Arcis Golf has acquired Austin-based Dominion Golf Group’s portfolio of clubs, including Lantana Golf Club, according to a news release.
The purchase, which closed on April 22, includes Lantana, three clubs in the Austin area and The Dominion Country Club, a former professional tour venue in San Antonio.
Designed by Jay and Carter Morrish, Lantana Golf Club opened in 2002 and transitioned to a private club in early 2009. Jim Sanders, General Manager of Lantana Golf Club since July 2015, was let go during the transition.
“The addition of Dominion’s distinctive and well-respected portfolio of private clubs aligns well with our strategy of owning and operating the preeminent properties within each of our respective hub or expansion markets,” said Blake Walker, Founder and CEO of Arcis Golf. “These clubs further differentiate our carefully curated collection of lifestyle properties.”
Arcis Golf now owns 18 clubs in Texas and is the second-largest owner and operator of golf facilities in the United States, with clubs in 14 states from coast to coast.
“For the past 14 years, our team has pursued excellence and quality for these five clubs,” said Steven Held, President and CEO of Dominion Golf Group. “I am confident that our clubs will continue to thrive and that our members and their families will enjoy Arcis Golf’s ownership and operation.”
Arcis Golf aims to make the modern club experience more relevant to the lifestyles of today’s consumer by customizing amenities and programs based on what its contemporary membership most desires, according to the news release. The company says it is committed to enhancing service levels, amenities and programming to further broaden the appeal for members and guests.
During the past four 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 collection of private, resort and daily-fee clubs throughout the United States.
