ORANGE COUNTY, CA - PM Realty Group (PMRG), a nationally recognized, full-service commercial real estate firm, today announced that it completed the acquisition of Dove Canyon Golf and Country Club in Orange County, California for an undisclosed sale price. PMRG represented both the buyer, Pacific Links International, a Canadian-owned golf corporation, and seller, Sanyo Foods, one of Japan's largest food producer, in the transaction.
The acquisition of Dove Canyon marks the tenth property to be added to Pacific Links' growing portfolio, which includes courses located in Hawaii, Las Vegas, and West Virginia. Dove Canyon Country Club is the only private Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in Orange County, and features rolling fairways surrounded by canyons and waterfalls, and designed to blend seamlessly with its natural landscape. The par-71, 6,902 yard championship layout is intended for golfers of all abilities.
"The sale of Dove Canyon Country Club represents one of the most significant golf course transactions to date nationally, both in terms of quality of asset and purchase value," said Ken Arimitsu, Vice President of PMRG. Dove Canyon is the third property that Arimitsu, along with Keith Cubba of Colliers International - Las Vegas, has transacted with Pacific Links International. Prior to the Dove Canyon transaction, the team served as exclusive brokers in the sale of Southern Highlands Country Club and South Shore Country Club, both located in Las Vegas.
The previous owner of Dove Canyon, Sanyo Foods, purchased the golf and country club in 1992 as an investment. Pacific Links will provide additional value to club members by featuring a unique reciprocal access structure granting members access to more than 60 world-class clubs around the globe, which has proven to be a successful business strategy as the company continues to grow its portfolio of courses throughout North America, Australia and Southeast Asia.
