Arcis Golf – the 2nd largest and fastest-growing owner and operator of private, resort, and daily fee clubs in the United States – has added TPC River’s Bend in Maineville, Ohio, to its growing portfolio. This is the 10th club acquisition completed by Arcis in less than a year and a half.

TPC River’s Bend – Arnold Palmer-designed golf course

TPC River’s Bend par-72, 7,180-yard championship layout, designed by Arnold Palmer, was crafted to blend harmoniously with its surroundings.

The course meanders through corridors of mature hardwoods, creeks, and waterfalls, with gentle elevation changes creating a stunning backdrop for a memorable test of golf. Water comes into play on six holes.

While challenging enough for professionals, TPC River’s Bend offers multiple sets of tees, including a set of family tees for novice golfers.
