Arcis Golf recently acquired TPC Valencia from the PGA Tour and has changed the name of the course in the Santa Clarita Valley to The Oaks Club at Valencia.
The course is located about 38 miles northwest of Los Angeles on Interstate 5.
“Beyond the new name, this change is about a renewal of the club’s individuality and character,” said Blake Walker, chairman and chief executive officer of Dallas-based Arcis Golf, which also operates nearby Valencia Country Club.
“It is a more suitable representation of our memberships’ identity and the relationships the club has built throughout the valley.”
The Oaks Club at Valencia is an upscale, private club that previously was part of the TPC Network of golf properties, and the new name is meant to reflect the oak-laden landscape of the Santa Clarita Valley.
With the two affiliated golf clubs on opposite sides of Interstate 5, Arcis Golf serves a collection of affluent communities throughout the valley, including the residents of nearby Newhall Ranch.
“The Oaks Club at Valencia is firmly established among prominent private clubs across Southern California,” Walker said. “Arcis Golf is committed to operating the two premier golf venues in the region. Our focus is to redefine the club lifestyle with unrivaled amenities and unique experiences, addressing what our contemporary membership most desires.
“We want to sincerely thank the PGA Tour for its partnership and appreciate the support it has given the club during its development. Arcis Golf looks forward to elevating the experience both on and off the golf course, creating new memories that will last for lifetimes.”
The original TPC Valencia course was designed by PGA Tour Design Services in consultation with two-time major champion Mark O’Meara and opened in 2003. It plays to a length of 7,218 yards, with a par of 72.
The Oaks at Valencia, located adjacent to Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park, offers sweeping the views of the picturesque Santa Clarita Valley and features an adjacent majestic oak preserve and large greens.
The casually-elegant 32,400-square-foot clubhouse was designed in “Old California” ranch-style, and a multi-million-dollar renovation is planned for the building, beginning late this summer.
In May, the club will begin a renovation of the driving range, increasing the size and improving the turf quality of the practice area.
