Walters Golf is Committed To the Las Vegas Market
Years of Experience Managing Premier Resort Golf Courses and Country Clubs
Walters entered the golf industry in 1991 with the acquisition of Paradise Hills Country Club in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Prior to its sale to National Golf Properties, it was recognized as the finest daily-fee golf facility in Albuquerque. His acquisition program continued with the 1994 purchase of Mesa del Sol Country Club in Yuma, Arizona, which was followed by the purchase of the Golf Club of Illinois – widely considered one of the top five daily-fee golf courses in the Chicago area. In 1995, Walters completed the purchase of the Chicago area’s Eagle Brook Country Club, marking the company’s first venture into the private country club market. The following year, Walters Golf acquired the Burr Hill Club, which was renamed Blackhawk Golf Club, also in the Chicago area. These courses have all been sold after extensive improvements in course appearance, maintenance and operation.
Helping to Improve the Las Vegas Valley
Desert Pines Golf Course opened in late 1996 in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, and represented the first golf facility developed and constructed by Walters Golf in a public-private partnership with the City of Las Vegas. The company acquired Sunrise Country Club in 1997, renamed it Stallion Mountain Country Club and created the Las Vegas area’s premier corporate outing facility and special events center. Walters Golf began construction of the Royal Links Golf Club in 1997, which, immediately after opening in 1998, was named one of the “Top 10 New Courses” by Golf Magazine. In partnership with McCarran International Airport, the company developed paradise-inspired Bali Hai Golf Club on the Las Vegas Strip. Bali Hai Golf Club opened in 2000 to rave reviews of its entire golf facility, along with its fine dining establishment named Cili Restaurant.
With the proven ability and record of success in completing all aspects of golf course development and golf operation, Walters Golf has assembled one of the most diverse and experienced management teams in the golf industry. It is one of the few companies that boasts the professionals capable of designing the world-class golf venues, as well as the staff to manage the construction, operation and aggressive marketing of the facilities.
Las Vegas is quickly becoming America’s most exciting golf destination, and we’re proud to be leading the way.
