer “Best of” awards also went to:

  • The Golf Club at Fossil Creek (No. 7 overall in “West” DFW rankings)
  • Bear Creek Golf Club (No. 9 overall in “West” DFW rankings)
  • Iron Horse Golf Course (No. 15 overall in “West” DFW rankings)
  • Lake Park Golf Course (Honorable Mention in “East” DFW rankings)
  • Mansfield National Golf Club (Honorable Mention in “West” DFW rankings)
  • Plantation Golf Club (Honorable Mention in “East” DFW rankings)
  • The Golf Club at Twin Creeks (Honorable Mention in “East” DFW rankings)

Arcis Golf courses also are ranked on several Specialty Awards lists:

  • Top Luxury Courses: The Golf Club at Fossil Creek
  • Top Mid-Priced Courses: Bear Creek Golf Club, Iron Horse Golf Course
  • Best Addition to Halfway House: “Frozen Jack & Coke” at Cowboys Golf Club

Cowboys Golf Club, the first and only NFL-themed golf club in the world, received considerable praise as the Best Overall Golf Club. “The course was in spectacular shape all year,” Avid Golfer wrote in the cover story for its November 2018 issue. “The greens were perfect and fairways lush. This track is a must-play for anyone looking to treat themselves to a day of wonderful golf.”
Beyond golf, “A renovation of the clubhouse and Ring of Honor Kitchen + Bar further separated this experience from the rest,” the magazine wrote. The ratings panelists also were impressed with the jalapeno cheddar sausages at the Halfway House – “worth the price of admission alone,” as well as the rotation of local micro brews in the bar.

“We appreciate Avid Golfer Magazine recognizing our collection of clubs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” said Blake Walker, CEO, Arcis Golf. “These awards reflect the magazine’s knowledge of the variety and diversity of quality golf clubs throughout the area. Arcis Golf is proud to hold onto that ‘No. 1 club overall’ honor and equally pleased to offer quality experiences, both on and off the course, on a daily basis to a broad spectrum of golfers.”

Arcis Golf has skyrocketed in less than five years from a small start-up to the second largest owner and operator of private, resort, and daily fee clubs in the United States. The current Arcis Golf portfolio features nearly 60 clubs and golf courses in 15 states, positioned in or near major metropolitan areas from coast-to-coast.

Providing inventive direction that has redesigned the club experience, Arcis Golf has invested more than $60 million in facility upgrades, amenities, personnel, training, digital media and technology to maximize the growth and success of its unique lifestyle brand.

“Arcis Golf is reinventing the club experience with an emphasis on lifestyle,” Walker said. “The imaginative concepts of our leadership team allow us to deliver new, often unexpected programming and robust amenities to members and guests.”
