Walters Golf, which owns Bali Hai and Royal Links in Las Vegas sold Desert Pines Golf Club August 1 to Dallas, Texas-based Arcis Equity Partners. Arcis plans to implement a multi-million dollar capital improvement initiative over the next eighteen months. Eagle Golf Management will manage and operate Desert Pine for Arcis.
Open since 1996, Desert Pines Golf Club is a Dye Designs course. The club features thousands of mature pines, undulating fairways, and a design meant to emulate Sand Hill style courses located in the Carolinas. The course was owned and operated by Walters Golf from its opening until the transfer of ownership was finalized.
“Though we no longer own the course, we’re proud of the legacy we’re leaving behind. We couldn’t be happier with the new owners, and we’re confident the new management, Eagle Golf, will continue to elevate the quality of golf in Las Vegas,” said Mike Luce, President of Walters Golf.
