Arcis Golf, owner and operator of golf facilities in the United States, has acquired six Mickelson Golf Properties in the Phoenix area from professional golfer Phil Mickelson and his business partner, Steve Loy.

These exceptional additions to our portfolio support our strategy of owning and operating preeminent properties within each of our key hub or expansion markets, said Blake Walker, founder, and CEO of Arcis Golf. Were excited to bring our unique approach to delivering extraordinary experiences to members and guests at these great private and daily fee facilities.

The six properties include three upscale private clubs and three daily fee facilities. Each course has its own distinctive identity and sense of place.

Mickelson said, “Were entrusting (Arcis) to build upon the success weve created so far with these properties, Mickelson said. We were very impressed with the Arcis leadership team and their commitment to their members and guests, and we look forward to continuing our business relationship.

The three private courses include:

  • The Stone Canyon Club in Oro Valley. The course is located against the Tortolita Mountains, north of Tucson, and was designed by past ACGCA president, Jay Morrish. Recently, the club hosted The Match: Champions for Change featuring Mickelson and basketball legend, Charles Barkley versus NFL Hall of Famer, Peyton Manning and NBA superstar, Steph Curry.
  • The Golf Club at Chaparral Pines which is an 18-hole, par-72 course designed by former U.S. Open and PGA Champion David Graham and noted Scottsdale-based architect Gary Panks. The course originally opened in 1997 and was named one of Golf Digest’s “Top 10 New Private Golf Courses in the U.S.” upon its opening.
  • The Rim Golf Club which is Nestled in Arizona’s Mogollon Rim Country. A Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish design, playing 7,200 yards along forested fairways woven through dramatic rock outcroppings and the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the country. The natural elevations of up to 5,000 feet and native vegetation enhance the strategic challenge of the hazards, with water coming into play on six holes.

The three daily fee include:

  • McDowell Mountain Golf Club located in Scottsdale and plays to 7,072 yards. The course re-opened in October 20111 following revisions, overseen by golf course architect Randy Heckenkemper. The renovations included widening the playing corridors, reshaping fairways, adding additional teeing areas and strategic waste bunkers.
